Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin writes some of the most amazing nonsense in his various court filings. Earlier this year, he filed something he called “Plaintiff’s Response to Defendant Hoge’s Two Latest Filings” in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. It’s something of a favorite of mine because of its utterly unhinged nature. Here’s a sample:ECF 49-9My reply to that one paragraph ran for about two-and-a-half pages. Here are the beginning and end paragraphs of that reply:ECF 59-p6ECF 59-p9TDPK’s omnibus opposition to the eleven motions to dismiss is due five weeks from today. I’m looking forward to seeing what wacko claims and theories he will offer in that filing, but, more important, I’m looking forward to the case getting of top dead center and beginning to move again.

  1. “Top dead center”- our host likens the proceedings to a 2 or 4 stroke engine, however the Dread Pro-Se is more of a Wankel, his logic and motions are rotary, circular and never ending. I just wish someone would cut off the fuel supply ($) to that small displacement infernal combustion engine.

  2. Kimberlin says you are wasting his time? And HE thinks YOUR motions are delusional?
    The thing about his stuff is that for now he faces no sanction for coming up with really nutty stuff. Team Themis, Akbar as puppetmaster, Patterico as consigliere. (I’ve lost track. I might have reversed those two.) I hope somehow a judge finds a way to decide in your favor, then make further lawsuits impossible. As I’ve said before, “vexatious” is only a mild adjective to describe Mr. Kimberlin.

    • I’m still no expert on legal matters, but Kimberlin suits caused me to learn more. And I agree Brett Kimberlin belongs to the small club of exceptionally vexatious litigants. One thing I learned is that the legal system is rather poorly tuned for dealing with that small percentage of litigants. So it’s actually fairly common for Kimberlin-style vexatious litigants to get away with it, and some of the vexatious litigants make quite a bit of money with nuisance suits and extortion.

      Nearly all perjurers are never punished. Kimberlin’s perjury conviction at age 19 was a rarity, and Kimberlin later committed many more perjuries that he got away with, often to his gain. The lesson to Kimberlin was that sometimes perjury gives you a couple weeks in jail, but far more often, it helps you get away with other crimes. Most instances that a pro se litigant habitually misleads the court and violates rules, he gets away with it and it works to his advantage (if he at all knows what he’s doing). Most instances a plaintiff – pro se or not – uses baseless lawsuits and threats of baseless lawsuits as a weapon against victims, the victim has basically no chance of coming out ahead because the legal system is not sufficiently unfavorable to such bad faith plaintiffs, nor sufficiently helpful to their victims.

      These problems are often sort of edge cases, and probably fixable by relatively minor tweaks to the system, rather than radical overhaul. But the tweaks are badly needed.

  3. You mention his response is due in 5 weeks. What is the over/under on him filing another request for more time? I mean there is the pesky Veteran’s Day holiday when his kids will be off school, Thanksgiving, etc.

    • More snow days and slap face rashes … and his dog is always hungry for paperwork (plus he will probably allege Republicans through Team Themis have hijacked his computer and nightly delete all his work).

  4. If he does file his reply on time, I’m tempted to suggest that the defendants should request for an extension of time, since their reply timeframe includes major holidays. If nothing else, the judge’s response should be educational.
