$54,000,000 pants makes me mad. It should make you mad. With all the BS spewed about increasing medical malpractice frivolous suits, real frivolous suits should make you mad too. So make a difference and make it loud.
At a time when SCOTUS is pissing away reason concerning free speech, religion and campaign finance cases, a new judicial plague is a foot; actually, it's a single judge as plague manifest: Roy L. Pearson, Jr. You've probably heard, but here's a brief synopsis:
- Roy takes suits to Custom Cleaners, owned by Ki, Jin and Soo Chung
- Roy picks up suits, notices pants are missing from one suit
- Roy wants $1,000 for the suit
- Chungs say "no"
- Roy sues for $67,000,000
- Chungs try to settle for $12,000
- Roy says "no," eventually bumps down suit to $54,000,000
- Court says Roy's a choad
- Choad appeals

Now, if CNN would just shut the hell up about the idiots suing the TB patient (with no actual damages), we might just have some real news.
