The Pants Party Is Over, People

In a stunning display of judicial sanity, a Superior Court judge in Washington, D.C. ruled that administrative law judge Roy L. Pearson is not entitled to $67 million from a local laundromat owned by a Korean couple. The lawsuit was filed because Pearson claims the laundromat lost a pair of suit pants he brought in for cleaning, and tried to replace them with another pair that he claims were not his.

To those against tort reform for frivolous lawsuits and outrageous awards, perhaps now you'd be inclined to reconsider your position.

So how big was this case, anyway? According to the article:
The two-day trial earlier this month drew a standing-room-only crowd, including many Korean and international media outlets covering the story. It even overshadowed the drunken driving trial of former Mayor Marion Barry.
Ah, Chocolate City.
