Ex-Judge Won't Drop $54M Pants Lawsuit

A former judge who unsuccessfully sued his dry cleaners for $54 million over a lost pair of pants isn't giving up.

Roy Pearson has filed a petition with the D.C. Court of Appeals, requesting the case be reheard - this time by a nine-judge panel.

Pearson claimed Custom Cleaners failed to live up to its promise of "Satisfaction Guaranteed."

Three appellate judges agreed last month that Pearson failed to show the store's advertising amounted to fraud and said his argument defied logic.

In asking for a hearing before the entire court, Pearson, a former District administrative law judge argues the three-judge panel failed to address all the issues in his appeal.

Pearson also argued that he was denied access to having his case heard by a jury, reported the Washington Post.

Pearson did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment Tuesday. Phone calls to his home went unanswered.
