In rare display of common sense, city votes to not reappoint judge in $54 million pants lawsuit

Sources: Judge in $54M Pants Case to Lose Job

AN ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE who drew national attention for his $54 million lawsuit against a local dry cleaner could soon be getting his ticket to unemployment.
A city commission on Monday voted against reappointing Roy L. Pearson Jr. to sit on bench at the Office of Administrative Hearings, a court that rules on cases involving D.C. agencies, The Post's Keith L. Alexander reports.
Writes Alexander:
The commission's discussions are not public. Sources familiar with the deliberations said the panel hasn't drafted a letter formally notifying Pearson of its decision. Until that is done, the sources said, the decision is not final. The letter could be sent early next week, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case.Pearson, pictured above, filed suit after the owners of Custom Cleaners in Northeast Washington allegedly lost a pair of pants he brought in for alterations. The case ended with a D.C. Superior Court judge's ruling in the cleaners' favor. Pearson later indicated he would appeal.
and the karma wheel spins once more. isnt this just wonderful. this guy, more than most, should know how frivolous cases tie up the court system.
i've read that judges are like diapers...they should be changed periodically and for the same reason........

Wow, I am amazed that common sense or something prevailed. I am still amazed that he had the audacity to file such a ridiculous lawsuit.
