thank god for common sense

the chungs, though recent immigrants from korea, may be unique amongst americans. why? because common sense reigned in the end when they got sued. seriously, did this man think he could get $54 million because the dry cleaners lost his pants? i mean, i suppose the odds are better than, say, powerball. but not much. at least they shouldn't be. this bit is particularly pleasing:

In a 23-page finding of fact, Bartnoff wrote: "A reasonable consumer would not interpret 'Satisfaction Guaranteed' to mean that a merchant is required to satisfy a customer's unreasonable demands or accede to demands that the merchant has reasonable grounds to dispute."
it's nice to know there is still some small measure of justice in the world.

too bad the chungs spent thier lives saviings on their defense. the case should have never been allowed to be filed, much less taken all the way to trial. justice sucks.

i believe the judge was considering having the dumbass pay their legal costs.

The pants were diamond encrusted right?

Because that's the only way any of this would make sense.

apparently, he was very emotionally attached to his pants. and, he was fighting for the common man, who has to bow before the evil, pants-losing forces of korean dry cleaners throughout the DC metro area.

not at all because his divorce nearly bankrupted him. not that at all.
