Verdict In In $54 Million Missing Pants Lawsuit

In April we wrote THIS POST about a lawyer who some thought was a real sew-and-sew but definitely not a slacker for filing a $54 million lawsuit against the dry cleaner who lost the lawyer’s (who is actually a federal adminstrative law judge) pants.

Readers got a rise out of the story and were panting to learn the outcome.

The verdict has now been handed down and you should go to THIS LINK to read the definitive word and thoughts about it.

Clearly, the judge found the pants suit unseamly.

P.S. The defendent did not pleat bargain.

    Oh gawd, that’s about all of the word-play a person can handle in one day!

    Doctor! Common is still breathing! Inform Mrs. Sense immediately!

    I was just wondering if anyone has seen the briefs in this case?

    Sorry, Lynx, I couldn’t resist.

    Glad to hear this case has been ironed out.

    Yeah, I’m glad we can hang it up now and get on to more pressing issues.

    The report I read said the plaintiff was ordered to pay the defendant’s court expenses/fees.
    IMO, lawyers’ fees should be paid as well, but I haven’t seen anything definite regarding that huge expense.

    It would be so unfair if the dry cleaner were stuck with those bills, and justice remained incomplete – and hideously expensive.

    As you are undoubtedly aware, a $54 million lawsuit was recently brought in DC District Court against a small neighborhood drycleaners over a pair of alleged lost trousers. While the Court found resoundingly in favor of the business owners, Jin and Soo Chung, their ordeal is not yet over—they have drained their saving accounts contesting this frivolous lawsuit, and they have racked up over $100,000 in legal expenses.

    In order to help the Chungs defray their legal bills, ILR and the American Tort Reform Association are co-hosting a fundraiser on Tuesday evening, July 24 at 6 p.m. at the US Chamber Building in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, businesses large and small across America must deal every day with similar extortionist tactics from some plaintiffs’ lawyers. The collective outcome is not justice, but lost jobs, ruined businesses and billions of dollars in lost economic opportunity.
