Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin—Man of International Consequence

Those Gentle Readers who have been with the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin for lo these many months will know that he had a run in with Aaron Walker in the lobby area outside the 9th floor courtrooms in the Montgomery County Court House back in January. He filed a criminal complaint against Mr. Walker which the State’s Attorney decided wasn’t supported by the evidence. TDPK tried to intervene in the case to force a prosecution.

<mockery>You see, the case was too important to let die. Look at how TDPK began his Motion in Opposition the the State’s Motion to Nolle Pros This Case:

Now comes Victim/Complainant Brett Kimberlin (“Victim”) and hereby opposes the State’s Motion to Nolle Pros this case. In support of this motion, Victim states that this is not simply a run of the mill assault case but rather one that has both national and international ramifications and is being watched by federal law enforcement authorities, State Department contractors, organizations that monitor hate groups, foreign countries with large Muslim populations, and national Muslim and civil rights organizations. There are many aggravating factors present in this case that warrant full prosecution and even consideration of additional charges against Mr. Walker.

Wow! That sure is a heapin’ big burden for a simple assault case to carry. Who knew that Mr. Kimberlin was so important in, for instance, a foreign country with a large Muslim population?

Actually, there are only two of the categories on the list that come close to making any sense. Both of TDPK’s not-for-profits have done work for or funded by the State Department, so they might be the “State Department contractors,” but I wonder what “federal law enforcement authorities” would be following a simple assault case in Maryland. Even if TDPK were still on supervised parole, a parole officer isn’t a LEO.

Hmmmm.

It seems that TDPK may think he’s further up the pecking order than reality would allow.</mockery>

There’s more courtroom hijinks and monkey business ahead. Discovery is due from TDPK in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit next Friday. Considering that Mr. Kimberlin has said that he won’t obey the judge’s order to cooperate with discovery, it may be an interesting day.

So pop some more popcorn, settle down and relax, and stay tuned.

Tick, tick, tick, tick, …

Oh, one more thing … Here’s the Motion I quote from; please note that almost all of its “facts” are contradicted by the courthouse video.

  1. I must say, your updates are the highlight of my day. As someone who has dealt with the legal system, I must say…Kimberlin’s filings are breathtakingly entertaining. And at times I have to remind myself that they are, in fact, real legal documents. Not fabricated stories that you’ve linked from “The Onion”.

    I can’t wait to find out if he showed up to the last hearing. I have a two-part, side bet going on that one. First, that he didn’t show…and second, that the judge dinged him for it. Maybe a $100-$300 fine. Judges are pretty lenient with Pro Se’s (trust me, I know), but you don’t get to just skip out on court.

    If you have any “inside knowledge” of what went down…could you give a “wink wink” so that I know how my wager went?


  2. I was not at the 14 Sptember hearing in Virginia, but the record seems to indicate that Mr. Kimberlin was a no-show. The judge granted him a second 21-day period to comply with discovery which looks pretty lenient to me. My guess would be that the judge will not be amused if Mr. Kimberlin does not comply with his order again.


    • I got the same impression about him being a no-show. But I am very surprised that the judge didn’t slap him for it. I was a Pro Se once and judges really are very kind to us. But, they will only let you go so far. Announcing to the court that you are not going to show up…and then actually not showing up??? That’s almost contempt.

      I have only ever missed a court hearing once. And it was because I was almost hospitalized. And I arranged with opposing counsel to re-schedule. I have never heard of something like that before.

      Oh well. I guess I’ll have to split my wager. 😉
