(Politico) Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and his wife are suing the makers of the exercise band Reid blames for causing him to lose vision in his right eye.
Reid and his wife Landra Gould filed the lawsuit against Hygenic Intangible Property Holding Co, Performance Health LLC, and The Hygenic Corp on Tuesday in Clark County District Court, according to The Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The lawsuit alleges that the companies "combined to create, manufacture and market a defective product called TheraBand or Thera-Band exercise band." The Democratic leader has said the violent January accident with an exercise band is what caused his blindness in his right eye.
