The Cabin Boy and the other members of Team Kimberlin are beginning to show clear signs of panicking, and they have a lot to worry about.
The Cabin Boy has written that the State’s Attorney’s Office is not answering his questions about dropping the harassment, electronic harassment, and failure to comply with a peace order charges. Given that Judge Stanfield found the tweets in question violated his order and that Schmalfeldt admitted on the record to having sent them, the State’s Attorney’s Office has a fairly straightforward case. Schmalfeldt has some serious worrying to do for the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, back at the RICO Madness, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is busily serving the remaining defendants in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. lawsuit. He’s named 22 defendants. He probably won’t be able to affect service on three of them because he doesn’t know where to serve them. Several of the other defendants may file joint responses, for example, Glen Beck might file a joint response with Mercury Radio Arts and The Blaze. My guess is that there will be a dozen or so additional motions to dismiss coming to the court before the end of January. That means that TDPK will have a dozen oppositions to file by mid February. If he was pressed by having to respond to four …
TDPK already has a bunch of legal work on his plate. On the 10th, he has a report due to Judge Grimm about who has been served (and how and when) in the RICO case. That report is also supposed to include an explanation of why anyone who hasn’t been served was missed and TDPK’s plan for completing service within 120 days of the date he filed his lawsuit.
On the 13th, there are hearings scheduled in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit, including several on motions to dismiss. If that case survives, the defendants will shortly file their answers to his complaint and their counterclaims. They will also begin their discovery. Since discovery is to be completed in March, TDPK will have to attend to that quickly. And, trust me, the defendants intend to make sure he complies with discovery in that lawsuit.
On the 16th, his answers to the first four motions to dismiss are due in the RICO Madness.
TDPK is in way over his head. He needs legal help, but he can’t seem to find a lawyer willing to represent him. Like the Cabin Boy, Brett Kimberlin has some serious worrying to do.
So how do I know they are panicking?
The obscene anonymous comments are back. So far today, I’ve received four such comments to this blog that are obviously from Team Kimberlin. They don’t usually bother to send them when things are going well for them, but they do send them when their blog posts and tweets have been rebutted with facts and ridicule and they simply have nothing left.
