    Judge who sued cleaners for $54 million over his missplaced trousers, appeals his losing verdict

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. judge appealed his $54 million (27 million pounds) lawsuit on Tuesday against the dry-cleaning shop that misplaced his trousers, shrugging off legal setbacks and international ridicule.
    Judge Roy Pearson filed a notice of appeal with the District of Columbia Superior Court, indicating that he won't abandon the crusade that has turned him into a symbol of America's lawsuit-happy legal culture.
    Pearson asked his neighbourhood dry cleaners to pay him $1,150 when they misplaced a pair of trousers he brought in for a $10.50 alteration in May 2005. The owners of Custom Cleaners said they located the garment a few days later, but Pearson said the pair they offered him was not his.
    Claiming that the shop's "satisfaction guaranteed" sign misled customers who, like him, were dissatisfied with their experience, Pearson sought $1,500 for every day that Custom Cleaners displayed the sign over a four-year period, multiplied by the three members of the Chung family, who owned the business.
    He also sought $15,000 to rent a car to take his clothes to another cleaner for 10 years.
    The judge hearing the case ruled in June that Pearson did not interpret the sign in a reasonable fashion.
    A sympathetic public donated enough money to pay the Chung's legal fees, estimated at around $85,000.
    Pearson, meanwhile, could lose his job as an administrative judge for the District of Columbia, where he hears disputes involving the decisions of city government agencies.
    The city has warned Pearson it might not reappoint him when his job comes up for review next month, according to The Washington Post.
    Pearson was not immediately available for comment.

    You can find this judge between the screwdriver and the hammer.
    The comment above is my own opinion and does not represent the views or opinions of my employer or any law enforcement agency. It is however the correct opinion and the view of everyone residing in the United States, Canada, Europe, and parts of Australia.

    I voted yes because if he thinks that about a pair of trousers he is obviously not the full packet.

    The saddest part of this farce is that Judge Adam Henry has either a monumental ego or no sense of shame ... any normal human would be too embarrassed to even consider this crap.

    It certainly makes me feel good about the appointed officials that keep D. C. humming along...
    If I wanted people to like me I'd be a fireman.

    Makes you stop and think. What would he do if he spilled a cup of hot coffee on his groin.
    If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

    What's even more stunningly dumfounding...

    The family that owns the dry cleaner ended up recieving enough money from donations to a legal defense fund that they weren't even going to make him pay their legal fees; they just wanted it over and done with.

    And this asshole appealed the decision, instead!

    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)

    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
