Prevarication Du Jour

Bill Schmalfeldt is fantasizing that Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous RICO suit has struck fear into the hearts of the five defendants in his similarly meritless state lawsuit, and that our lawyers are no longer interested in representing us.ftrrnews201310161835ZFear? Well, not exactly in my case. I learned of the case by checking the Cabin Boy’s blog at 9 this morning. My lawyer for this morning’s hearing had stepped out of the conference room to check on something, and when she returned, I was laughing at the major stupidity of Brett Kimberlin’s action. On advice of counsel, I’ll say no more than that.

And as to the matter of having counsel to advise me, no one who is on board the current legal team has expressed any interest in leaving. A second attorney will likely be lead counsel for the RICO suit, but there’s plenty of time to sort that out.

UPDATE—Kimberlin Unmasked is also suitably unimpressed.

  1. The notion that a pro-se RICO complaint is a “RICO charge” is hilarious. You could file a pro se RICO charge against the Deranged Freak tomorrow and it would carry as much weight as Kimberlin’s pro se RICO complaint.

  2. Yeah, chance for a little nationwide publicity in exchange for a ltitle cursory work should make it super impossible to pick up a couple extra lawyers pro-bono, which if I’m not mistaken a lot of bar assocations mandate a certain amount as a minimum public service requirement. Shrewd move. Super-Genius level thinking there bub.

  3. Apparently the judge this was assigned to was appointed by Obama.

    That means that the Obama administration is targeting conservatives through the courts, just like they did with the IRS. That should be good for fund raising, eh?
