Here's an update on the case of the $54 million pants, which we posted before:
A Washington, D.C., judge Monday threw out a $54 million lawsuit against a dry cleaner accused of losing a pair of trousers. The case got worldwide attention as the worst example in years of unfettered litigiousness, in the view of some lawyers.
"The court rejected a case that clearly had no merits, that was outrageous and ridiculous from the outset," says Bill Schulz of the American Association for Justice, representing trial lawyers.
