Back in 2012, I got involved writing about Brett Kimberlin and his band of supporters and enablers as a result of his being granted a blatantly unconstitutional gag order against Aaron Walker as part of a peace order petition which should have been denied in the first place. The gag order was overturned by a higher court and the peace order was thrown out on appeal. While it took a couple of months for those appeals, it took several years for the judge who knowingly refused to follow Supreme Court precedent in granting that gag order to be disciplined. But three years ago today, I was able to report that Another Loose End had finally been tied up in that case.

Those Gentle Readers who have not been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin from the beginning may not know what triggered the blogosphere’s interest in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Back in 2012, TDPK sought a bogus peace order against Aaron Walker, and the District Court judge who mishandled that case included an unconstitutional gag order against Aaron in the peace order he issued. The gag order was overturned on appeal. The peace order itself was also overturned. It was that brass knuckles reputation management attack on the First Amendment that got a lot of bloggers interested in Brett Kimberlin.
The judge who issued the blatantly unconstitutional order has been reprimanded by the Maryland Commission on Judicial Disabilities. Aaron Walker discusses the details here.
UPDATE—The Scribd link at Allergic to Bull is flaky, but the reprimand can be found at the State’s website.

The peace orders The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin secured against Aaron Walker in early 2012 were that last civil actions he filed and won—and they were both overturned on appeal.
He’s never withdrawn his promise of “lawsuits for the rest of their lives” for Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Alexander, and me, but he hasn’t gone after any of us since 2016.
Perhaps he thinks he’s done with me.
1. The clear loser was Fauxcahontas who appeared completely unprepared and wound up overshadowed by a bunch of third-string players.
2. The competition for most annoying candidate was intense, and I can’t decide who deserves that trophy.
3. Tulsi Gabbard was the least insane of the the bunch.
I think so, Brain … but what if the kangaroos don’t know how to throw a boomerang?

One of the more disgusting tactics used by Team Kimberlin has been doxxing, especially Bill Schmalfeldt’s faildoxes that earned him several restraining orders. When Team Kimberlin weren’t able to dox me because I’ve made my contact information freely available, they resorted to sending defamatory communications to my business associates and Mrs. Hoge’s colleagues on organizations such as the Forestry Board.
Their efforts backfired, in part, because their claims were unbelievable and, in part, because I made sure that some of them were made public.
