Victorious Pants Defendants Have Losses

A lawsuit in DC got a lot of attention -- an administrative law judge sued a dry cleaner for millions of dollars over a problem with a pair of pants. He lost. The Korean couple that owned the dry cleaning business got a lot of support, including fundraisers that covered their attorney's fees. But they have still suffered losses -- they lost a lot of business and suffered a lot of stress. And now they have closed the shop (they still have one other shop). Even litigation that you win can have a high cost. Marc Fisher, Dry Cleaners' Victory in Pants Lawsuit Still Comes With a Loss.
