Pimp Sues Nike For Not Warning Shoes Could Be Dangerous if Used to Beat People

By Elisha Fieldstadt, Staff Writer, NBC News

January 11, 2014

A Portland pimp is suing Nike for not placing a warning label in their shoes specifying that they could be used as a dangerous weapon -- after he was sentenced to 100 years in prison for brutally beating a john with his sneaker.

Sirgiorgiro Clardy, 26, claims Nike should have placed a warning in the shoes warning consumers that the kicks have the potential to be used as a dangerous weapon, according to The Oregonian newspaper.

Clardy is seeking $100 million for what he believes was the shoe manufacturer’s oversight.

In June, Clardy repeatedly stomped on the face of a client with his Jordan Nike shoes when the man refused to pay Clardy’s prostitute. The man required stitches and plastic surgery after the beating.

Clardy was sentenced to 100 years in prison for beating the man as well as attacking an 18 year old prostitute so violently that she bled from her ears.

Clardy has been charged with numerous felonies and misdemeanors, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.

The jury in Clardy’s most recent case called him a, “dangerous offender,” and classified his shoes as, “a dangerous weapon,” in order to assure he received the longest prison sentence possible, according to The Oregonian.

Clardy wrote a three-page complaint against Nike from the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution where he is incarcerated, reported The Oregonian.

In the claim he said Nike, “failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction,” by not cautioning that their shoes are, “potentially dangerous.”

The suit has not yet been served to Nike, The Oregonian said.

Nike spokeswoman Mary Remuzzi said the company had no comment regarding the lawsuit.

Really?! I knew heels were a weapon in my late teens without anyone telling me!

I know, Meg, lol! I remember a bouncer making someone remove leather spiked items.

I took off a shoe and told him, I could poke an eye out, if I wanted to.

Anything can be a weapon!

That's for sure. This guy is just nuts. Who is paying for his lawyer, if he's using one? I guess he has nothing better to do with his time now.

Anything can be used as a weapon, you don't even need a shoe to kill a man with your foot.

You don't need a foot to kill a man with a shoe either.

Wait, wut?

Reminds me of the woman who sued Mcdonalds over hot coffee. The stuff people sue for these days just to get money.

IF this ass gets his day in court, all the families of teens who were killed in the 80's or 90's for their sneakers in NY and anywhere else, should be reimbursed because they weren't warned thugs might cut their feet off with machetes for their Nikes either!

Seriously!

You can use an elbow, knee or head, if you can get to the hyoid bone quickly with all your weight.
