« Holder Memo Calls for Flexibility in Charging, Sentencing | Main | BP Official Resists Defining 'Legitimate' Claim »

Shabash Morton

The judge's pants suit, at least the amount he was seeking, was absurd. Not only did it show a lack of judgment, but also a misguided perception of the entitlements his judicial position allows. Without knowing the history of his judicial career, it is difficult to ascertain the reason(s) for the denied reappointment. The "pants" lawsuit surely did not help.


Pearson is a perfect example of a bad judge.
His attempt to extort millions of dollars from a dry cleaners over a pair of pants is something closer to a badly written work of fiction than something you would expect to see in real life.
It must bring into question every court case he has ever been involved in and raise serious doubts about abuse of legal processes.
