WJLA news reports that Roy Pearson has – somehow – convinced the DC Appellate court to hear his appeal on the now-infamous 54 million dollar pants lawsuit. WJLA was also nice enough to film the amused/aghast reaction of the Chung family as they informed them that this had happened.
The fact that Pearson appealed wouldn’t shock anyone who had heard anything about the case, but it’s somewhat surprising that review was granted. Pearson’s appeal contends that the ruling was inappropriate because it simply substituted a qualified guarantee for an absolute one. OnPointNews hosts the PDF version of the appeal here and it’s surpringly cogent. It also includes a demand for $450,000 in attorney’s fees. For Pearson.
Here’s hoping this has a speedy and permanent resolution.
