Legal LULZ Du Jour

Judge Mason ordered that no further motions for sanctions should be filed in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit until after the case is concluded.398855V DI 112So the Kimberlins have filed another motion for sanctions.

Paragraph 1 asserts that the “Defendants” served discovery on Aaron Walker. That isn’t true. Only Brett Kimberlin attempted to serve discovery. Tetyana Kimberlin did not sign either the request for production of documents or the deposition notice.SigBlock_1SigBlock_2In any event, nothing was properly served. Paragraph 1 also contains an admission that TDPK’s attempt to serve discovery on Aaron Walker was via “Priority Mail with a tracking number” instead of Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested as the judge had ordered. The motion spins further out of control from there.


UPDATE—Here’s the address found on the letterhead of the videographer’s bill attached as an exhibit to the Kimberlin’s motion.CRVideo letterheadHere’s the letterhead used by VelvetRevolution.US to file a bar complaint.VRUS letterheadThe sharp-eyed Gentle Reader may notice some similarities.

UPDATE 2—I’ll just leave this right here.

  1. I have no idea how much Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested might cost, but I’d wager it’s rather a lot less than $586.00.

    • Depends. I just paid myself $100,000,000. Didn’t change my financial position. The $8 I spent at the pharmacy yesterday set me back $8.

      • No, he’s not paying himself. He’s paying money from velvet revolution to this other company. No material benefit appears, but the money stops belonging to the charity and belongs to him instead.

        It’s money laundering. He’s laundering money and waving the evidence under a judge’s nose. I’m starting to think he gets a sexual thrill out of breaking the law.

  2. I’m surprised he hasn’t filed a motion for sanctions on the judge.

    Or is that next week?

  3. Funny place to hold a deposition……

    About Asset Strategies International

    Asset Strategies International, a Rockville Maryland company, founded in 1982, is an innovator in alternative asset ownership, including precious metals, foreign currencies, global asset protection, and the Rare Tangible Assets strategy. ASI’s mission that you “Keep What’s Yours” is accomplished through carefully designed wealth strategies accessible to all.

    • Meh, looks like he used one of those office rental places. They’re a few in the giant office tower down the road from me. Like AirBnB for offices. While they’re haven’t been many coincidences here, the shady company (that probably barely uses it’s office) showing up on the rental list doesn’t surprise me.

      • I just found it….queer….that he’d pick a place that included a “investment” firm that seem designed to help people hide money. You know, like people that owe a huge settlement but don’t want to pay but still want to pay for expensive trips to Hawaii, trips to Nashville, etc?

  4. For a guy that spent time in a hearing emotionally telling Judge Mason that he didn’t want people making fun of him, he seems to not understand how not to set himself up to be laughed at. No wonder he and Defendant Schmalfeldt are such kindred spirits.

  5. Yeah, he can’t use his own employer to video a deposition. In some states, it has to be someone who is authorized to administer an oath.

    • That’s the requirement in Maryland. Didn’t see anything in there about having a notary public present. So he wasn’t prepared to take a legit deposition anyway.

      Wow.. that motion is crank-dancing on a Schmalfeldtian scale.

    • Authorized to administer an oath? That would not be child pornography convict, marijuana-medicated Craig Gillette, nor any of his pseudonyms.

      • Ya know, if I found out that a child’s friend lived with a convicted child pornographer, the friend’s father’s status as a felon wouldn’t the thing (or the only thing) preventing overnight visits.

  6. I enjoyed the part where he claimed he and the videographer only stayed 30 minutes, but the videographer’s invoice bills for 3 hours and lists explicit start and end times, as opposed to actual time or any kind of “minimum charge” arrangement. Kind of makes you wonder who’s running that “business” with such shady practices. TDPK should consider suing the scoundrel for billing fraud.

    • I’m also curious as to exactly what evidentiary value he thinks is provided by two pictures of an adjustable clock. If I take a picture of a computer date/time right now that says it’s 1985, does that “prove” TDPK should be serving his prison sentence, and he’ll surrender himself to the proper authorities?

    • The “invoice” was dated prior to the event date, so, in theory, a “pre-paid” service. Questions whether there was (or could have been a refund) are relevant (if it were to get that far). That noted, the exhibit itself is worthless – it’s just an invoice.

      Shifting gears slightly, I did notice that claims made in Paragraph 3 to be supported by Exhibit C don’t match up very well. I suppose that it could be discounted as a non-germane discrepancy; but, based on history, it does draw it into question.

      • Yep, If he’s going to file crap he thinks entitles him to reimbursement, and claim his exhibits are a true and accurate representation of his final expenses, he’s going to have a hard time squaring that circle. The proper piece of evidence to include would have been the receipt, or failing that, the cancelled check or credit card statement.

    • And why, oh why, is the videographer hired for a start time FIFTEEN MINUTES earlier than Brett Kimberlin rented the room? You can’t set up in a room that you haven’t been allowed into yet. And another FIFTEEN MINUTES after the room rental ends?

      Shady, shady, shady.

  7. If only he’d actually spent $586, rather than the $105 for the room. Then it would be funny for a different reason.

    Pretty damn amusing to see him try to directly defraud the court, though. Especially Judge Mason, since he’s busted Kimberlin lying so many times already.

  8. Why is the notary page in blue while the next page is in black? For all we know, Brett forged that signature without a notary present.

    “Delivered, In/At Mailbox” so in other words it was not properly sent via the court rules.

    All the Pedo has demonstrated that he’s willing to waste money flouting court rules.

    • Some auto scanners will selectively scan pages in b/w or color as the page requires — if there wasn’t any color on the first couple of pages, they’d appear in grayscale; but when there’s a recognizable color, it’d do that.

