First Mate Neal Rauhauser also has legal proceedings pending. He is one of the defendants in suit filed by James McGibney of BullyVille.It was FMNR who first proposed the idea of pro se lawfare as a way to harass conservatives.
Karma is a bitch.
The big news today seems to have been the announcement of the Amended Complaint in BullyVille’s lawsuit that includes First Mate Neal Rauhauser as a defendant.
Several commenters have noted that the lawyer representing BullyVille is the same lawyer who initially represented Nadia Naffe in the Team-Kimberlin-related nuisance suit filed against Patterico. That lawyer withdrew from the Naffe suit. The Gentle Reader can make of that what he will.
There are more shoes about to drop, both civil and criminal, multistate and federal, on members of Team Kimberlin. Indeed, over the next six months or so it may look like a centipede removing his shoes. The next few days might be the last opportunity for some of Team Kimberlin’s associates to turn state’s evidence.
Meanwhile, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit against my codefendants (Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and Kimberlin Unmasked) and me is still going on. You can help us defend our First Amendment rights against TDPK’s assault. Go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.
First Mate Neal Rauhauser ran a blog hosted by WordPress.com called Conspiracy Broker for a while (No, I won’t link to it.). He put what he called his last post for that blog up on 2 January. It contains this paragraph:So, he thinks he will benefit from The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious litigation, does he?
We shall see.
Xenophon the Troll is channeling the Amazingly Inaccurate Criswell again over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) This time the nonsense has to do to with First Mate Neal Rauhauser’s attempt to gen up some sort of connection between the Kimberlin Unmasked identity and a real person.That’s an ambitious undertaking—foolhardy, because there’s nothing to find—but it’s ambitious. You see, Team Kimberlin has already run afoul of the GIGO principle: garbage in, garbage out.
OK, what do I mean by garbage in? Consider these bits of data:The account_id is the correct one for @Kimberlinunmask. However, the login time is on 24 December, 2013. The @Kimberlinumask account was suspended on that day, and it’s not possible to login to a gulaged account.
While it’s not quite as obviously stupid a submitting two versions of the same document to the same court in the same case or as mind-bogglingly crude as failing to remove a PACER legend and using the wrong typeface to create a do-it-yourself court summons, it is … well … it’s kinda amateurish.
It seems that Neal Rauhauser has been trolling for a pro bono lawyer for a friend.
IANAL, but the ones I’ve talked to say that anyone with a righteous libel claim against a defendant with deep pockets should have no trouble finding a lawyer willing to represent him on a fee-contingent basis. Pro bono representation is generally provided to defendants rather than plaintiffs. Of course, those observations come from many of the same lawyers who told me that the reason they suspect that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is pro se is that he can’t find a lawyer willing to risk his law license by signing court papers making the unfounded allegations Kimberlin is bringing.
First Mate Neal Rauhauser has been taking a more public role in Team Kimberlin’s PR spin campaign associated with The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s frivolous lawsuits against my codefendants and me. He’s shown a particular interest in Kimberlin Unmasked.There’s a very simple reason why FMNR can’t find what he’s looking for. It doesn’t exist. It never did. Aaron Walker has never had anything to do with running any of the Kimberlin Unmasked blogs or Twitter accounts.
I call the person who runs Kimberlin Unmasked “Elvis” for convenience. Believe it or not, I still don’t know who Elvis really is. But I do know that certain people are not Elvis. Aaron Walker falls into that category.
Perhaps the rumor is true, and Neal Rauhauser has been a contractor with Acme Investigations all along.
