Infamous “Missing Pants Lawsuit” Plaintiff Faces Legal Ethics Charges

The former Washington, D.C. administrative law judge who filed the now-infamous $54 million lawsuit against his dry cleaners for a lost pair of pants is now “facing legal ethics charges” over that lawsuit, reports the National Law Journal.

The ethics charges were filed against Roy Pearson, Jr. in April 2015 — more than six and a half years after the lawsuit against his dry cleaners ended. On June 3, a committee of the D.C. Board of Professional Responsibility found Pearson committed two ethics violations and “recommended a suspension of 30 days, stayed in favor of two years probation,” reports the National Law Journal.

ILR’s Faces of Lawsuit Abuse campaign featured a video about the “missing pants lawsuit” back in 2007 and held a fundraiser that raised more than $64,000 to help the dry cleaners with their legal bills.
