Some belated justice is coming to Washington, D.C. administrative courts.
The judge who became an international symbol of runaway litigation after he sued a Korean dry cleaners for $54 million over a pair of pants will be notified today that he has been removed from the bench, sources close to the process said late Monday.
The city commission overseeing the case of Administrative Law Judge Roy Pearson voted to give Pearson a letter formally advising him that he will not be reappointed to the bench, ending a protracted review process.
It's over! In the Friday the 13th oh-Jason-is-dead-let's-turn-and-walk-away sense of things.
Pearson, 57, could not be reached for comment. He had earlier hinted that he would sue the District if he were removed.
Someday this will be turned into an HBO miniseries starring Reginald VelJohnson and we can laugh about it.
