Filed Today in Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al.


I filed the following motion in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit this morning.

The motion speaks for itself, and I do not intend to make any further public comment on the matter outside of court filings until after the court rules on my motion.

Murum aries attigit.

Southeast of the Pearl


south-of-the-pearlThis amateur-processed image was taken at 17:27 UTC on 11 December, 2016, as the Juno spacecraft performed its third close flyby of Jupiter. The spacecraft was about 24,400 km above the planet when the image was taken.

Eric Jorgensen, the amateur scientist who did the image processing, cropped the raw JunoCam image and enhanced the color to draw attention to Jupiter’s swirling clouds southeast of the “pearl.” The “pearl” in the upper left is one of eight massive storms at 40 degrees south latitude on Jupiter known colloquially as the “string of pearls.” Jorgensen’s processing of this image highlights the turbulence of the clouds in the south temperate belt of the planet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The year is not starting well for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.

On 4 January, Judge Hecker ordered him to answer several of the interrogatories that he tried to blow off in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

On 12 January, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals found that TDPK’s appeal against me in the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit was frivolous and imposed a $600 dollar sanction on TDPK. On the same day, that court also denied his petition for a hearing because he was late filing his motion for rehearing.

13 January was the drop dead date for TDPK to refile his defective appeal paperwork in the RICO Retread LOLsuit with the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. He waited until the 17th to file.

The Kimberlins filed a motion for sanctions against me in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. case because I informed one of their supposed witnesses, Judge Mason, that they had listed him as a potential witness. Judge Hecker denied their motion on 18 January at same time as he denied their motion for summary judgment.

19 January was the deadline for TDPK to obey the order Judge Hecker issued on the 4th (see above). It appears that he failed to comply with that order.

popcorn4bkThe month’s not over yet, and Kimberlin must be wondering what will go wrong for him next. There are multiple possibilities, and I plan to take steps to make a couple of items more likely to occur than some others.

Stay tuned.
