Roy Pearson Jr., the former administrative law judge who famously sued over a lost pair of pants, is now picking a fight with federal Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle, who tossed Pearson's suit for damages that targeted -- among others -- Washington, D.C., officials and judges. Pearson said in court papers that Huvelle should have recused from hearing the suit, citing Huvelle's "enthusiastic participation" in an "arm-in-arm 'sisterhood' photo" with Superior Court Judge Anita Josey-Herring, who is a defendant in Pearson's suit.
