This article is funny, i mean to sure someone over pants..is stupid.
the cleaners offered $3,000, then $4,600, then $12,000. But Pearson wasn't satisfied and expanded his calculations beyond one pair of pants. (i mean OMG they offered him 12k he should have taken it.)
But the bulk of the $65 million comes from Pearson's strict interpretation of D.C.'s consumer protection law, which fines violators $1,500 per violation, per day. According to court papers, Pearson added up 12 violations over 1,200 days, and then multiplied that by three defendants.
Because Pearson no longer wanted to use his neighborhood dry cleaner, part of his lawsuit calls for $15,000 -- the price to rent a car every weekend for 10 years to go to another business.
Thats the bulk of his argument and is crazy don't you agree.
His interpretation is wacko, he did not suffer any loss due to the pants. No judge should act in such a way as to try to ruin the lives of some simple cleaners..what happend to a judges oath to serve the people?
