Sometimes Common Sense Wins

From Fox...

A judge ruled Monday in favor of a dry cleaner that was sued for $54 million over a missing pair of pants.
The owners of
Custom Cleaners did not violate the city's Consumer Protection Act by failing to live up to Roy L. Pearson's expectations of the "Satisfaction Guaranteed" sign that was once placed in the store window, District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff ruled.
Bartnoff ordered Pearson to pay the court costs of defendants Soo Chung, Jin Nam Chung and Ki Y. Chung.

Roy L. Pearson, the judge who sued the cleaners said they needed to pay for a rental car for him for the next ten years so he could get to another cleaners amoung other ridiculous requests. Additionally the cleaners first offered him $3,000, then $12,000 to get him to drop the case against them. All over a lost pair of pants. Turns out he had massive credit card debt etc... Nice to see that the court slapped him down. Additionally it has now been recomended that he not be reappointed to another term as judge. Sounds like some people in Washington DC have common sense.....too bad more of them aren't in congress. ;)
