Bill Schmalfeldt is continuing to lie about Kimberlin Unmasked’s lawyer offering an apology to The Dread Pirate Kimberlin during or after the hearing held last Monday on TDPK’s motion to compel Google to provide identifying information about Kimberlin Unmasked. This was in relation to the Maryland Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. Because I am one of the et al., I was present in the courtroom. Bill Schmalfeldt was not. I write as an eyewitness who is able to refresh his memory with access to the courtroom audio recording. Schmalfeldt is relying on the recollections of a convicted perjurer.
1. At no time during the hearing did Kimberlin Unmasked’s lawyer offer any apology to Brett Kimberlin for any action taken by his client or any of the other defendants. He denies having done so, I did not hear him do so, and the court’s recording of the hearing supports that view.
2. At no time from the time the hearing ended until the time Brett Kimberlin left the floor the courtroom is on did Kimberlin Unmasked’s lawyer offer any such apology. He denies having done so, and I did not hear him do so.
3. In the comments to a blog post over at Kimberlin Unmasked,Schmalfeldt claims to have talked with Kimberlin Unmasked’s lawyer. Kimberlin Unmasked’s lawyer denies having spoken with Bill Schmalfeldt. If the Cabin Boy cannot produce some record of the conversation (phone records, emails, whatever), the Gentle Reader can safely assume that he’s lying. Again.
The Cabin Boy wonders if it was unethical for me to overhear a conversation going on a few feet away from me in a public space that the participants were making no effort to keep private.It’s not only ethical, it’s wise. When the other side decides to talk in a public space, one listens. Carefully. Bill Schmalfeldt may still be smarting from the time his lawyer loudly read him the riot act in the hall of the District Courthouse in Westminster last February in full view of Aaron Walker and me. (Wow. I never thought I’d use “Bill Schmalfeldt” and “smart” in the same sentence.)
As I’ve written before, I don’t really know who Kimberlin Unmasked is. I call him/her/them “Elvis” for convenience. TDPK will soon know the most current IP address and name that Elvis used with his/her/their blogspot account. Meanwhile, kimberlinunmasked.com is hosted on an off-shore server.
Elvis has left the building.
One more thing … If you want to help my codefendants and me defeat Brett Kimberlin’s vexatious attacks on the First Amendment, go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.
