"It all began two years ago when Mr. [Roy] Pearson walked into Custom Cleaners, a Northeast D.C. establishment owned by Jin Chung, Soo Chung and Ki Chung. He laid down $10.50 to have a pair of pants altered. The results dissatisfied him: The job wasn't finished on time, and he says the pants he was given were someone else's, which the Chungs deny. He demanded $1,150 for a new suit; the Chungs demurred. So it was off to court, with the claimed damages subject to alterations, in an expansive direction."
"The Chungs offered Pearson $12,000, which he turned down."
However I believe there is another disgrace exposed by this case - abuse of power. The plaintiff is attorney Roy Pearson, who is an Administrative Law Judge in Washington, D.C. So we not only have another Lawyer, but also a Judge tarnishing the image of the legal profession.
So if you're a member of the Bar, I would suggest you clean-up your house before you complain or take offense to attorney/lawyer jokes. General public considers this whole mess a joke.
Is it any wonder that Jokes like this (and the following) are repeated about the Legal Profession - "By the Way Did You Know there are only 3 Lawyer Jokes - All The Rest Are True Stories."
