Prevarication Du Jour


Over at Breitbart Unmasked, Bunny Boy is running a copy of some tweets that Kimberlin introduced into evidence during today’s hearing. They supposedly prove that I posted a comment on an article at the Montgomery County Gazette.perjury1Because I denied making such a comment and could not authenticate the tweet as mine, Bunny Boy is shilling Kimberlin’s story that I perjured myself today.

Bullshit!

I couldn’t authenticate the tweet as mine, because it isn’t. It’s a retweet. The original tweet (and I presume the comment at the Gazette) was by Lee Stranahan.Stranahan201308281627ZI took me all of two minutes to find that original tweet via Google.

Did I mention that Brett Kimberlin is a liar?

UPDATE—I’m turning off comments to prevent inadvertent education of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin.

Today in Court: #BrettKimberlin’s Case


I’m going to do my writeup of today’s peace order hearing two parts. The first will deal with what happened before the lunch break while Brett Kimberlin was putting on his case. A second post will deal with my response. For a more detailed legal analysis of the case, check out Aaron Walker’s post.

As a preliminary matter, my lawyer raised the issue of Kimberlin being unable to testify in a Maryland court because of his previous perjury conviction. The back-and-forth over that burned up about ten or fifteen minutes and ended with Judge Williams ruling that Kimberlin could not testify.

Kimberlin made an opening statement outlining what he planned to prove with the evidence and testimony of others. During that opening statement he told several lies. One was that I attended a hearing relating to a mental health petition he had filed against his wife. I did not. On 9 July, 2013, I attended a hearing which dealt with protective orders that the Kimberlins had filed against each other. At the end of that hearing, Mrs. Kimberlin was detained. I left the courtroom while she was still in handcuffs but later found out that she was held because of a surprise mental health petition Kimberlin had filed. The judge released her and denied the petition within a few minutes.

Kimberlin also lied by claiming that I had approached his wife and offered her “things of value.” In fact, our first contact came when she approached me in a restaurant while I was waiting to meet someone else. While I was among a group of people who offered her assistance and paid for a lawyer to represent her in a hearing, I didn’t offer her anything of value to do anything for me or at my direction.

Kimberlin also said during his opening statement that I am “Paul Krendler.” I am not.

Kimberlin then called his first witness—Aaron Walker. Aaron’s testimony did not go well for the Petitioner. Aaron wound up testifying about the various claims of defamation that Kimberlin had made in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit and the fact that my codefendants and I won the case on summary judgments and directed verdicts.

Next, Kimberlin called his daughter, the nominal petitioner, to the stand. She testified that she had been bullied at school and that when she had changed schools, her fellow students had googled her and found out about her father and ostracized her. Kimberlin tried to bring in the issue of his being called a pedophile through her testimony. At that point, the hearing had been going on for an hour, mostly because of non-germane points Kimberlin kept raising. The judge had had enough. He told Kimberlin—

I’ve given you some latitude. That. Is. Done.

Kimberlin rested his case, and the judge ordered a lunch break.

Stay tuned for Part Two.

In Re a Denied Peace Order


Here is Judge Williams’s order.

Mrs. Hoge and I are going out for celebratory dinner with some friends. I’ll post more details of the hearing over the next day or so.

One important note—the spouses and children of the members of Team Kimberlin are not a part of Team Kimberlin unless they take an active role on their own or are made a part of the story by the actions of a member of Team Kimberlin. Thus, it was, is, and will continue to be the policy here at Hogewash! that they should not be dragged into any controversy. Indeed, they should be left alone.

 

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Last Saturday, I was served with a Temporary Peace Order. A hearing on a Final Peace Order is scheduled for this morning. Given the facts and the law bearing on the situation, I do not believe that the Final Peace Order should be granted. I’ll make my case, and the judge will decide.

There is a possibility that I will be arrested following the hearing. Brett Kimberlin has a history of filing a false charge or bogus petition just before a hearing that causes his opponent to be arrested immediately after the proceeding. He’s done it to Seth Allen, to Aaron Walker, and to his own wife. None of the charges stuck, but each of these individuals had to put up with being held in custody for some period of time. It seems reasonable that Kimberlin will try to pull the same trick to harass me today.

Today may be very interesting.
