Pearson alleges Custom Cleaners in Northeast lost his trousers back in 2005. He filed a lawsuit seeking damages and claiming the city's consumer protection laws were violated. The cleaners said they gave the him the proper pants, but offered the judge a $12,000 settlement anyway. He refused and pressed on with the case, which Chris Manning, attorney for Custom Cleaners, calls, "possibly the most amazing example of frivolous and ridiculous litigation."
$12,000 for pants? More than fair.
