Morita proved that metrizability of a $T_0$ space is equivalent to the existence of a sequence of locally finite closed covers which satisfies a refinement condition. We introduce the definition of a cushioned pair-semidevelopment and prove that the existence of a cushioned pair-semidevelopment in a $T_0$ space is equivalent to the metrizability of the space. In addition to Morita's theorem, it is seen that several other well-known metrization theorems are also immediate corollaries to the new theorem.
