The D.C. inspector general is investigating the city office that employed Roy L. Pearson Jr., the administrative law judge whose lawsuit over a pair of pants drew international attention.
The investigation goes beyond the conduct of Pearson, who lost his job this week. The inspector general is focusing on the overall performance of the Office of Administrative Hearings, which handles disputes involving city agencies. Pearson, who served two years on the bench, was one of about 30 judges in the office.
