The $54 Million Pants Guy Goes Home with Empty Pockets

81129.jpgOur friend, Judge Roy Pearson, has finally come to the end of his long journey, losing his final appeal in his efforts to mock the legal system.

Roy L. Pearson, the former administrative law judge who sued his dry cleaner for $54 million over a misplaced pair of pants, lost his final appeal in the District’s highest court.
“Appellant failed to establish either that the Chungs’ ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed’ and ‘Same Day Service’ signs constituted false or misleading statements, or that they lost his pants.
“Thus, the judgment for the Chungs on the fraud and CPPA claims was proper. Further, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying appellant’s motions for a jury trial,” says the D.C.’s Court of Appeals ruling.

Damn it. I thought when someone advertised “Satisfaction Guaranteed,” they meant, “If we lose your pants, we owe you $54 million.” Guarantees just don’t mean what they used to, I guess.

Guess he kindof wins; they have exhorbitant legal bills to pay off now. Nothing like bullying the little guy with the law.

I love this story. Just when I think I've heard the last of it, there's yet another installment. We should refer Roy to pants optional taco night.
