Pimp sues Nike for not warning shoes could be dangerous if used to beat people

Quote:
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.

Multnomah County Sheriff's Office

Sirgiorgio Clardy in June 2012.

Sirgiorgio 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.

I knew Nike was an evil corporation.

Total bullshit what the jury did to him. He should probably file an appeal instead of a lawsuit.

I love cases like this. Does it get any better than stomping a johns head in then sueing a shoe company? No. It does not.

More on the story (link):

Quote:
A 26-year-old Portland pimp who repeatedly shouted expletives at the judge, prosecutors and jurors was declared a dangerous offender Friday for, among other crimes, beating a 18-year-old woman he forced to work as a prostitute so badly she bled from her ears.

The designation of Sirgiorgio Sanford Clardy as a dangerous offender called for a prison sentence of up to 300 years, prosecutors said. Multnomah County Circuit Judge Kelly Skye sentenced Clardy to 100 years of prison, with the possibility of release after 36 years -- which would mean he would be in his 60s before he'd have the chance of walking free again.

Clardy appeared in Multnomah County Circuit Court Thursday cuffed to a wheelchair and wearing a mesh bag over his head, a precaution deputies undertook to prevent him from spitting on others. Friday, he refused to put on any clothes before court, and deputies wrapped his body in a suicide smock.

During a two-week trial, a 12-person jury found Clardy guilty of beating the woman; forcing her to work out of motel rooms at the 6th Avenue Motel and the Inn at the Convention Center, just outside downtown Portland; stomping on the face of a john who was trying to skip out on paying, causing the john to get stitches and plastic surgery on his nose; and robbing the john of all of his cash. On Thursday and Friday, the jury determined that Clardy was unlikely to ever be rehabilitated and categorized him as a dangerous offender -- allowing Judge Kelly Skye to lock him up for the rest of his life.

Frank Colistro, a psychologist who interviewed Clardy, said Clardy was in the 100th percentile of narcissistic criminals and he’s 100 percent likely to commit violent crimes again in the next seven years. Colistro said Clardy thinks of himself as smarter, more attractive and superior than everyone else.

”I've evaluated serial murders, serial rapists, and I'm going to tell you very few of those people reach the elevations (scores) we're going to talk about here,” said Colistro, noting his three-decades long career. “People like Mr. Clardy are born bad. It’s not something we can fix. ...That’s why we have prisons.”

Clardy clearly has lived a troubled life. He told jurors he entered foster care when he was six days old, and he was passed between 47 foster homes.

When Clardy was 13, Colistro said, Clardy attacked a foster dad with a baseball bat because he thought the man was verbally abusive. He brought brass knuckles to school, assaulted other classmates and even pulled down a female classmate’s pants and tried to sexually assault her, authorities say.

He also threatened to **** police officers’ wives and children, authorities say.
Clardy has been convicted of 20 felonies in his 26 years -- including his current case, which includes convictions for compelling prostitution, second-degree assault and first-degree robbery.

Colistro, the psychologist, was clear that even though Clardy is an anti-social psychopath, he is not mentally ill.

Clardy, however, disagreed. Loudly and repeatedly.

”I hear voices!” and “Ahhh! I want to kill myself!” Clardy yelled. Skye removed him to another courtroom, where he could watch the court proceedings through a video camera, so his shouting wouldn't be disruptive.

Clardy explained that he believed that because he’s mentally ill and because he had to represent himself, the Oregon Court of Appeals would overturn his conviction and he’d be set free.

Clardy churned through multiple attorneys, until a judge declared that it was not safe for any defense attorney to sit next to Clardy. A judge also ruled that Clardy would have to represent himself, with the help of a defense attorney who would work as a legal adviser. After one of Clardy’s expletive-laden outbursts, Clardy’s current legal adviser, Jonathan Sarre, came close on Thursday to trying to remove himself from the case.

”It’s not worth it to put my safety at risk, for what they’re paying me to do this,” Sarre said.

Skye, the judge, asked Sarre to hold out for just a few more days, and Sarre obliged.
Also, from his booking information, this is a 6'5", 220 lbs dude.

As far as I know, the judge sets the sentence, the jury just give the verdict.

in the news.

I would worry more about him being free this long than about him getting out anytime soon.

"Deputy Peter Walker, who was first at the scene, used a Taser on the suspect multiple times but it had no effect, according to a police statement."

Another man from Oregon it seems, what's going on there?
