One of the Gentle Readers suggested that I do a Top 10 list of the biggest mistakes Team Kimberlin have made in their lawfare. That sounds like a good idea, so unless something big happens over the next ten days, we’ll be looking at The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s biggest goofs to date.
10. Brett Kimberlin Sues Seth Allen This is the lawsuit that started things rolling. Seth Allen is a left-wing blogger who began writing about Brett Kimberlin because he thought it hurt the Left’s brand identity to have a convicted terrorist fronting organizations such as Justice Through Music Project and Velvet Revolution US. Kimberlin sued for defamation seeking $2,250,000 in damages. After diddling with service, Kimberlin managed to get a default judgment of a hundred bucks. Although it was launched for the purpose of shutuppery, this suit was the beginning of the Internet becoming more aware of Kimberlin and his background. Also, it was this suit that attracted right-wing bloggers and lawyers to Seth Allen’s support. One of those lawyers was Aaron Walker, who Kimberlin sought to punish for helping Allen.
One more thing … although Seth Allen never referred to Brett Kimberlin as a pedophile, that was one of the allegedly defamatory things that Kimberlin claimed to have been said about him. That will be significant as we move up the list.
