Nike argues for dismissal of lawsuit against board of directors

Attorneys for Nike on Friday argued during a court hearing that a lawsuit against the company's board of directors should be dismissed because it lacks sufficient facts. The lawsuit was the second sweeping lawsuit filed against the sportswear giant in the wake of claims about a toxic workplace. Plaintiffs argued the lawsuit has enough facts to survive Nike's motion to dismiss. A ruling is expected within three weeks.
