The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s next opportunity to embarrass himself in court is coming on Friday. He’s filed for a peace order petition against Patrick Grady. As I pointed out in an earlier post, there doesn’t seem to be any actual legal basis for his petition.
It looks as if Schmalfeldt’s behavior toward Mr. Grady has violated Md. Crim. Law § 3-803, the general harassment statute. I have seen an incomplete list of harassing contacts alleged to have occurred after Mr. Grady asked TDPS to knock it off. There were 23 separate items, 15 of which occurred after the Cabin Boy™ had been served with the paperwork for the Illinois no contact petition. It may be that the person entitled to a Maryland peace order is Mr. Grady.
It would be a shame for him to come all the way to Maryland and not take a few minutes to fill out the paperwork and spend a few more in an ex parte hearing with a judge. Perhaps TDPS’s attempt at pushback will cause him more trouble that it’s worth.
