After weeks of studiously ignoring the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, Xenophon the Troll is back at Brietbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) trying to put a positive spin of Judge Grimm’s letter order that was filed last Friday.That’s not exactly what the judge ordered.
A show cause order is serious. It’s not a simple “help me understand this” question. It’s an order to appear and explain to the the court why it should not take some action. In other words, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin now has to explain to the judge why sanctions or some other relief are not appropriate, and the burden of proof is on TDPK.
Another part of the spin from Team Kimberlin is that the judge is weary of all the filings, especially those from Aaron Walker and from me. That may be, but TDPK is the only party facing any discipline from the court. If I were Judge Grimm, I’d be tired of all the extraneous paperwork too. Perhaps he agrees with what I wrote in an reply to one of TDPK’s oppositions:
Finally, Plaintiff says of Defendant Hoge’s Motion for Amended Report and Motion to Strike that “[r]esponding to these is a huge waste of time and judicial resource.” Just so, but not in the sense Plaintiff means. It was Plaintiff who filed the instant frivolous and vexatious lawsuit. It was Plaintiff who botched service of process and filed a misleading report with the Court. It was Plaintiff who did not send timely service to Mr. Hoge. All of the paperwork involved in the instant vexatious lawsuit stems from Plaintiff’s actions. And, yes, the whole exercise has been and continues to be a huge waste of time.
The judge has given TDPK until 7 March to get his act together with a proper amended complaint that complies with the Rules. That means that we defendants should only have to file one more set of motions to dismiss, and then things can begin to move forward. Of course, TDPK is threatening to add more defendants which could cause additional complications.
