Excerpts from the above articles:

" A customer got so steamed when a dry cleaner lost his trousers that he sued for $65 million (U.S.). Two years later, he is still pressing his suit."

"
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 area because he no longer wanted to use his local dry cleaner. He also seeks $US500,000 in emotional damages and $US542,000 in legal fees, although he is representing himself."


Things like this make you go WTF???

Emotional damages for losing a pair of pants?? Legal fees even though he's representing himself, is that even allowed??? And all this isnt even for a large corporation, is jus 2 chiney ppl a do a likkle ting.

The stuff sicks my stomach. The worse part is not that he is doing it, but that he is even allowed to do it. a land of utter rubbish.

In a fair world, he'd be the one sued for such ludicrous behaviour. But it isn't a fair world. A family friend warned me once that when I go to the US I mustn't even stare people in the face as they may sue for sexual harrassment... Sad.
