Nice Pants Go Appealing

This guy just doesn't know when to quit.

Remember Roy Pearson, the DC administrative judge who sued a dry cleaner for losing his pants, seeking $54 million in damages? He lost, of course, and became a national laughing stock, to boot. The couple that owned the dry cleaners extended a post-judgment olive branch, offering to drop their attempts to get Pearson to pay their attorney's fees in order to close the books once and for all.

No deal.

Not only did Pearson reject that more than reasonable offer, he's filed a notice of appeal in the case. You'd think that someone who was laughed out of court and in danger of losing his job because of his shenanigans would come to the conclusion that discretion is the better part of valor. Guess not.
