Will the case of the missing pants be taken to the Supremes?

pantsA former administrative law judge who wanted to sue the pants off a local dry cleaners for allegedly losing his trousers has lost an appeal in the case.

Today the D.C. Court of Appeals rejected a bid by Roy L. Pearson Jr. to revive a $54 million lawsuit he filed, claiming that the cleaners breached their “satisfaction guaranteed” promise when his suit pants went missing.

A three-judge panel of the court rejected Pearson’s request for a new trial. Now his only options are to ask for an en banc review by the entire court, or file a petition for certiorari from the U.S. Supreme Court. Neither would be all that surprising, given Pearson’s tenacity thus far.
