Tick, Tock

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seems to have a rotten sense of timing. He filed his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2: Electric Boogaloo lawsuit the day before the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness was dismissed except for one claim against one defendant. He filed an appeal of the dismissal of the federal claim in the RICO Madness case, but as Aaron Walker explains here, TDPK’s appeal isn’t timely.

popcorn4bkOTOH, he may have missed an important deadline. He had 30 days from the dismissal of the state law claims in the RICO Madness to refile them with a state court. Granting him the extra 3 days for notification by mail and the extension to the next working day for the court, that filing was due today. The Circuit Court in Montgomery County closed at 4:30 this afternoon. It is now 4:50 pm as I type this, and nothing has appeared in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search database related to TDPK filing a new state case. Of course, it could be that Kimberlin filed something at the last minute, and that may not appear on the Internet until tomorrow. But for now it appears that he’s missed the deadline. If that’s the case, then all those claims are kaput.

      • Years ago I read a history of the Norman conquest of Sicily. (John Julius Norwich I think). The basic take away was that the Normans didn’t so much win, as they lost less badly, showing slightly less incompetence, and possibly having slightly less just plain bad luck. Though setting up the camp for a seige in the middle of a field of a particularly virulent strain of tarantula was not one of the finer moments, except for storytelling after the fact.


  1. that is unless he just files it late and begs the court to not care about the rules. being maryland, they might just tell him his behavior is so ridiculous that he automatically wins.


  2. Under the Alaska Rules of Court, there is no additional time allowed for court orders that are mailed. If the time limit is ten days, two weeks or thirty days to do something in response to an order, you have ten days, two weeks or thirty days from the date the clerk certifies distribution, period. You might look at Maryland law to see if there is a similar requirement. Beware too of relying on the online docketing information to be right up to the minute. Our courts allow filings to go into a big box which is emptied at the end of the day and then processed overnight and docketed by court gnomes who live in the courthouse basement.


  3. The irony is that in the past, Brett Kimberlin has shown some expertise when it comes to timers…


    • Just wow. If that article doesn’t make you righteously angry — nothing will. “First they came for… ” comes to mind.

      Speaking of Breitbart Unmasked, whether the Team Kimberlin goons are engaging in it and/or supporting it — they are following in some pretty admirable footsteps. *SMDH* From the article:

      “The Palestinian Authority and its defenders have become adept at lawfare… “


    • Any truth to the rumor that Schmalfeldt goes to his Sweaty Palmed Happy Place at the thought of “RWNJ” being illegally raided?
