The American Association for Justice, the renamed Association of Trial Lawyers of America, filed an ethics complaint last week against Washington, D.C., administrative law judge Roy Pearson Jr., who's suing a local dry cleaner for $65 million for losing a pair of his pants. Pearson's dispute with the cleaners may ring a bell with his ex-wife from whom Pearson sought spousal support a few years ago. The trial judge in that case found that Pearson drove up legal costs with "unnecessary litigation."
