FWIW, I believe the most import part of my reply deals with the implications of res judicata. TDPK sued me in a related case in state court and lost. Under Maryland law, he could have included every single one of the claims in the RICO Madness in the state lawsuit, but he chose not to. It’s also the law in Maryland that res judicata applies to TDPK and me not only for the claims he made in that state case but also for the claims he could have made. That means that res judicata barres all of his claims against me in the RICO Madness. The same doctrine obviously applies to my codefendants in the state suit, Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, and Ali Akbar.
There’s another twist to this. When a conspiracy is alleged among defendants and res judicata applies for one, it applies to all. TDPK alleged that every single defendant was a member of his mythical RICO conspiracy. That means the res judicata also should apply to his claims against National Bloggers Club, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Lee Stranahan, Mandy Nagy, Breitbart,com, DB Capitol Strategies, Dan Backer, Mercury Radio Arts, The Blaze, Ace of Spades, RedState, and Twitchy.
