DC dry cleaning lawsuit

If you’ve seen the news about the Washington, D.C. judge who’s suing a family dry cleaner for $54 million for a lost (then found) pair of pants — I just don’t even know where to begin with this — you might like to know that there’s a legal defense fund.

What a shameful day for the District of Columbia. I hope the plaintiff gets his — ahem! — hat handed to him on a platter.

  1. Why is the sitting judge even hearing this case. He/She should have thrown it out.
    The defendent should be awarded court cost and this so called judge (Pearson ) should be thrown off the bench.

  2. If he loses this suit he will go trolling for another one. He is in a divorce and bitter. If I were a dry cleaner I would post his picture in the back and a sign in the front saying, “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.”

  3. My dry cleaner in a Sydney suburb lost my pair of trousers about a year ago. She wanted to pay me the purchase price of trousers in full. Since my pair of trousers, bought in Milan was an old one. I gave her 25% discount and accepted $83. How on earth this Mr. Pearson of Washington DC can be so greedy!
