Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign


Johnny picked up a new assignment today and can’t make it to the studio this evening, so here’s a look at what he was doing a year ago …

JOHNNY: Johnny Atsign.

COUSY: (Telephone Filter) Hello, Mr. Atsign. My name is Bob Cousy.

JOHNNY: Not *The* Bob Cousy who played for the Celtics. I’m a fan.

COUSY: No. Just *A* Bob Cousy. I hadn’t been born when that Bob Cousy was playing point guard. I’m calling about The Grouch.

JOHNNY: What about him?

COUSY: This has come out left field … sorry to mix my sports metaphors … but he’s suddenly started harassing my wife and me. And our baby.

JOHNNY: So why are you calling me?

COUSY: I’m told you might be helpful.

JOHNNY: Perhaps. Tell me your story.

On 8 May, I published the following concerning the final peace order hearing held that morning:

Among other interesting things that came out during the hearing was an admission from Schmalfeldt that he is one of the anonymous cowards who have been sending harassing comments to this blog.

I have received a certified CD of the courtroom audio for the hearing, and I have listened to the relevant section.

I stand by my original report.

Blognet

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Last March, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a peace order petition against me on behalf of a third party. That petition was dismissed on 13 March after a hearing in the District Court. TDPK has appealed to the Circuit Court, and an appeal trial is scheduled for this morning.

During the District Court trial, Kimberlin introduced an altered tweet into evidence, but it wasn’t sufficient to make his case. It will be interesting to see what the convicted perjurer and forger has up his sleeve today.

Stay tuned.

BOB BAILEY: (Telephone Filter) Good morning, Mr. Atsign.

JOHNNY: Yes?

BOB BAILEY: (Telephone Filter) My name’s Bailey. Are you online yet this morning?

JOHNNY: Not yet. I’m still on my first cup of coffee.

BOB BAILEY: (Telephone Filter) You’ll enjoy it this morning. Somebody thinks you’re not real.

Peace Order Update


Following Judge Clark’s advice, I filed for a peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt in Howard County this afternoon. Judge Ricardo Zwaig denied the petition. His grounds for denial were the same as were rejected on appeal in an earlier peace order. Judge Zwaig also disagreed with Judge Clark on whether venue should have been an issue during this morning’s hearing.

Appeal paperwork for both decisions has been drawn up and will be filed over the weekend. One appeal is to the Circuit Court of Carroll County. The other is to the Circuit Court of Howard County.

I don’t plan to have any substantive public comments on either appeal until the respective courts have ruled.

Location, Location, Location


Judge Alice Clark was unable to grant my petition for a peace order because of a question relating to venue. She advised me to refile in Howard County, and she told Bill Schmalfeldt that she understood why someone would want to not hear from him again.

Among other interesting things that came out during the hearing was an admission from Schmalfeldt that he is one of the anonymous cowards who have been sending harassing comments to this blog.

Oopsie.

Speaking of venue …

I’m off the Howard County, so blogging may be light for the rest of the day, and Blogsmoke may wind up preempted.

Stay tuned.
