The $54 million dollar pants guy

Roy Pearson. Remember him? He’s the administrative law judge who brought a $54 million dollar suit against a dry cleaners because they allegedly lost his pants.  After a lengthy and expensive trial, the court found in favor of the cleaners.

I was really impressed by the Chungs, who expressed a desire to get on with their lives and not dwell on the lawsuit.  They even said they would take Pearson back as a client.  And although they could have forced him to pay their legal fees, they declined to do so as a fund  had been established that covered the majority of the costs.

Now the Court of Appeals has agreed to hear his case.

Maybe the court should watch this video.

  1. Wow, powerful video. Beautiful people. I remember that lawsuit, and this portrait really does bring to life the harm of such lawsuits. All I can say is thank you for bringing it to my attention.
