I have had several requests for an update of the status of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness. While I usually refer to the case as Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al., it is properly styled Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al.
As of noon today, PACER shows the following:
1. Neither Twitchy, Dan Backer, The American Spectator, nor Lynn Thomas have been added as parties to the case.
2. There is no order shown on the docket granting or denying TDPK’s motion for a second amended complaint.
3. There is no order relating to possible sanctions against TDPK for sending the forged summons to Twitchy.
4. All the dates for oppositions or replies to open pleadings have passed.
This means that both TDPK’s motion for a second amended complaint and the possible sanctions against him are still pending.
If the Court were to allow the second amended complaint, then there will be another round of motions to dismiss from the defendants, oppositions from TDPK, and replies from the defendants. If the Court denies the motion for a second amended complaint, then the pending motions to dismiss are ripe, and the Court will proceed to consider them on its own timetable.
