While we’re busy bashing the Supreme Court, let’s take a look at someone far worse: Judge Roy Pearson, the nut who filed the $54 million lawsuit against a dry cleaners because they lost a pair of his pants. His case has rightly been dismissed and he has been ordered to pay court costs and, hopefully, legal bills for the defendants as well. As if the suit itself wasn’t bad enough, look at his courtroom claims:
In his opening statement, Pearson came out swinging, telling the court, “Never before in recorded history have a group of defendants engaged in such misleading and unfair business practices.”
I’ll take ridiculous hyperbole for $1000, Alex. Worse yet was his behavior:
He became visibly emotional when he reached the point in the story in which he recounted a confrontation with Soo Chung from the dry cleaning store.
“These are not my pants,” he testified, and said he told her, “I have in my adult life, with one exception, never worn pants with cuffs.”
Pearson testified that Chung insisted, saying, “These are your pants.”
Pearson then rushed from the courtroom, overcome with emotion.
The next motion to be filed should be for a mental competency hearing for Mr. Pearson.
