Roy Pearson isn't giving up his legal battle against the dry cleaning business he claims lost his pants. Late last night he asked the judge who ruled against him to reconsider his $54 million lawsuit.

Pearson filed court papers urging D.C. Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff to take another look at his case against Custom Cleaners. Bartnoff rejected the claims in a ruling June 25 , saying Pearson had not shown that the Northeast Washington shop violated the city's consumer protection laws.

Pearson's filing said that Bartnoff should have placed more significance on the "Satisfaction Guaranteed" sign that had been posted at the store. The business's owners, Soo and Jin Chung, are asking Bartnoff to order Pearson to pay $83,000 in their legal fees.

Pearson, an administrative law judge, can still take the matter to the D.C. Court of Appeals.
