    I think this guy is a tort reform advocate trying to play up the public. Convince everybody that all lawsuits are ridiculous, reform bill passes, people with genuine damages are SOL.

    It's dishonest at best, sickening at worst.

    NOW FOR FUNNY RESPONSE:

    So he lost his favourite trousers, who cares? I mean, the guy could be NAKED under those robes for his first day on the bench. That's what I'D do.

    I saw that this morning. I am usually not one to encourage lawsuits. But I hope there is a hefty couter suit against this jackass for wasting time and being an overall asshole.


    I can't beleive the guy is an F'ing judge.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Ferret were right in his analysis of the situation.

    Which is a really jacked up thing to do.


    What might be worse is that the guy might actually think he's entitled to $67 million dollars based on a twisting of the law.

    What that guy is doing is sickening. It's scary that he's a judge now, he should get disbarred for this bullshit.

    I'm wondering if Ferret's on to something as well.

    But it's entirely possible the guy is just batshit insane also. The sorta person you know who always talks about suing people for this or that--only he actually can. Based on my experience with DC's local government, I have no problem believing this.

    I hope like hell there's an ethics hearing in his near future. If nothing else, his willingness to try and destroy a family's livelihood over something so petty is disgusting.

    Secondly,

    He's a judge. Hellooooo. Nobody can see your God damn pants anyway. Between the bench and your stupid robe, you don't even have to wear pants. Who the fuck cares you didn't get to wear the ones you wanted? Jesus.

    Well, to argue semantics, I see judges in their everyday clothes all the time at a lot of our meetings, in their chambers, etc. Basically whenever we interact with them outside of the courtroom.

    But yeah, still, stupid argument on this guy's part.

    Those must be some really nice pants.


    My wife had to go to court a few years ago for a minor traffic incident. It was around Christmas and the courtroom was hot for some reason. The judge had removed her robe and was wearing one of those appliquè beaded Christmas sweatshirts like what a Grandmother wears to Christmas parties or the mall.

    It was very difficult to take her judicial authority seriously because of the beaded sparkly Rudolph and Poinsettia flower on her shirt. I know it was just traffic court, but still.

    Well if he does then I'm putting my trousers into the Dry Cleaners and claming they lost them to sue then for $67 Million.

    And didn't you get the pun?
