Supreme Court won't reinstate case of man who went missing

Law Firm News Posted on

Bobby Chen's legal luck has finally run out. The Supreme Court on Monday refused to reinstate Chen's appeal in a legal dispute with the city of Baltimore.

Chen beat long odds last year when he convinced the court — without the help of an attorney — to hear his case. But then he disappeared for two months and court officials couldn't reach him. The court dismissed the case last month after he missed a filing deadline.

Chen later re-emerged with a high-powered lawyer who said his client was traveling, experienced a slip-and-fall injury, and was unaware his case had been granted.

But the court declined to give him a second chance.

Chen had been fighting Baltimore officials for years, claiming the city illegally demolished his row house.
