$54 million missing pants lawsuit back in Washington, D.C. court
WASHINGTON -- A customer who sued a D.C. dry cleaner for $54 million because of a missing pair of pants is heading back to court.
The D.C. Court of Appeals is scheduled to review the case Wednesday. The lawsuit was first brought against Custom Cleaners more than three years ago by then-administrative law judge Roy Pearson.
Pearson sued the mom-and-pop business for $67 million in 2005 after the cleaners misplaced a pair of his trousers.
He later lowered his demand to $54 million.
The case went to trial last year and a D.C. Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the South Korean immigrant owners, awarding Pearson nothing.
