Last Thursday, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a status report with the U. S. District Court concerning his service of process on the defendants in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. He included the following among his exhibits in that report.
This appears to be a copy of the returned envelope of his attempted service on Ali Akbar. It appears to have sufficient postage that both the federal and state complaints could have been enclosed.
The Maryland state rule requires that service of process by mail be by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested, Restricted Delivery. Note that the Restricted Delivery “Yes” box is not checked.That means that the attempt as service was defective.
One of the motions heard yesterday in the Maryland Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit was TDPK’s motion for alternate service declaring that Ali had been served. In support of that motion, TDPK submitted what was purported to be a copy of the same envelope, but that copy showed a check mark in the Restricted Delivery “Yes” box. When the Judge Burrell was made aware of the fact that Kimberlin has previously filed an exhibit containing a copy of the envelope that, like the federal filing, did not have the check mark, she noted the inconsistency between the two exhibits and denied TDPK’s motion.
It has been suggested that the exhibit filed with the motion for alternate service on Ali Akbar was forged. That is not inconsistent with the evidence.
