Excerpts from the above articles:
" According to court documents, the problem began in May 2005 when Pearson became a judge and brought several suits for alterations to Custom Cleaners in Washington. A pair of pants from one suit was missing when he requested it two days later.
Pearson asked the cleaners for the full price of the suit: more than $1,000.
But a week later, the owners said the pants had been found and refused to pay. Pearson said those were not his pants and decided to sue.
Manning said the cleaners have made three settlement offers to Pearson: $3,000, then $4,600, then $12,000.
But Pearson was not satisfied and expanded his calculations beyond one pair of pants."
"He reached the figure of $US67,292,000, citing Washington's consumer protection law, which provides for damages of $1500 per violation per day. Judge Pearson started multiplying: 12 violations over 1200 days, times three defendants (the Chungs and their son), as well as other claims.
These include $US15,000 to rent a car every weekend for 10 years to drive to a cleaner in another areaemotional damages and $US542,000 in legal fees, although he is representing himself."He also seeks $US500,000 in
