Just Don’t Do it!

An Oregon man is suing Nike trying to get the athletic apparel powerhouse to foot some of the bill for his actions.

According to news reports, Sirgiorgiro Clardy used his Nike Air Jordans to stomp the face of a “client” after the victim refused to pay for the services of his “escort.” The man required stitches and plastic surgery, and Clardy was found guilty of second-degree assault, as well as other charges.

Clardy is suing Nike for $100 million, claiming the shoes should have come with a warning that they could be used as a dangerous weapon.

Representing himself and in a handwritten complaint from jail, Clardy wrote: “Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potentially dangerous product … Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”

Clardy has also asked a judge to order Nike to begin attaching warning labels to all “potentially dangerous” merchandise.
