Harry Reid Loses Suit Against Exercise Band Maker

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

A Las Vegas jury rejected former U.S. Sen Harry Reid’s claims in a civil case against the makers of a resistance exercise band after about an hour of deliberations Friday. Reid was injured while using an exercise band and blamed the injuries for ending his political career.

According to Reid’s lawsuit, with losing vision in his right eye, he suffered a concussion, broken orbital bones, severe disfigurement to his face, bruising and lacerations on his face, hand injuries, scarring and broken ribs.

About two months after his injury, Reid, who was Senate minority leader at the time, announced that he would not seek re-election. He had served in the Senate since 1987.
