Pity the Pants Lawsuit Guy. He’s now bringing his brand of legal crazy to the appeals court. The Legal Times‘ BLT Blog, G-d bless ’em, sifts through the latest filing. They find that Pants Lawsuit Guy now is taking aim at a U.S. District Court Judge. His evidence? Not an incriminating e-mail trail or memo. Not a recorded phone call. It’s a picture:

“Pearson wants the appeals court to take notice of a photograph showing [Judge] Huvelle [who dismissed his lawsuit now on appeal] standing with several Superior Court judges, including Anita Josey-Herring, who is a defendant in Pearson’s suit. Pearson included the photo—taken in May at the annual Law Day Dinner Program hosted by the Washington Bar Association—in his opening brief, filed Jan. 21 in the appeals court.”

In Pants Lawsuit Guy’s view, this photo incriminates both judges. BLT translates his latest filing this way:

“Judge Huvelle’s enthusiastic participation in this smiling, arm-in-arm ‘sisterhood’ photo with defendant Josey-Herring” took place before Huvelle ruled on pending motions in the suit. Pearson said in court papers that Huvelle should have recused from hearing the suit.”
