The Pleiades: Round 3


Pleiades_Spitzer_MeropeThe Merope Nebula (aka NGC 1435) is a diffuse reflection nebula in the Pleiades star cluster, surrounding the 4th magnitude star Merope. It appears to be about the size of the full moon. It is illuminated entirely by the star Merope which is embedded in the nebula. The nebula appears blue in visible light photographs because of the fine carbon dust spread throughout the cloud. This false color view was put together using infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has tried to use discovery in his various cases to dig up dirt to spread about his enemies. However, he was not successful in breaching the seal on material from the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit, except for some innocuous emails he tried to use in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. suit. He subpoenaed me for information in the Frey case. This TKPOTD from two years ago today shows how I responded—

* * * * *

I have received the following subpoena:

I have provided the following response:

The redactions of the privilege log and one email are for the benefit of third parties not connect to the LOLsuit.

* * * * *

That part of TDPK’s fishing expedition was pretty much a bust. Indeed, he was so unhappy that I couldn’t provide what he wanted that he filed a motion to have me held in contempt. That motion died when the court granted summary judgment in Patrick Frey’s favor.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen;

Why Is The Cabin Boy™ Hiding?


Parties to a court action are required to keep the court informed of their current contact information, including their addresses. The Cabin Boy™ has a history of failing to live up to that obligation, so it’s not surprising that he hasn’t informed the U. S. District Court for the District of South Carolina (where he filed his Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al. LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact) of his present whereabouts. Here’s how PACER reported the case docket as of 12:30 ET this afternoon.The last change of address notice on the PACER docket is for his move to Ocean Blvd. in Myrtle Beach. He has moved again since then.

I wonder if The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt knows what he’s really hiding from.

Or how ineffectively he’s doing it.
