Plaintiff in this legal malpractice case was held personally liable for human hair import damages. Turning to his lawyer, he was brushed off a second time. The case is Xie v. Lin
"On January 9, 2006, pro se plaintiff, Chuanyu Xie ("Xie" or "Plaintiff"), filed a legal malpractice complaint against his former lawyer Chris Lin (a/k/a Xiaoyun Lin), the law firm of Chen, Lin, Li, & Jiang, LLP, the law office of Lin and Li, and the law office of De Hong (collectively "Defendants"). Upon Plaintiff’s request, the complaint was dismissed with prejudice against the law office of De Hong. The remaining Defendants now move to dismiss the complaint against them pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 12(b) (1), (2), and (6) – lack of subject matter and personal jurisdiction, failure to state a claim, as well as expiration of the statute of limitations. In the alternative, the law offices of Lin & Li request that all allegations in the complaint related to them be stricken pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(e), motion for a more definite statement. For the reasons set forth below, the 12(b) motion is GRANTED and thus, I need not reach the 12(e) motion.
