99.99999 percent of the difficulty between Aaron Walker and TDPK stems from a improper motion that Brett Kimberlin filed in a court case in Maryland. The motion needlessly divulged private information about Mr. Walker and his employer. Mr. Walker was successful in having that motion sealed. It is still under seal. Except …
Except that TDPK included that motion in an unredacted state as an exhibit his Motion to Dismiss filed on 5 October in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. civil suit.
I have redacted Seth Allen’s address, Aaron Walker’s address and date of birth, and the name and address of Mr. Walker’s former employer.
<mockery>If you read through the Saga over at Allergic to Bull, you’ll find that TDPK expressed “concern” that some angry Islamist would attack or kill Aaron Worthing/Walker because a website he had run—and he then proceeded to attempt to publish Mr. Walker’s personal information by including it in a public court document, the original motion in question. He’s tried to do it again. That was a serious error.
IANAL, but breaking the seal on a court document without permission or the order of a higher court strikes me as massively stupid. It certainly isn’t the sort of behavior that is likely to convince a judge that one is acting in good faith.</mockery>
There will be plenty more to ridicule. So grab another bag of popcorn, settle down, and stay tuned.
