The case of the $54 million dollar pair of pants

A blog for the trial is here:

So far, we have one witness mimicking an "Asian accent", another witness, an 89-year-old wheelchair-bound WWII female veteran who "was very upset about the suit pants and kept thinking about to "what Hitler did to thousands of Jews."", and the plaintiff breaking down multiple times while talking about his "community service, his weight gain as a middle-aged man, his financial woes and his painful divorce". Oh, and his pants.

In case you're not aware, the plaintiff is a judge.
I can't believe these obnoxious Michigan students, who use the board not to share information, but to socialize (as pathetic as that is)
