Judge to Appeal $54 Million Lawsuit Against Neighborhood Dry Cleaners Over Missing Pants
From the Washington Post: The $54 Million Pants Suit That Wouldn't Die, by Mark Fisher:
He's baaaa-ack: Roy Pearson, the D.C. administrative law judge who filed, fought and lost a $54 million lawsuit against the Korean immigrants who own his neighborhood dry cleaners, chose the Fourth of July holiday to make it clear that he will not be going away. Despite a clear finding by D.C. Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff that Pearson's case against Custom Cleaners had no merit and that the cleaners' possible misplacing of a pair of Pearson's pants was not worth a penny to the plaintiff, Pearson is back. He wrote to defense lawyer Christopher Manning this week to let the Chung family know that Pearson plans to file today a motion arguing that Bartnoff failed to address Pearson's legal claims and asking the judge to reverse her verdict in the case.

Why hasn't he been disbarred, nailed for filing a frivolous suit, jailed for contempt, adjudicated insane, placed in an institution, given electroshock therapy and fed into a logchipper to fertilize a pretty garden?
Has America sunk so far?
