Judge Who Sued ($54M) Over Pants Loses Job

From those champions of justice at the Associated Press:

Judge who sued over pants loses job

Wed Nov 14

WASHINGTON – A judge who lost a $54 million lawsuit against his dry cleaner over a pair of missing pants has lost his job, District of Columbia officials said.

Roy Pearson’s term as an administrative law judge expired May 2 and the D.C. Commission on Selection and Tenure of Administrative Law Judges has voted not to reappoint him, Lisa Coleman, the city’s general counsel, wrote Nov. 8 in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from The Associated Press.

Pearson was one of about 30 judges who worked in the Office of Administrative Hearings, which handles disputes involving city agencies. He had held his position for two years…

Well, there is a little justice in the world after all. It even sounds like a fortune cookie: “judge who sues over pants loses job.”

But why was a Freedom of Information Act request required to get this information?

Did Mr. Pearson’s position involve national security?
