Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

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.

  1. Also interesting his how others just “find” self-serving evidence at the most opportune moments. DMCA take down notices, for instance.


  2. It’s not especially hard to get documents authenticated and entered into evidence. But you don’t want to put it into the hands of a hostile witness if you can help it.


  3. Now, regarding Hoge’s petition. Here it is.

    Oddly enough, the box marked “I request that the Court send this stupid, feeble-minded, no-self-control-whatsoever-having dumbass Respondent to jail” is NOT checked.

    Blob, haven’t you been screaming into the ether that our gracious host is determined to do just that? Send you to jail? It seems that you’ve just posted evidence to the contrary.

    Could it be, Blob, that you’ve been…lying?

      Stories can be changed when dramatised. Answering machine instead of email. Voiceprint instead of computer forensics.


  4. Some familiar points about trolls listed here. Highlights:

    13. Expect the troll to try to spin the situation as you harassing him as the net tightens.

    17. Above all, don’t be afraid. The troll is targeting you because he hates the fact that other people think you matter and he feels he does not in comparison.
