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.
I have a post up at Hot Air that argues that Hillary Clinton may win in part because people are tired of hearing about all the terrible and sleazy things she’s done in her life:
Hillary has more skeletons in her closet than any other candidate on either side of the aisle. But unlike the scary unknown skeletons in the other candidates’ closets, Hillary’s skeletons are familiar, like old friends.
