The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has about two-and-a-half weeks left to try to find enough well-plead allegations in his second amended complaint to cobble together the elements of at least one of the counts for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. If he wants to keep me as a defendant, he has to make one of the three federal claims work. That’s because he and I are both residents of Maryland, and he can’t sue me in federal court if all he has are state law claims.
So what? FBI agents interview people all the time. Considering that three people, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, and Aaron Walker, who had criticized Brett Kimberlin or beat him in court had been SWATted, asking TDPK what he might know about the situation was not an unreasonable thing for someone investigating those SWATtings to do.
So far as I know, no one has every specifically accused Brett Kimberlin of making those SWATting calls or having another person do it for him. I can understand why someone might be suspicious. As Ian Fleming famously wrote: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.”
TDPK has whined a lot about “false narratives,” but he’s never specified which defendant said what when to whom in any way that actually accused him of being the SWATter. That’s not in his original, first amended, or second amended complaints. He’s not supposed to get any more amendments, so it’s too late to change his tale. Time is ticking down.
Of course, he could just dismiss the suit, but his ego probably won’t permit that.
