Here’s another exchange between The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and me when he had me on the stand as his witness during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. TDPK was struggling to get documents into evidence and was trying to get me to authenticate incomplete and altered copies of blog posts.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Can you authenticate those?
MR. HOGE: No.
MR. KIMBERLIN: You can’t authenticate them.
MR. HOGE: No, not without the complete context of all the blogs to make sure that nothing’s altered.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Take a look at this, oops, identified as Plaintiff’s Exhibit 19 —
MR. HOGE: I can’t identify this as being from my blog. It says it’s a page 2 of something, but I can’t identify it.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Page 2 from Hogewash —
MR. HOGE: It might —
MR. KIMBERLIN: What is the name of your blog?
MR. HOGE: I have, that’s the name of my blog but that would not be the way my blog would format a page. So no, I can’t authenticate it.
You’d think that someone with experience with “over a hundred” lawsuits would have a better grasp of the rules of evidence. OTOH, he’s lost almost all those suits.
