…and the public perception of lawyers falls another dozen notches

dry-cleaning.jpgRoy Pearson, a Washington DC lawyer, took his pants to the dry cleaners, and now he’s trying to take the dry cleaners to the dry cleaners (that bad joke’s free, but the next one is gonna’ cost you!). A couple of years ago, Custom Cleaners lost some pants Pearson had brought in for a $10.50 alteration. So he did what lawyers do best, and he filed a lawsuit.

The case is set for a June trial, and it should be interesting to see this scumbag in action.

“But Seth,” you say, “he filed a lawsuit because they lost his pants - why does that make him a scumbag?” Well reader, I say, he’s not a scumbag because he’s suing them, per se. He’s a scumbag because he wants … $65 million!

He says he deserves millions for the damages he suffered by not getting his pants back, for his litigation costs, for “mental suffering, inconvenience and discomfort,” for the value of the time he has spent on the lawsuit, for leasing a car every weekend for 10 years and for a replacement suit.

Oh yeah, and he’s not just a scumbag lawyer. This wonderful human being is also a judge!

Go read the story and be amazed at the sheer lunacy.

This bum needs to be disbarred. As a fellow attorney, I am embarrassed. Please follow up on this one!

He is obviously trying to run them out of business to 'teach' them.

Can he make the profession more hated than it already is?

Unfortunately, what hasn't been voiced yet is that this is abuse. That's a-b-u-s-e.

It's abuse of the judicial system, it's abuse of the defendant, it's abuse toward every individual who has tried to get a fair and honest hearing in any court in this country.

Unfortunately, it is also typical of many of the judges and lawyers in this country.
