The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed for a protective order in hope that it will permit him to avoid having to answer the discovery interrogatories that I sent him through counsel in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance law suit. However, he filed it after responding to my interrogatories. He should have filed it before answering. This is from page 335 of Discovery Problems and Their Solution by Paul W. Grimm, Charles S. Fax, and Paul Mark Sandler—
[T]he defendant filed timely answers and noted its objections but did not seek a motion for protective order beforehand. If the court follows Brittain, defendant will be deemed to have waived its objections …
BTW, the lead author for Discovery Problems and Their Solutions is the judge in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.
Grimm, et al. are writing in the context of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, but I am told that the Maryland Rules are essentially the same.
Acme Law at its finest.
