The $54 million pair of pants gave rise to global outrage and demands again for litigation reform. Paul Rothstein, a Georgetown University law professor, said "This case was giving American justice a black eye around the world, and it was all the more upsetting because it was a judge and lawyer who were bringing the suit." Then Rothstein said after the court ruled that the ruling "restores one's confidence in the legal system." No, it hasnâ€™t. Yeah, a judge ruled in favor of the South Korean dry cleaner who was sued by a wacko for $54 million over an alleged missing pair of pants. Yeah, this Judge Bartnoff ordered said wacko; one administrative law Judge Pearson, to pay the court costs of the Korean dry cleaner defendants. According to the defendant' attorney, Chris Manning, the fees were a bit more than $1,000. But what about the $100,000 plus in attorney fees?! A motion to recover the attorney fees will be considered later according to the papers. So tell, me, how does that "restore one's confidence in the legal system"?
The defendantsâ€™ attorney, said "Judge Bartnoff has spoken loudly in suggesting that, while consumers should be protected, abusive lawsuits like this will not be tolerated," Manning said in a statement. "Judge Bartnoff has chosen commonsense and reasonableness over irrationality and unbridled venom." Ya think! These types of lawsuits are legal terrorism. They are successfully used by bullies who lie to abuse weaker defendants. The Korean dry cleanersâ€™ owners said â€œthe trial exacted an enormous financial and emotional toll on them and exposed them to widespread ridicule. â€œ The owners of the Korean Dry Cleaners should get their $100,000 plus in attorney fees back. The wacko administrative law judge who sued them, should be ordered to also pay an amount equal to their attorney fees and costs, serve 30 days in jail, and get six years probation as his punishment. This wacko was his own cold-blooded gun for hire. He is the same as the three thugs Crazy Loveâ€™s Burt Pagich hired to throw lye in the face of Linda when she found out about his double life and also dumped him. That sort of punishment will hold these legal terrorists accountable for when they file such frivolous lawsuits. Others will then think twice before abusing the court system for such evil and expensive attacks.
