I find it interesting that the first motion The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit was a Motion to Quash Subpoenas and Stay Discovery. I opposed TDPK’s motion and also filed a motion to compel GoDaddy to comply with the subpoena sent to them. Judge Hecker denied Kimberlin’s motion and granted mine.
Kimberlin whined that my subpoenas were part of a campaign to harass him and that I knew his address because he had just given it to the court, so the subpoena was unnecessary.
Between my written opposition and my oral argument, I responded that TDPK did not have standing to move to quash the subpoenas relating to Matt Osborne, Almighty Media, and Breitbart Unmasked—unless he was admitting to being the person writing as Matt Osborne on Breitbart Umasked or that he was the owner of Almighty Media and/or Breitbart Unmasked. As for the GoDaddy subpoena, it was issued when the Kimberlins were evading service. It sought the billing address for Brett Kimberlin’s personal website as a likely means of determining a good address for service of process.
The judge determined that my subpoena was not abusive and that the address provided by GoDadday would be a good check on the address provided by the Kimberlins.
TDPK appears to be deeply concerned about discovery. At the end of the hearing, he moved to stay discovery, and I agreed to put it on hold until after Schmalfeldt’s answer was due and the scheduled Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial was supposed to end. We agreed on a stay until 17 October, the Monday following the trial.
So here is the schedule of upcoming dates for Aaron’s case and mine—
Tomorrow—Motions Hearing, Walker v. Kimberlni, et al., Montgomery County
3 October, Deposition of Aaron Walker by Brett Kimberlin, Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. (Will not occur if Aaron’s motions for summary judgment are granted on Friday.)
11 through 13 October, Trial, Walker v. Kimberlin, et al., Montgomery County (Will not occur if Aaron’s motions for summary judgment are granted on Friday.)
12 October, The Kimberlins’ Corrected Filings Due, Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al.
17 October, Discovery Stay Ends, Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
