We go to trial on Monday. Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar and I are confident that we will be vindicated. After I return from work today, the weekend will be spent preparing for the trial. Blogging is likely to be very light for the next few days.
I got involved in all this when I became aware of Brett Kimberlin’s anti-First-Amendment activities, especially his attempt to use a peace order to unconstitutionally gag Aaron and his calls to Stacy’s wife’s employer that resulted in the McCain family moving to an undisclosed location. I stuck with the story and was able to cover the various trials and hearing in nearby courts during 2012. By late 2012, I had become a target of Team Kimberlin as well. By 2013, I became enmeshed in the legal wrangling myself.
I’m looking forward to the trial, not because I enjoy being sued, but because it will bring closure to one part of that wrangling.
I’d like to thank all you folks who have been supportive of my codefendants and me this past year. The best way that you can support us now is with your prayers. The second best is by supporting the Bomber Sues Bloggers fund. Our lawyer is pro bono, but there are other expenses incurred in our defense. The certified transcript for the 1 July hearing cost about $120. Another thing that you can all do is refrain from speculating on either side’s trial strategy. Brett Kimberlin is really quite a doofus in a courtroom. Please don’t give him any hints.
For now, I won’t be writing about this case. There’s plenty of other Team Kimberlin stuff to publish. There’ll be plenty to write about concerning Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. after the verdict.
