Magic Pants Guy Loses; Consumers Win

It was not unexpected, of course. But the magic pants guy has lost his lawsuit against the dry cleaners in Washington DC.

As noted earlier, magic pants guy sued the dry cleaner because they misplaced his pants. The court found for the dry cleaners, Custom Cleaners. Looks like the magic pants guy won't collect the requested $54 million. The trial court reportedly awarded the dry cleaners their court costs. Link here:

The case demonstrates some important truths. Judges don't lightly tolerate abuse of the civil justice system. Magic pants guy had no business bringing this case and surely should be the subject of scorn for seeking $54 million for the lost pants. This clown works as an administrative law judge, which is to say that he should know better.

So for those who criticize the civil justice system, let's all remember this case. Because the system worked as it should, and the clown got shut down.
