Md. Cts. & Jud. P. § 3-1503.1 deals with Interim Peace Orders. That’s the kind that the Cabin Boy™ got against Patrick Grady, in part, by lying that he knew that Mr. Grady was Paul Krendler. As CBBS was trying to point out, lying in order to obtain an Interim Peace order is punishable by a fine of up to a kilobuck and/or up to 90 days in the slammer.
The Cabin Boy’s suing Paul Krendler as a Joe Doe in the current federal LOLsuit creates a strong presumption that he does not know that Mr. Grady and Paul Krendler are one and the same. Taken with his failure to appear at the peace order hearing, that creates a strong presumption that he lied on the petition. A Commissioner could reasonably find probable cause to charge Schmalfeldt.
BTW, that statute doesn’t apply to my peace order petition that I filed last summer and that resulted in the current order against the Cabin Boy™. I never applied for an interim order. If I had lied, Md. Cts. & Jud. P. § 3-1504 would have been the applicable law. But I didn’t lie. The Circuit Court as the trier of fact found in my favor. The Cabin Boy™ didn’t bother to ask for a new trial or to file an appeal. The matter’s closed. He doesn’t get a do-over.
