Media & Press Coverage of Patel v. Chan (Baltimore Circuit Court)

baltimore-court-logoThis page compiles notable articles and commentaries on the unusual Baltimore Circuit Court Case of Mitul R. Patel v. Mathew Chan (misspelled in court documents). It is a lawsuit purportedly filed by Suwanee Georgia dentist Mitul R. Patel. I was never served or otherwise notified of this case or lawsuit. I only found out on August 10, 2016 when Yelp emailed me that they received a court order with a request by Patel to Yelp to take down my Yelp review of Mitul R. Patel. So far, we believe Patel hired Richart Ruddie’s reputation management firm, Profile Defenders, who used its suspicious and questionable Lawsuit Removal scheme to defraud the Baltimore Circuit Court into issuing a court order to compel various consumer review websites to remove my negative reviews of Patel.
