The System Works: Crazy Pants Verdict: Zero ($0.00)

The attorney who sought millions for a pair of lost pants rolled a zero in Court. For now it appears the alleged shakedown by this attorney failed.

The owners of Custom Cleaners did not violate the city's Consumer Protection Act by failing to live up to Roy L. Pearson's expectations of the "Satisfaction Guaranteed" sign that was once placed in the store window, District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff ruled. Bartnoff ordered Pearson to pay the court costs of defendants Soo Chung, Jin Nam Chung and Ki Y. Chung.

More later. I hope that the 'costs' will/may include an assessment of fees. Will he lose his ALJ position as well?
