Advocare and Jessica Hardy File Lawsuits

"JESSICA Hardy, who tested positive during last summer's U.S. Olympic Trials in swimming for a banned substance, has filed suit against a Texas-based supplement maker, claiming products that it had made and she had taken were tainted.

Hardy, who tested positive at the Trials for the banned stimulant clenbuterol, filed the lawsuit last week in Los Angeles Superior Court against Carrollton, Texas-based AdvoCare International, seeking unspecified damages. UniversalSports.com on Thursday obtained a copy of the lawsuit.

The 21-year-old Hardy would have been a medal contender in Beijing in two individual events as well as in at least one, maybe two, relays. Instead, as the lawsuit relates, she stayed home, hit with a two-year doping-related suspension, deprived of "once-in-a-lifetime opportunities" while weighing "damage to her reputation." "
