Disbar Him  
Per The Washington Post, a DC administrative judge is suing his former dry cleaners for $65 million over a lost-but-found-one-week-later $1,000 suit.  The cleaners offered to settle the claim 3 times (the last offer was $12,600--for a $1,000 suit).  The judge asserts consumer fraud based on the cleaners' inability to comply with two warranties displayed to their customers:  "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and "Same Day Service."  So, $64.8 million of the $65 million claim is due to the cleaners allegedly violating a DC consumer protection law for 1,200 days (3.28 years).   The judge also claims his constitutional rights were violated because he rented a car for 10 years (yes, you read that right) to go to another dry cleaning business.  Hence, he wants the cleaners to reimburse him $15,000 in car rental fees.  The trial date is June 11.

Let.  It.  Go.  Judge, is the satisfaction of your ego really worth the time and energy to file a claim over a suit for which I'm sure you had no problem replacing and the possibility of losing your job and law license?
