Judge Grimm hasn’t yet granted The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s Motion to File Second Amended Complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. He may not. One reason he may not is that the complaint does not comply with Local Rule 103.6. That rule requires that a marked up version of the proposed amended filing be provided along with a clean copy. This allows ready comparison between the existing pleading and the proposed one.
The markup is supposed to identify all the new material with boldface type or underlining and show the deleted text enclosed in brackets or as strikethrough text. TDPK markup is full of errors.
For example, in the caption on the first page TDPK added Twitchy as a defendant, but did not put its name in boldface or underline it. He did use boldface for the other new defendants.
And then there’s the very first sentence …The marked up Second Amended Complaint is full of similar errors all the way to the end. One whole new section isn’t identified as a change. And in the prayer for relief at the end, TDPK changed the amount of damages sought without flagging it.
He changed “and amount exceeding $75,000” to “an amount exceeding $75,000, that is $2,000.000.” (sic) BTW, with that decimal point in place, the amount sought is two-thousand and not two-million dollars.
