From the Paper:

"Andrew Young, a former UN ambassador, was hired by Nike to visit and report conditions in its third-world countries. The report stated that (1) there were no infringements of health and labor codes of conduct and (2) the pay in Nike-controlled factories was substantially higher than the required minimum wage. In 1998 Marc Kasky, a self-styled corporate critic, responded to the conflict between Nike's claims and the content of the report by Earnest and Young filing a lawsuit against Nike "
