Weeping Judge Seeks $54 Million for Lost Pants

Marc Fisher of The Washington Post gives an entertaining account of the trial in which D.C. judge Roy Pearson is suing his dry cleaners for $54 million for losing his pants. The courtroom drama includes a hysterical Pearson crying like a baby and claiming that the loss of his pants was the most “outrageous” event in legal history.I have previously discussed the case, and the lawsuit-generating “consumer protection” law the judge is suing under, here and here.

Here I discuss why this judge can be fired by the D.C. government for his ridiculous lawsuit (he is an administrative law judge, not a federal judge with life tenure).
