Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign


Johnny is off doing further research on the Short Fused Dud Matter. The initial results are quite intriguing. This recycled program from last April will give the Gentle Reader a taste of what’s developing.

In Re Kimberlin v. Kimberlin Unmasked


Judge Titus has denied The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion for alternate service on Lynn Thomas and Peter Malone (who he alleges to be Kimberlin Unmasked) in the Kimberlin v. Kimberlin Unmasked copyright trolling lawsuit.

This is ruling reaches the opposite conclusion from the same set of facts as Judge Hazel’s ruling in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, creating a split within the same courthouse.

Hmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaints against me in both the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness is that I engage in my First Amendment right to comment on his past and present behavior. He wrote this in his second amended complaint in the state suit—

BKvAW2013SAC-31The Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of the Dread Pirate Pro-Se Kimberlin for a while will remember that TDPK’s state nuisance lawsuit collapsed when he failed to provide even one “scintilla” (Judge Johnson’s word) of evidence of falsity in any statement made by any defendant in that case.

TDPK has tried to make a similar allegation in the RICO Madness.ECF 135-139

Since defamation is a state law claim, TDPK has to prove the elements of the tort as prescribed by Maryland law. That means he must show what was said about him was false. He can’t do that. That’s already been adjudicated in the state case in the favor of Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and me, and he is barred by collateral estoppel arguing otherwise in any further case, including the RICO Madness.

I’ve made it clear that I intend to keep writing about Brett Kimberlin until he is brought to justice. The Gentle Reader should not be surprised to learn that part of my definition of his being brought to justice includes his losing his vexatious lawsuits. By delaying the final resolution of any of them, he increases the amount of time and bandwidth I will spend on telling his story on the Internet. His delaying tactics have the effect of turing the Streisand Effect up to eleven.

collateral estoppel t-shirtOh, one more thing … Collateral Estoppel swag is available for purchase at The Hogewash Store. Stop by a spend some money on a t-shirt or drinkware. The profits go to support this blog and fund the expenses of defending against TDPK’s vexatious lawsuits. If you’d like to help my fellow defendants as well, go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


While I wait for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin to file his omnibus response to the defendants’ motions to dismiss his second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, I thought if might be interesting to review the story of his vexatious federal lawsuit by reposting some of the highlights of the past year’s coverage. Although one is supposed to provide separate proof of service of process for different lawsuits, TDPK tried to use the same green cards as proof of service in both the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and in the RICO Madness. He compounded his error by providing different versions of the same green card in two separate filings in the state suit (Walker, et al.) and using Post Office transaction receipts which did not support his claims of Restricted Delivery in exhibits in a filing in the RICO Madness.

He got caught.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Originally Posted on 9 April, 2014

My part of the preparation for the hearings coming up this morning in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit was the task of cataloging some the evidence regarding the apparent forgeries that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has submitted as exhibits attached to his pleadings in both the state case and the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. If it seems as if my blogging has been a bit light recently, that was caused, in part, by the extent of this task.

Based solely on documents filed by TDPK or issued by the Clerk of the U. S. District Court for Maryland, there apparent forgeries relating to service of process on Ali Akbar, “Breitbart.com,” Kimberlin Unmasked, Stacy McCain, and Twitchy. BTW, in his response to one of the show cause orders in the RICO Madness, TDPK as already admitted to altering the summons he sent to Twitchy.

Today, may be an interesting day.

Stay tuned.

One more thing … You can help my codefendants (Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and Kimberlin Unmasked) and me defend ourselves from Brett Kimberlin’s vexatious attack on our First Amendment rights. Go the Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.

Don’t Even Use That With Me

Originally Posted on 9 April, 2014

That ‘s what Judge Joan Ryon sternly told the The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin when he tried to use his pro se status to excuse his alteration of a document filed with the court in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance suit. The judge told TDPK that she wanted to fine him and took a recess to research whether or not she had the statutory authority to do so. She determined that she did not, so TDPK got off with a warning not to file any further forgeries with the court.

TDPK withdrew all of his motions for sanctions, so the net of the morning is status quo ante—except that Kimberlin is now skating on very thin ice.

My codefendant Stacy McCain will have a more detailed report at his blog.

The state case continued to go downhill from there for TDPK. Most of it dissolved at summary judgment. The rest fell apart without us defendants having to put on a defense. If TDPK is very lucky, the RICO Madness will die at the motion to dismiss stage. Otherwise, we will proceed to discovery, and I don’t imagine that any of the defendants will be willing to put up with the nonsense Kimberlin tried to pull in the state lawsuit. Oh, yes. Discovery will be a bitch.
