An odd case :)

Happy Saturday all !  How about this for an odd legal case:

Pearson v. Chung

"Better known as the “pants lawsuit”, was a civil case filed in 2005 by Roy L. Pearson, Jr., an administrative law judge in the District of Columbia in the United States.
It came as a result of a dispute with a dry cleaning company over a lost pair of trousers.
Pearson sued for £40million for inconvenience, mental anguish and fees for representing himself, as a result of their failure, in Pearson’s opinion, to live up to a “satisfaction guaranteed” sign that was displayed in the store.
Pearson lost the case but only after after four years of trying every legal avenue to win."

Does "satisfaction guaranteed" = £40 million?  :)
