In Re RICO Madness


Judge Hazel granted The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin permission to file a motion seeking to identify Ace of Spades in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. He has filed it.

UPDATE—I was amazed to find a package from TDPK in today’s mail. I contained a copy of the above motion and a copy of the letter published earlier asking for permission to file a sanctions motion against Patterico. If the Gentle Reader scrolls through the motion above to the Certificate of Service, he will see that TDPK told the court that he mailed the service to me on the 12th. The kiosk-purchased mailing label is postmarked on the 13th.

No surprise there.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


NoCommentsThe website that The Dread Publisher Kimberlin operates for the Velvet Revolution dot US not-for-profit carries stories about important topics. Its impact on the world of ideas is shown by the reply comments generated. As of midnight last night, the site’s front page shows:

DOCUMENTS SHOW HOW RUSSIA’S TROLL ARMY HIT AMERICA—zero

TOO FUNNY: TED CRUZ WINS PRESIDENTIAL STRAW POLL AT GOP SUMMIT—none

MORNING READS: “OPEN CARRY” SPARKS BACKLASH; COULD FACEBOOK SWING ELECTIONS?—zip

CONSERVATIVE STANCE IN DOE WRANGLING COMES DOWN TO ONE SIMPLISTIC, WRONG-HEADED, SELF-SERVING ARGUMENT—nada

SLAVYANSK FAMILIES FIND SHELTER IN UKRAINE MONASTERY—zilch

The Contest


A couple of weeks ago, I announced a contest to see if anyone could find the amusing fatal error that Aaron Walker found in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion for a new trial. No one has found it yet. I’m disappointed.

If no one has claimed the prize by noon tomorrow, Aaron will publish the answer over at Allergic to Bull around 5 pm ET tomorrow evening.

BTW, we didn’t bother to point out this particular error in our oppositions to TDPK’s motion. We didn’t need to. There are more than enough other reasons to deny his motion.
