This is awesome. I'm glad that guy paid the price for demonstrating his vindictive streak and his contempt for the purpose of the legal system.

He is right back to where he started. He was unemployed before he got the appointment, and now unemployed again, can't imagine a law firm willing to hire this guy.

He will just probably go into private practice now and make far more money that he made as a judge, but he will now have to work hard for his money by putting in long hours instead of just sitting on his butt acting like god in his 40 hour a week federal job.

To bad he didn’t lose his law license, if I was the owner of the cleaners, I would have filed a complaint with the state bar association against him.

I don't know. It sounds like this guy is a shark. A complete douchebag, but a shark nonetheless. Plus, lawyers aren't always considered the most scrupulous of professionals. He might be able to get something yet.

I still think he's a douche!

I believe he has crossed the line into douchenozzle status. The business end of the douche is a far worse thing to be than the bag.  Wink

This guy's been the laughingstock of the news here in DC for quite a while now... What's interesting, is the cleaners he sued actually saw an increase in business as a result. Sadly, though, it wasn't enough to pay the legal bills, and they were forced to close. Sad

That angers me beyond belief. Don't most courts require the reimbursement of legal fees in such a case? Really quite a shame to see the American Dream of these people cut short by this schmuck.

I agree! They should be awarded their legal costs! (I think they were in this case).

What's a person, or business to do to protect themselves from people like the captioned douchebag? Will someone need to invent 'frivilous lawsuit insurance'?

How sad for these business owners. The article at the top said the cleaners refused to pay for the trousers, but I seem to remember that after they realized their "mistake", the genuinely offered to make it right with a very generous gesture.

There really are some crappy people in this world. I've trying to think of just ONE reason that would make douchebag think, "Hey. I think suing these people is good idea! Better yet, I'm going to sue them for a complete outrageous sum! Oh, this is a good idea. Yes, indeed, I'm on the right track with this one."

Argh.

If FOX News is correct, the couple will have their legal costs covered, but not their attorney fees.

Can you explain that? I'd have thought that was part of their legal costs?  Confused

Actually, no I can't. I'm not that familiar with the American legal system.
Here's another YouTube link with more details though. The presenters say something about attorney costs being over USD $10,000. I have no idea what the court costs would be.

Fair enough. We'll wait for someone to tell us both, then.  Wink

This fool was an Administrative Law Judge in a Federal Agency with a set term of service. That position isn't the same as a full Federal Judge or Magistrate Judge, who are appointed for life and can only leave by their death, resigning, found guilty of a crime or Impeached by the Congress/Senate.
I do agree that his misuse of the civil court system is beyond any reason. He apparently had been subject to sanctions (like a fine, usually not for than $10,000 and paid to the court). I remember a junior partner of a past law firm I worked at who also got sanctions of similar amount and her reputation shot. This jerk, having been subject as a judge and a lawyer to a major sanction means a serious and unethical behavior that can also lead to further sanctions, including suspension of his law license. At the least, his reputation is pretty much shot and it will be very difficult to practice law. Most judges he may appear before in the future will be extremely difficult with him due to his abuses of the court system.

Sure he will. He's a law firm's wet dream. He's sue-happy. So are most lawyers. It isn't about law or justice anymore, it's about making someone believe someone else is at fault for their lot in life, and to sue someone to make a fortune. It's the New American Dream.
