David 1, Goliath 0: Nike Has Dropped Its Lawsuit Against Boris Berian
May 20, 2016 to June 28, 2016
Berian is now free to run for whomever he pleases at the 2016 US Olympic Trials.
June 23, 2016
Nike has dropped its lawsuit against Boris Berian.
LetsRun.com recently received a call from Merhawi Kefelzighi, Berian’s agent who said, “We have received notice of the dismissal and will have more to say in the next few days.” Keflizighi also indicated that the lawsuit wasn’t dropped because the two sides had reached an agreement. Boris can run for New Balance or whomever he pleases in the upcoming Olympic Trials. We then asked how Berian was doing, “Boris is doing well.”
Technically, Nike could still re-file the lawsuit within 2 years but that’s almost certainly not going to happen.
