Pantsless Pearson Presses His Suit

Pantsless Pearson Presses His Suit

DC Judge Roy L. Pearson, Jr. sued a local dry cleaner for $54 million over a lost pair of pants. The grounds for his claim: the family-run business had a sign that read “Satisfaction Guaranteed;” he said that was false advertising. His claim was denied. So was his appeal of the decision.

The lawsuits may have cost Mr. Pearson re-appointment as a District of Columbia Administrative Law Judge.  A lack of judicial temperament was cited in the decision not to re-appoint him to a second ten-year term.

Unsurprisingly, Mr. Pearson sued over this decision in U.S. District Court, a wrongful termination suit. He lost.

Now Mr. Pearson is taking his wrongful termination case to the U.S. Court of Appeals.

His tenacity seems to have served Mr. Pearson well in his early career as a Neighborhood Legal Services Program attorney, but not in his recent endeavors. We respectfully suggest that Mr. Pearson might be better served seeking relief from his physician, not the courts.
