Pimp Sues Nike for Not Putting Warning Label on Sneakers
« on: January 17, 2014, 08:49:32 PM »
Rule by moonbats has stagnated the economy and left few channels for legendary American ingenuity. One remaining channel is inventing ever more preposterous lawsuits for the purpose of making money the new-fangled way — legal looting:

Quote
A 26-year-old Portland pimp has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike, claiming the shoe manufacturer is partially responsible for a brutal beating that helped net him a 100-year prison sentence.

Sirgiorgiro Clardy claims Nike should have placed a label in his Jordan shoes warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon. He was wearing a pair when he repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy’s prostitute in June 2012. …

In his three-page complaint handwritten from the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Clardy claims that Nike, Chairman Phil Knight and other executives failed to warn consumers that the shoes could be used as a weapon to cause serious injury or death.

“Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potentially dangerous product …” wrote Clardy, who is representing himself. “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.”

 A great legal mind went to waste when Clardy turned to the pimping profession.

His performance in the courtroom was noteworthy:
Quote
During his two-week trial and his two-day sentencing hearing, Clardy was known for his unusual courtroom antics. He shouted expletives at the judge, prosecutors and jurors.

A psychologist declared him an anti-social psychopath who was 100 percent likely to commit violent crimes again. And Clardy disagreed so loudly — making such a scene — that he was removed from the courtroom.

 If that sounds familiar, you might be thinking of the courtroom antics of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, whose cause was taken up by the radical leftist Obama chose to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Social Justice.

Maybe, given a presidential pardon, Clardy could pursue a legal career after all.

I used to work in the office of the circuit clerk of a large metropolitan court system, and you wouldn't believe the idiotic filings and letters we received of inmates. Mr. Clardy is just following a time-honored tradition of wasting the court's time.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

What's next?  People suing cutlery makers because their spoons and forks are making them fat?

You could have had a career as an attorney. That's really good thinking. I bet you there some juries out there that would buy that. – say, you're not lawyer, are you?
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.

I think Michael Moore is already considering a suit. :silly:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
