« D.C. Court of Appeals Suspends Ex-Pillsbury Associate | Main | ABA Files Suit Against FTC Over Applying Red Flags Rule to Lawyers »

i concede that Mr. Roy Pearson, Jr., an Officer of the Court, has overstayed his welcome to many people.
but one has to give him high marks for staying power; that is, respect his bovine obstinacy and raw dogged persistence.
this man truly believes that he's right, that he's been wronged, and that he's entitled to judicial redress.
i say, he has a right to test the hierarchy of the legal system; so, let the soap opera continue ...!

Roy Pearson Jr. essentially bankrupted a law-abiding small business. And he continues to waste taxpayers' money hand over fist (in the form of court resources) with a string of failed appeals regarding his previous probationary employment as an administrative law judge with the District of Columbia.

D.C. law is clear about the qualifications for its ALJs. Not surprisingly, one such requirement is an appropriate "judicial temperament." Mr. Pearson's multiyear, mulitmillion-dollar "personal vendetta" against a family-owned dry cleaners he'd already extorted once before makes clear to everyone who isn't a pyscho that he sorely lacks the recquisite judicial temperament and thus has no further claim on our tax dollars by way of continued employment.

He should go look for a low-stress job of some sort -- perhaps linen-folding at the St. E's laundray facility -- and stop bothering people.

Well, he's not a quitter.
