Dry Cleaner Wins $67 Million Lost Pants Case

Administrative Law Judge Roy Pearson's bogus $67 million lawsuit against his dry cleaner for losing a pair of trousers has ended in defeat. In fairness to Pearson, he had reduced his initial greedy $67 million demand to a mere $54 million. Washington D.C. Superior Judge Judith Bartnoff ruled that the owners of Custom Cleaners did not violate the city's consumer protection law by failing to live up to what Pearson claimed was his expectation of the "satisfaction guaranteed" sign in the store's window. Bartnoff ordered that Pearson pay the dry cleaner's court costs, and he will consider the dry cleaner's motion to recover his attorney's fees.
