UPDATE: RICO Retread LOLsuit Dismissed Against Aaron Walker

A member of the Vast Hogewash Research Organization has picked up a copy of Judge Mason’s most recent ruling in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit. The case has been completely dismissed with prejudice against Aaron Walker. The bases for dismissal were res judicata and failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.


A copy of the order is en route to Westminster, and I will scan it and post it as soon as it arrives.

UPDATE—Here is Judge Mason’s opinion and order:

UPDATE 2—I just got off the phone with Aaron Walker. He says that he’ll be publishing some comments on today’s ruling at Allergic to Bull later this evening. When he told me the headline he intends to use for the post, I smiled.

UPDATE 3—Aaron has informed me that he won’t have his comments ready to publish until sometime during the day on Friday.

  1. Hmmm I wonder what is going on in the Kimberlin household right now…………..

    Hint, warm, yellow, acrid stench, flowing….

  2. That is GREAT news.

    I seem not to have been paying attention. Have others not filed similar motions? Or was this a result of filing for expedited disposition under the anti-SLAPP law?

  3. News like this is why God gave us alcohol! 🙂

    I’d leave a message for Brett directly, but Mr. Hoge would have to redact it if I did 😉

  4. failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

    Is that just legalese for the court saying “so what?”

  5. Glad to hear of Aaron’s victory. It’s too bad that Kimberlin can file lawsuits that are almost duplicates of ones already dismissed, without any consequences.

  6. When the facts are this clear, it’s only a matter of time and persistence before the courts get it right.

    Sadly, it seems to take more time and persistence than it should.

  7. Btw, this also means his suit against John is dead. Other defendants can latch on, too. I’d say more but why give it away?

  8. Congratulations, Aaron and John.

    I’d click over to ATB to read Aaron’s comments, but well…

    I say again, John, please, Aaron has many admirable qualities, but please do not adopt his posting schedule! (I kid, well mostly…) And again, congratulations.

    I am the point of his spear.
    I am the mail at his fist.
    I am the bane of his foes,
    and the woes of the treacherous.
    I am THE END.”
