Prominent Space Lawyer Goes Missing


EVE is a sandbox game. That means there is almost no limit to the problems that a carebear may face. And a carebear who represents himself in court has a fool for a client.


When people think of space lawyers, they think of Babatunde B Babatunde. The mere mention of his name sends a shiver down the spine of New Order Agents.


Babatunde first came to the public eye during the Mine Teck case.


Ever since, he has been active in the highsec community, doing his best to wrap up New Order Agents in red tape. Agents just want to do their job and get the bad guys, but Babatunde makes sure every "i" is dotted and every "t" crossed.


He's kept us honest, though, and legal problems tend to resolve themselves. But then, suddenly...


...He was gone. Babatunde B Babatunde has disappeared from EVE.


Conspiracy theorists are quick to point to the fact that just before Babatunde vanished, he had been preparing what he called "the largest class action suit in the history of New Eden". On EVE-O, Babatunde wrote:
Greetings friends,

I have found a shocking loop hole in the New Halaima Code of Conduct.

I don't want to alarm anyone but I have spent the last few months building a case against the New Order of Highsec and I am 99.9% sure I can claim at least 25% of the 111 Billion shares sold by James 315 back. These of course should go straight back into the hands of the victim's - the miners of High sec space.

Please kindly deposit the measly sum of 5 million isk to me (for case expenses) to get your name in on the largest legal dispute in the history of New Eden. The more names I can get the stronger the case will be - so we all win.

Yours Faithfully,
Babatunde B Babatunde
Babatunde's plans for a class-action suit against the New Order immediately sparked curiosity. Eyebrows were raised concerning the mysterious "loop hole" in the Code. A few days later, Babatunde provided an update:
Ok guys listen up, first of all I would like to thank you all for the support so far, I have made plenty of Isk -- which will go straight into case funds.

The court date at the Supreme Court of the New Order is set for:

Friday 15th August 2014 at 04:20 EVE time

The location will be Kamio, this may upset some people as they might have expected Halaima, but I can assure you that it is a venue issue.

Please kindly continue to send me Isk so I can build an even stronger case against the New Order menace,

God Speed,

Babatunde B Babatunde -- Angel of High sec Justice

And then, just like that, Babatunde was gone without a trace. Many suspected foul play. When asked for comment, an official representative for the New Order simply replied, "Why are you asking questions about dead space lawyers?"


As Agent Malcolm Shinhwa pointed out, the profession of space lawyer is alive and well. However, the disappearance of Babatunde remains a mystery. Will it ever be solved? Only time will tell.

    I had it blocked out in the diary but would much prefer to be out enforcing the Code than sitting in a court room.

    Does anyone think that the space lawyer looks like Pestario Vargas twin?
    Or does Pestario have an alt ego?

  7. Personally I was suspicious when he advertised getting 90 million isk back to Mine Teck while charging at least 100 million isk for services.

  9. Does this disappearance say "scam" to anyone, or is it just me?

  10. I know I have at least one evemail from the lost space lawyer, but I cannot find it. Clicking a pre-existing linked character name would help us know whether his name was legally changed by CCP or if he was biomassed. I noticed while looking through my evemails that biomassed characters are grayed out with (RIP) following their names, at least when I check my evemails on the forum. But his evemail seems to have disappeared...

    Babatunde appears to be a fairly common African name, particularly in Nigeria. It means "father has come back."

    Every time I think I am closer to the answer, more questions are raised.
