Tort “Reform” Poster Boy Presses On

Roy Pearson, the soon-to-be-former D.C. Administrative law judge who sued a family dry cleaning business for millions over a pair of pants and lost spectacularly, filed a notice of appeal yesterday. A day earlier the dry cleaners withdrew their motion to recover some $83,000 in attorney fees and litigation expenses. The cleaners said they’d received enough in private donations to cover their costs and implored Pearson to let things lie. Pearson’s response — initiating an appeal — is the latest in a series of idiotic moves that includes rejection of multiple pretrial settlement offers ranging up to $12,000.
