According to paperwork filed with the IRS, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s not-for-profits spent $34,625 on legal expenses in 2012.
This is from page 10 of the Form 990 filed by Justice Through Music Project.This is from the Schedule O attached to the Form 990-EZ filed by Velvet Revolution US.The only lawsuit involving those entities was Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. which was dismissed shortly after the not-for-profits were added as parties. Furthermore, they were represented in the matter by Jeffrey Cohen, the Executive Director of both organizations. Even if he billed for his services and all the expense was borne by JTMP, it would be unlikely that his fees would have justifiably amounted to over $11,000.
The only other “legal” activity during 2012 seems to be some frivolous bar complaints filed on behalf of VRUS by Kevin Zeese. Again, the apparent level of effort for that work does not go a long way in explaining over $23,000 in expense.
‘Tis a puzzlement.
