The Judge who sued an old Korean couple for $67 million over a pair of lost trousers has now reduced his demand to only $45 million. I guess he’s had a change of heart and thinks $67 million might be a bit too greedy!
This nuisance lawsuit is costing the poor owners thousands of dollars in legal fees. They did offer him as much as $12,000 as compensation towards the loss of his beloved pants, but it looks like Judge Pearson is more interested in harassing them. Since he’s representing himself, it doesn’t cost him a dime to keep pressing ahead with his lawsuit.
The owners have a website and are accepting donations to help defray the cost of this ridiculous lawsuit. If you feel they’ve been unjustly victimized, you can send your donation to the Custom Cleaners Defense Fund.
