$54M ‘Pants Suit’ Judge Sues To Get Job Back

From an understanding Associated Press:

Former Judge Who Lost $54M Pants Suit Sues To Get Job Back

May 5, 2008

WASHINGTON — A former judge who lost a $54 million lawsuit against a dry cleaner over a missing pair of pants is suing to get his job back and at least $1 million in damages.

In the suit filed in federal court, Roy Pearson he was wrongfully dismissed for exposing corruption within the Office of Administrative Hearings, the department where he worked. In court documents, Pearson said he was protected as a whistle-blower and that the city used the fact that he was being “vilified in the media” to cut him out of his job.

In a response to a Freedom of Information Act request from The Associated Press, the city’s general counsel wrote that Pearson’s term as an administrative law judge expired in May 2007, and the D.C. Commission on Selection and Tenure of Administrative Law Judges voted not to reappoint him.

So his job has 54 times less worth to him than his pants?

How dare anyone question his judgment?
