After a long day (it’s over 80 miles to Manassas from my house) of non-action in court reporting, I decided to take a look at FMNR’s Kookpocalypse. The site started to look like a nothing-to-see-here-move-along waste of time until I spotted an item he had posted that could only have come to him from The Dread Pirate Kimberlin and that TDPK could only have acquired through discovery in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.
Judge Potter specifically told TDPK on 5 October that discovery was to be kept confidential between the parties, for counsel’s eyes only. Since TDPK is proceeding pro se, that means there is no one else with whom he may share the discovery materials he has received from Aaron Walker. No one. Not even one of the other defendants—they weren’t parties to that discovery.
<mockery>I simply don’t understand TDPK’s strategy of continuing to thumb his nose at Judge Potter’s instructions. Furthermore, I don’t understand why FMNR thinks that posting that sort of stuff will be looked on favorably by the judge. Maybe he really thinks that he has dodged service in the suit. If so, he’s in for a nasty surprise.</mockery>
Dan Backer has been kidding my about my salt consumption with all this popcorn. Actually, I eat it unsalted. The stuff I bought from the Boy Scouts has a smooth, naturally buttery flavor when I pop it in the microwave. I recommend it.
UPDATE—Mr. Backer has sent me an email about buying popcorn from Cub Scouts at his Metro stop this evening. Good.
