Another Hearing Sought in Missing Pants Case

WASHINGTON (AP) - A former District of Columbia judge who
unsuccessfully sued his dry cleaners for $54 million over a lost
pair of pants isn't giving up.
Roy Pearson has filed a petition with the D.C. Court of Appeals,
requesting the case be reheard - this time by a nine-judge panel.
Pearson claimed Custom Cleaners failed to live up to its promise
of "Satisfaction Guaranteed."
Three appellate judges agreed last month that Pearson failed to
show the store's advertising amounted to fraud and said his
argument defied logic.
In asking for a hearing before the entire court, Pearson argues
the three-judge panel failed to address all the issues in his
appeal.
Pearson did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment
Tuesday. Phone calls to his home went unanswered.
