Korean Dry Cleaner Wins Appeal over Lost Pants

Korea Times, Posted: Dec 19, 2008

A Korean dry cleaner sued by a judge for $54 million over a lost pair of pants has won the appeal, Korea Times reported. The D.C. Court of Appeals on Dec. 18 rejected a request for a new trial from Roy L. Pearson, a former District of Columbia administrative judge.

Pearson had argued in his previous lawsuit that Custom Cleaners, the Korean-owned dry cleaner, failed to live up to its promise of "Satisfaction Guaranteed" when it lost Pearsons pair of pants, and demanded a multi-million dollar compensation. A lower court in D.C. in 2007 denied Pearson's claim.

Jin Chung, the dry cleaners owner, told the newspaper that his family is extremely happy with the appellate court's decision, and hoped that Pearson won't take any further action.
