The case of the $65,000,000 pants has gone to court:

Before trial began yesterday in the case of the D.C. judge who sued his neighborhood dry cleaners after they lost his pants, the most extraordinary fact was Roy Pearson's demand for $65 million in damages.

That was before Pearson, an administrative law judge, broke down while testifying about the emotional pain of having the cleaners give him the wrong pants. It was before an 89-year-old woman in a wheelchair told of being chased out of the cleaners by an angry owner. And it was before she compared the owners of Custom Cleaners in open court to Nazis....

I can't make this stuff up.

That gives a whole new meaning to "Bankrupt my pants!"

In today's followup story, we learn that Hizzoner has reduced his demand to $51.5 million.

Just so you know he's not completely unreasonable or something.
