Suing the Pants Off Them

An extremely litigious lawyer is suing his dry cleaner for losing a pair of his trousers. The damages he’s claiming? $65 million. While the suit is obviously absurd, Izzy has had so many bad experiences with dry cleaners—including shirts that came back dirtier than they went it—that he can find some sympathy for the plaintiff. Just not $65 millions worth.

    Yes, it’s a ridiculous case. But the sheer magnitude of bad faith displayed in this suit is an excellent illustration of the competence of some ALJs in this country.

    I love my dry cleaner. Been using him for almost 4 years, since I moved here. I guess I’m lucky…
