Even a flatworm learns to turn away from pain, but Team Kimberlin keeps on making the same mistakes. Just two days after filing his original complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, TDPK filed an amended complaint. He did so without the benefit of seeing how we defendants might attack his case with our motions to dismiss, and he used up the one amendment allowed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. A second amend complaint requires permission from the court.
The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt™ has made the same mistake. Well, not exactly. TDPS waited only one day before filing an amended answer and counterclaims in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright suit.
Slow and steady wins the race.
