How Nike responded to accusations

On Apr. 23, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Kasky v. Nike, a suit claiming that the Beaverton (Ore.) footwear giant's public-relations efforts misled consumers about abusive working conditions at the overseas factories that produce its shoes. In 1997, Nike hired Andrew Young, the former U.N. Ambassador, to evaluate 12 factories that make its sneakers, mostly in Asia and he came back with nothing to tell .
