racket | noun | a loud unpleasant noise: a din.
As the mutli-motions hearing day (4 December) for the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. case approaches, Dan Backer, Aaron Walker’s lawyer, has filed a Response to Defendant Kimberlin’s Motion for Protective Order to Stay Discovery.
Gentle Reader, please allow me to point out some of the better bon mots.
In response to TDPK’s assertion of a Fifth Amendment right not to answer discovery:
Whatever crimes Defendant Kimberlin is committing, those actions do not give him any type of blanket right to refuse to answer discovery in this case.
On TDPK’s assertion that delaying discovery won’t prejudice Mr. Walker’s case:
Defendant Kimberlin states unequivocally a stay of discovery “will not prejudice Plaintiff.” Besides providing no basis for that conclusory statement, he ignores his own actions, which have in fact prejudiced Plaintiff Walker. As stated previously, Defendant Kimberlin has willfully and purposefully violated this Court’s October 5 Order multiple times. … After attempting to “try this case on the internet,” Defendant Kimberlin now asks this Court that he not be subject to the same rules he has so blatantly flaunted. [sic]
And then there’s this:
In a final display of Defendant Kimberlin’s seemingly unshakable hubris …
<mockery>Ah, hubris … The ancient Greeks believed that Nemesis dealt with the hubris of mortals. Perhaps the law is TDPK’s nemesis.</mockery>
Tuesday is almost here. You still have time to lay in a good supply of popcorn. I hear that Amazon has some good deals, so if you buy from them, please buy via an affiliated blogger (I’m not one) who will get a commission. You’ll help that blogger and provide another reason for Team Kimberlin to fixate on the right half of the blogosphere raising money.
Tick, tock, tick, tock, ..
