Chancery Dismisses Pro Se Complaint with Aplomb

In Kelly v. Fuqi International, Inc., C.A. No. 6797-VCG (Del. Ch. Jan. 2, 2013), the Court of Chancery dismissed a pro se complaint with patience, careful and extended reasoning as well as aplomb, despite ad hominem attacks that traduced opposing counsel, and cast aspersions on the legal system. See, e.g., footnote 74 and accompanying text. That is the main reason I mention this case in passing. For any lawyer that has suffered through a case with a pro se party who traduces counsel with impunity, this case is must reading.
