Prevarication Du Jour

The Cabin Boy™ is tweeting nonsense again.TheMerryWidower201511290435ZTheMerryWidower201511290436ZOf course, his error is probably excusable. After all, Paul Krendler’s post on 18 April, 2014, was a parody of one of the Cabin Boy’s™ from the day before called A Nice Visit From the Police. Here’s a link to the rss feed of the post which the Cabin Boy™ memory-holed in the middle of 2014. Scroll down to 04/17/14–16:06.

It could be that Schmalfeldt has made the quite natural assumption that no one bothered to read his blog post. However, anyone who might have read it would have immediately seen what Krendler was parodying. Who knows? Maybe Krendler actually read Schmalfeldt’s post the day before.

UPDATE—I have pdf and html backups of the Cabin Boy’s™ original post, but I can’t publish a copy of the post here because of the settlement agreement in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright lawsuit. However, I’m not the only person with such backups.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I originally wasn’t the central character in the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Retread LOLsuit in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, but after the hearing on 3 September, 2015, TDPK moved me to the center of the alleged conspiracy. Here’s why.

THE COURT: Okay, so what I will do is I’m not going to rule or decide your motion one way or the other, because as it’s currently pled I think it’s insufficient for me to decide whether he’s got a claim against Hoge or not. So I’m going to allow him to amend as to Mr. Hoge to see if he can allege something specifically that he has done without and actually I won’t decide this one way or the other. So we’ll just wait until he files his amended complaint and then I’ll take up well actually I guess you have to refile it as to the amended complaint. But I’ll leave this for the time being sitting here because if I dismiss the complaint as you then everything else goes automatically and we might as well dispose of some of these other things that we have this morning.

MR. OSTRONIC [My Lawyer]: Do you have a time, Your Honor?

THE COURT: Fifteen days ought to be — I mean, this has been kicking around for years.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Yeah, that’s fine.

THE COURT: Okay, so you’ve got 15 days.

MR. KIMBERLIN: That’s perfect.

THE COURT: But keep in mind it can’t be complaints to officials requesting investigation.


THE COURT: It can’t be coming to court.


THE COURT: It has to be something specific that he said —

MR. KIMBERLIN: All right.

THE COURT: — that accuses you of committing crime, not past crimes you’ve been convicted of —


THE COURT: — but some —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Some new crime.

THE COURT: And it has to be, you know, not a suggestion. His opinion that maybe you or people with you might be behind this. If it’s couched like that it’s not going to be enough so —


MR. OSTRONIC: Your Honor, will it also have to be conspiratorial?

THE COURT: Pardon me?

MR. OSTRONIC: It has to be conspiracy too, correct, he has to allege the elements of conspiracy?

THE COURT: If he wants to bring the other people in with it. But if he alleges your client defamed to him —

MR. OSTRONIC: Then this wouldn’t be the proper venue.

THE COURT: Well, if he has anybody else that he can tie to that. I mean, if there’s more than one defendant he can make that argument, okay.

MR. OSTRONIC: Thank you, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Yes, I mean if all you’re left with is Mr. Hoge, he’s right, then you’ve got to go to Carroll County.


His amended complaint was pretty slipshod. We’ll see what the court thinks of it soon enough.

Legal LULZ du Jour

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt is threatening Paul Krendler with a Brodie motion.TheMerryWidower201511282145Z

Apparently, the Cabin Boy™ is planning on bring suit in Maryland, the only state where a so-called Brodie Motions are filed. A Brodie Motion asks a court for a John Doe subpoena to an ISP seeking a user’s identity pursuant to the case law in Independent Newspapers, Inc. v. Brodie, 407 Md. 415 (2009).

IANAL, but I’m unaware of any similar case law applicable in the Eastern District of Wisconsin or the Seventh Circuit.
