- Former Senate leader, 79, injured at home in 2015
- Jury decides Reid did not prove he was using a TheraBand
A jury in Las Vegas flatly rejected a lawsuit brought by the former Democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid against the maker of an exercise band he blamed for injuries, including blindness in one eye, suffered when the device slipped from his grasp and he fell face-first a little more than four years ago.
Reid and his wife, Landra Gould, were not in the courtroom on Friday when the verdict was read. The 79-year-old former Democratic leader used a wheelchair throughout the two-week trial, following treatment for pancreatic cancer and back surgery.
