A Washington, D.C. judge took his pants to get dry-cleaned at a family-owned business called Custom Cleaners. According to him, they never returned the correct pair of pants, and betrayed the "satisfaction guaranteed" sign in their store. This served as enough reason to sue the business for 67 million dollars for losing his pants a.k.a. the most expensive pants in the history of pants.

Lawsuit language has never sounded so beautiful. Roy Pearson, the offended pants-man, passionately describes his mental suffering, inconvenience, and discomfort at the hands of a business where "never before in recorded history have a group of defendants engaged in such misleading and unfair business practices" to the judge. Basically, life without pants has been hell.
