NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 24, 2018--Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into NIKE, Inc. (NYSE: NKE).

On August 9, 2018, former employees of NIKE filed a class action lawsuit in federal court against the Company based on a pattern of sexual harassment and discrimination wherein women were “devalued and demeaned” and that their “career trajectories are blunted because they are marginalized and passed over for promotions” with “lower salaries, smaller bonuses, and fewer stock options” than their male counterparts. Further, the lawsuit charges that the Company “avoided taking any meaningful corrective or preventive actions” in response to numerous complaints of “hostility and sexual harassment” reported to managers and human resources.

KSF’s investigation is focusing on whether NIKE’s officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to NIKE’s shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
