Ethics Complaint Filed Against Judge Over His $65M Suit Against Dry Cleaners


— May 15, 2007

The American Association for Justice, the renamed Association of Trial Lawyers of America, filed an ethics complaint last week against Washington, D.C., administrative law judge Roy Pearson Jr., who’s suing a local dry cleaner for $65 million for losing a pair of his pants. Pearson’s dispute with the cleaners may ring a bell with his ex-wife from whom Pearson sought spousal support a few years ago. The trial judge in that case found that Pearson drove up legal costs with “unnecessary litigation.”
