Shocker: Judge Loses Pants Suit

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:45 am

In the most predictable ruling from any court in recent memory, the judge who brought the $54 million pants suit lost. The judge awarded costs to the dry cleaner — but under our system, could not award attorney’s fees.

UPDATE: Perhaps I spoke too soon. The general “American Rule” is against the awarding of attorney’s fees, but this report in the Washington Post states:

A motion to recover the Chungs’ tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees will be considered later.

Perhaps there is a local rule that allows attorney’s fees to be awarded in specified circumstances. One can only hope.

Thanks to Beldar.
