Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 1): The plaintiff in this case is nothing more than a two-bit shyster lawyer turned judge who I hope gets tossed out on his ear and then disbarred for filing and following through on a frivolous lawsuit.
Like the D.A. in the Duke Lacrosse Case?
Quoting Cgnnrw (Reply 3): I wonder how long it will be before a similiar plot shows up on the numerous law dramas on TV.
It'll probably be one of the first cases on Boston Legal next season or maybe will be tied in with something on Law & Order (insert show name here).....
I have a feeling this case will be dismissed or he takes a settlement deal. Even though the guy is a lawyer, he's representing himself, and we all know the old saying...........

I'm seeing a combined plotline "ripped from the headlines" where the pants get lost, the lawyer sues the Korean family (or are these folks Chinese? I forget but just follow along) who have a son who goes batshit and shoots up the lawyer before going on a rampage at the local junior college but helives and they try him. His defense is he is insane because of the pants.
Sickening yes but I don't put anything past Law and Order these days after they did the takes on Britney Spears and Anna Nicole Smith in two episodes.
"If you can't delight in the misery of others then you don't deserve to be a college football fan."
If he wins it will set a dangerous precedent. If you entrust someone with something as frivoulous and replacable as a pair of pants and they get lost anyone can go claim $54 million. Can you imagine what would happen to an airline or cargo handling company? They would have insurance against this but the claim payouts will skyrocket. Chapter 11 here comes corporate America.
