For crying out loud – this is what’s wrong with the US legal system. A former judge is suing for a pair of pants lost by his dry cleaner, not really about the pants but more their promise of guaranteed satisfaction.
“This is not a case about a pair of suit pants,” Roy Pearson argued before the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. Rather, it is about whether the owners of a neighborhood business misled consumers with a sign that claimed “Satisfaction Guaranteed,” he said.
“There is an unconditional guarantee,” he argued, unless the merchant indicates otherwise.
Pearson said that the sign was deceptive and that the burden was on owners Jin Nam Chung and Soo Chung to explain whether the promise came with restrictions.
Not only that, if he loses his appeal, he could seek to have his case heard by the Supreme Court. What a great use of the top legal minds in our country.
