Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, yes, once your passport is revoked you must return to the US and until your attorney gets it cleared you do not have legal rights to remain out of the US. You need to immediately contact your attorney to find out what he is doing with the situation so you can then go to the consulate and get your passport reinstated. However, you are legally now supposed to immediately leave the country and return to the US to clear this matter up as you are out of status because of the revoked US Passport.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
