Unclear on the Concept
Oregon inmate Sirgiorgio Clardy, 26, filed a handwritten $100 million lawsuit in January against Nike for inadequately marketing its Air Jordans. Clardy, a convicted pimp, earned an "enhanced" penalty for using a "dangerous weapon" to maim a john, i.e., he stomped and kicked a man after accusing him of skipping out on a payment. The "dangerous weapon" was apparently his shoe. Clardy said Nike has some responsibility for his being incarcerated because it failed to label the shoe a "dangerous weapon."
