Remember when Harry Reid blinded himself in one eye while using an exercise band a few years back? Anyway, he sued the manufacturer over his injury and just lost a trial when a jury said the company wasn’t liable for the accident:

Apparently, the jury ruled that the company Reid sued wasn’t the actual company that made the exercise band that he injured himself while using:

From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Reid’s family threw out the band after he was hurt. Months later, he and his wife of nearly 60 years, Landra Gould, lodged a product liability lawsuit against three defendants: Hygenic Intangible Property Holding Co., the Hygenic Corp. and Performance Health LLC.
But jurors ruled that the defendants did not manufacture the exercise band involved in Reid’s accident.
