In Re Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.

As I mentioned in the summary posted yesterday, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has appealed his loss in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit to the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. The court has posted its December schedule which shows that the case will be considered on 14 December and will be submitted on briefs. It appears that the court does not wish to hear oral arguments.

    • I think that means that the briefs show that there no chance of a novel legal question here. It’ll be decided entirely on law and precedent. That seems like very bad news for Team Kimbergarten.

    • It means that the court thinks there’s no reason to have oral arguments. The briefs are sufficient for them to reach a decision.

      Given that the appellant is pro se, not particularly surprising.

    • To be serious (because I am going to make jokes later), i don’t think so. This was always very likely to happen with a pro-se on the plaintiff’s side. some courts have per se rules against pro ses making oral arguments, mostly because you get some real nutjobs as pro ses.

      Of course some of those same courts make an exception is the pro se is a lawyer, but even if they were inclined to make an exception for me, they wouldn’t for Brett.

      And if they were on the fence about the matter, probably my briefs pointing out how often Brett lied would have sealed the matter for them. So maybe that means I am convincing them, or… maybe they just don’t like pro ses in oral argument at all.

      Yes, it is possibly for a much more optimistic reading, like they feel like they heard enough, but i don’t want to jinx it, either.

  1. Unnamed Judge of the Special Circuit googles Brett Kimberlin. “Hey, he has a band. And he’s the lead singer! Let me hear how he sounds!”

    Listens to Brett’s singing.

    “Hey, guys, we don’t want to actually listen to this guy.”
