Should This Judge Be Removed: Part 2

By May 3, 2007Briefly Legal

We have received a lot of blog commentaries on the entry we had yesterday about the administrative law judge in Washington, DC who is suing a drycleaner for $67 million for a lost pair of pants. It’s amazing to think someone like that would be employed by a local government, let alone in the position of a judge where he weighs the scales of justice. His actions are causing grief for a hard-working local business

We were asked if there is a defense fund for the Korean owners of the dry cleaning establishment and indeed there is. Only a handful of DC government officials have the power to can this clown, but many can lend their support to the victims of his greed. If you would like more information, you can contact the attorney for the drycleaners:

Chris Manning
Manning & Sossamon

Thanks to the Washington Post’s Marc Fisher for passing on this information. Marc’s column on the judge’s excesses prompted much of the attention the subject has been receiving.

    Person like Roy Pearson can not be in any public servant position that people are counting on them to be a decent, fair-minded individual.

    I urge all concerned citizens to write Mayor Fenty to voice your concerns about Judge Roy Pearson. There needs to be a clear message sent to him about public servants abusing positions of power. Here is the link:
