Nice Pants, Bad Suit

Walter has taken note at Overlawyered.com of former D.C. Administrative Judge Roy Pearson's appeal of his lawsuit against his drycleaners, the Chungs, for misplaced suitpants. Arguments are set for October 22 in the D.C. Court of Appeals. (See this Shopfloor.org post for more.)

Out of idle curiosity we went to the (often-balky) website for the D.C. Superior Court and called up the docket from Pearson v. Chung. Amazing. 15 pages worth, ranging from June 6, 2005 to June 25, 2007. Take a look.

UPDATE: Worth noting the consequences of Pearson's suit against the Chungs as posted at the website of their attorney, Chris Manning: "Sadly, the Chungs were forced to close Custom Cleaners in September 2007 due to the emotional toll and flagging revenues which resulted from Mr. Pearson's lawsuit. The Chungs now operate only one small pick-up dry cleaning store called Happy Cleaners located at 1119 7th Street, NW in Washington, DC."
