Judges Gone Wild

Here's the sad, sad conclusion of DC Administrative Law Judge Roy (as in "destroy") Peterson's failed foray into consumer protection:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The owners of a dry cleaner who were sued for $54 million over a missing pair of pants have closed and sold the shop involved in the dispute, their attorney said Wednesday.

The South Korean immigrants are citing a loss of revenue and the emotional strain of defending the lawsuit. They will focus their energy on another dry-cleaning shop they still own, said their attorney, Chris Manning.

"This is a truly tragic example of how devastating frivolous litigation can be to the American people and to small businesses," Manning said in a statement.

As Mark Steyn comments the the Corner:
The only way this is going to end is if John Edwards is elected President and one of the two Americas launches a class action suit against him for losing the Coatless Girl's coat.
