Roy Pearson, an administrative law judge who has filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against his dry cleaner, leaves the courthouse after attending, dry cleaning in hand, the trial at D.C. Superior Court in Washington June 12. Pearson, representing himself, alleges that Jin Chung, Soo Chung and Ki Chung, owners of the mom-and-pop business, committed fraud and misled consumers with signs, since removed, that claimed "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and "Same Day Service."
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A judge ruled Monday in favor of a dry cleaner that was sued for $54 million over a missing pair of pants.

The owners of Custom Cleaners did not violate the city's Consumer Protection Act by failing to live up to Roy L. Pearson's expectations of the "Satisfaction Guaranteed" sign that was once placed in the store window, District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff ruled.

Bartnoff ordered Pearson to pay the court costs of defendants Soo Chung, Jin Nam Chung and Ki Y. Chung.
