Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt alleged in his LOLsuit that I defamed him was in statements made in a peace order petition. One of the points I made to Judge Kramer on Wednesday is that such statements made in a peace order petition or an application for statement of charges are privileged. While there may be a criminal penalty for lying in such documents, one can’t be sued for defamation for statement made in them. Also, someone republishing the contents of such documents can’t be sued for defamation—if he is accurately quoting what was filed with the court.

On 18 May, the Cabin Boy™ posted a piece at The Liberal Grouch that purported to contain the text of the application for statement of charges filed against in the pending harassment case in Montgomery County. I’ll be served a copy of that charging document on 2 July. When I have the document in hand, I will compare what is in it with what the Cabin Boy™ published. If he hasn’t published the actual text, he will not enjoy the protection of publishing a public document. In that case, the text in his post will not be protected, and he could be held accountable for any defamatory statements.

    • Is there a list of Twitter handles claimed and used by Schmalfeldt? I believe such a list, standing alone, would serve to confirm for any confused bystander just how unstable the man is.

      • I think a list was published at The Think Man’s Zombie a while ago. At the time I believe it was up to around 90 Twitter handles. Many are still showing as suspended.

      • I think over 120 have been identified. BS has helpfully authenticated and posted quite a few at his honeypot blog.

      • I had no idea it was that high. I check his twitter occaisionaly for grins and giggles but it is hard to keep up with him.

  1. Wait, all Bill has to do to stay out of trouble is do what he said he would do.

    …. oh, I see the problem…

  2. “I won’t be posting any further information about this on Twitter.” – BS on this blog, Trailer Trash Talk, June 5, 2015.
    Mission accomplished. If one does not want PUBLIC discussion of events, one should not post them on a PUBLIC forum. I am relieved and hope he will keep his word.

  3. On his blog, BS has made some erroneous comments about Raynaud’s. As a public service, I am guiding people to the right information, just in case they need it. I have lengthy experience assisting family and friends who have the condition. Amazingly, AMAZINGLY, the CORRECT information is available on the NIH (!!!) website! And the Mayo (not mayonnaise) Clinic!
    — fingertips do not “just turn white.” : “the skin may turn white and then blue for a short time. As blood flow returns, the affected areas may turn red and throb, tingle, burn, or feel numb.”
    — lips CAN turn blue: “Although Raynaud’s most commonly affects your fingers and toes, the condition can also affect other areas of your body, such as your nose, lips, ears and even nipples.”

  4. Since the conversation has turned to medical matters, I returned home about 2:30 am this morning after surgeryat 6pm last night … delayed by emergencies … and have just returned from my surgeon’s office after a change in bandages. The surgery went well, I do have some bleeding and seepage of the fluid my doctor used to distend my abdomen … the same fluid that I will be using in my daily dialysis routine once daily dialysis commences in July.
    I am in pain but that is being addressed. I will shortly return to bed where I will remain most of thee day, only stopping in to check the latest when I use the bathroom.
    Thanks to everyone for their prayers and kind wishes!
