I really haven’t bothered to look at the noise being generated by Team Kimberlin as they celebrate Mr. Kim’s skillful defense of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin yesterday. Oh, I did see some tweets in my timeline on Twitter, but since I don’t feed trolls, they lost interest before I got home from lunch.
Let’s review the net of the week’s hearings.
First, Bill Schmalfeldt’s defense had the effect of demonstrating that Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt is not a real journalist.
Second, Judge Jones appeared to find that CBBS was engaging in electronic harassment, but that it did not allow her to issue a Peace Order.
Third, Judge Green never considered whether or not TDPK engaged in electronic harassment, again reasoning that it wasn’t a matter for a Peace Order. However, that view of the law means that TDPK’s Peace Order petitions against Aaron Walker were baseless.
Fourth, professional ethics require that since the same lawyer represented both CBBS and TDPK, that lawyer must believe that there are no relevant conflicts of interest between them.
So let Team Kimberlin celebrate. When they get done, King Pyrrhus is waiting to compare notes with them.
The cases continue as they move to Circuit Court. I won’t be able to say much more about these matters until things are finally resolved. But there will be other news.
