The infamous pants suit isn’t going away, but Custom Cleaners, the dry cleaning business in Northeast where the Chung family may or may not have misplaced Judge Roy Pearson’s pants, is changing hands.
In a press release this morning, Christopher Manning, the attorney who represents the Chungs, announced the store has been sold “due to the revenue losses and emotional toll resulting from the Pearson v. Chung lawsuit.”
It was the second store the Chungs have closed since Pearson filed his $54 million lawsuit. Pearson lost the case in June but has filed an appeal. The Chungs will continue to run Happy Cleaners on 7th Street NW, according to the press release.
