A judge who lost a $54 million lawsuit against a dry cleaner over a missing pair of pants continues to press his suit. (was that an intended pun?)

The cleaner offered to replace the lost pants with any of his choosing, but judge Roy “Fancypants” Pearon is continuing to press his case. He lost his original law suit challenge, he lost his job, he lost his prestige, but now a court has agreed to hear his appeal.


Jin Nam Chung and Soo Chung, the owners of Custom Cleaners, had hoped Pearson would back off.


The trouble began in 2005 after a pair of Pearson’s pants that he brought to the cleaners went missing. But a week later, the Chungs said the pants had been found and refused to pay. Pearson said those were not his pants and decided to sue.


My comment: $54 million? Give me a break! This man is a retailer’s worst nightmare. He should receive some form of the “Ballbreaker of the Year Statuette” awarded by The Dry Cleaners Association.
