Former DC Judge Who Sued Dry Cleaner Over Missing Pants May Face Sanctions

The Washington Post reports that “a former D.C. administrative judge who in 2005 filed a $54 million lawsuit against a dry-cleaning business over a pair of missing pants, becoming a national symbol for frivolous litigation, could face disciplinary action by the D.C. Court of Appeals for alleged misconduct in the case.” Roy L. Pearson Jr., “who for two years worked as an administrative judge with the District’s Office of Administrative Hearings, sued the owners of a Northeast Washington dry cleaner after he claimed the shop lost his trousers when he took them in for alterations.” Pearson “alleged fraud, claiming the cleaners did not honor the ‘satisfaction guarantee’ sign that was displayed in their window.” Following a trial, “a D.C. Superior Court judge ruled against Pearson,” and “on June 3, a three-person hearing committee for the D.C. Board on Professional Responsibility found Pearson committed two ethics violations of interfering with the administration of justice and presenting arguments not supported by facts or law.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