      So that one’s plausible.

      The rest, though…

    • It is possible to demand signatures on priority mail. He didn’t even comply with the practical function of the order, let alone the order.

      If bk found the method of service ordered by the court confining, he could have asked permission to use an alternative method. He just substituted his own whim for the courts purposeful order.

    • In regards to the seal by a notary public, I would note that the only thing that we know that was notarized, if it was notarized at all, is the third page. Alternate first and second pages could have been submitted with a “notarized” third page. That is, unless it was filed with a ribbon binding all three pages together. The first two pages do not show any signs of such a binding.

  9. Currently, I cannot find any business called “CR Video Services” registered in Washington, D.C.

  10. Hmm, what could “CR” stand for?

    Child Rapist, perhaps?


    Nah, let’s go with “Child Rapist.”

  11. BUSTED!!!!!!!!! I guarantee you Brett Kmberlin is disgusted with himself for ever attacking John Hoge several years ago. When will Brett learn that John & Aaron have him right where they want him?

  12. Perhaps I’ve missed something, but did the court authorize this deposition? Or isn’t authorization necessary?

  13. From the addresses on both documents, it appears BK is the videographer himself, and is billing himself for his own work — OR, his videographer is not a an objective third party, but a related party. In any case, someone should ask BK the name of the videographer, preferably under oath. I suspect that the $586 on the vid bill is not really a true liability of BK, and his mentioning it in his brief is therefore in bad faith.

    • Their website shows they clearly do not do video depositions. You have to be certified to do that stuff. Just a coincidence anyways in terms of similar business names. It appears to be a chain of groups under from my observation.

      • If a videographer has to be certified to do video depositions, can BK show that his videographer has such a certification? If not, then that might be more evidence of bad faith.

    • No, it’s not the same. by accident or design, both CR video whatever and “Keystone productions” (which featurse a Gillette “performance” on “CR’s blog”) ape the names of folks with actual Baltimore-based businesses.

        • My state is the same way. I had to make it very explicit the name I wanted, of course, but the way the paralegal started writing it, she was saying the state would kick it back because it was too close to another company’s name.

  14. I’m definitely going to recommend that company for some depositions in Washington when they come up.


  15. What I find interesting is how Brett Kimberlin has avoided perjury charges. While claiming to offer an “affidavit” “swearing under penalty of perjury” that “the above information is true and correct,” he placed that affidavit within a pleading that he knows is privileged. What is noticeable is that Brett Kimberlin did not swear to correctness of any of his alleged exhibits.

  16. What is the judge supposed to do with one proposed order for two different forms of relief?

    Besides PLM and throwing it out, I mean….

  17. The more I think about this, the more I wonder what the play here actually is.

    He knows that the judge will side with Aaron, because he knows he hasn’t played this with a straight bat.

    He also knows he’s not allowed to ask for sanctions.

    He knows that courts are reluctant to grant sanctions at the best of times, let alone a pro-se playing silly games.

    So what’s the advantage? He’s not bogging down Aaron – the judge’s own order means he doesn’t have to worry about this.

    I suppose his play is that he can now claim that Aaron didn’t show up to a deposition, but why bother – he lies about everything anyway. He’s got a long list of claims that are bogus to draw on already.

    I guess I’ve just put more thought into this than he ever did.

      • The play is “See! See! The mean ol’ judge didn’t bend over for me AGAIN! BIAS! BIAS! I’M THE VICTIM!”

        • Yea, I know.

          But sometimes I make the mistake of looking at this through a lens of common sense and ask myself “what is the point of going to all that trouble”.

          I mean, the man has submitted a fraudulent invoice directly to a judge. To the average person who wants to stay out of trouble, that’s massive risk for no meaningful reward. But I guess once you pull similar stunts for long enough and get away with it, the risk/reward ratio changes somewhat.

          Or so he thinks.

  18. I’m a bit of a math geek, so I just noticed this: in what universe does 3X125 = 475? Where did the extra $100 count for?

  19. So if Tetyana came into the US under forged papers; and gets convicted of a crime; can her munchkin-loving ass be deported?

    I know I should really ask Ely, but I’m trying to save my cash for a rainy day.

    • She’s been naturalized and has children born here. Chances of deportation are zero or thereabouts. I do not doubt, however, that the littlest bomber has held her “complicity” over her head more than once.

    • I feel for Tetyana. She was a kid at the time; whenever that was and however old she was.

      She has children whom, I’m sure, she loves. Tetyana is likely at some personal risk and her access to her children is surely at risk in a land who’s legal system she can’t possibly comprehend. Hell- I daily stand agog at what Kimby gets away with.

      I personally have had multiple formerly idealistically naive views of our legal system disabused watching Brett over the last 2 years or so. Judges in Maryland should be frickin’ ashamed of themselves. Only thing I can figure is that they need to create work for themselves in order to keep the legal pipeline filled.

      My goodness Brett Kimberlin needs to be squashed.

      But not Tetyana. I feel badly for her and her children. This isn’t going to end well for them no matter what. Even IF Boom-Boom makes his way back to the prison cell he so richly deserves; Tetyana and the kids are going to get hurt (financially if nothing else).

      I myself am hopeful WJJH has a plan for letting Tetyana out of the consequences Brett has forced her in to.

      Because my thinking here is showing up in ‘yesterdays Legal Lulz Du Jour’ post I’m going to paste it forward in to the following post, not yet heavily commented on, in hopes TFS Community will take same in to consideration.

      And finally, know that I think that Bill is (unbelievably) stupid. But I also think Brett is evil. That’s my personal opinion, Brett, not libel.

      Don’t RICO me bro’-

      • I personally have had multiple formerly idealistically naive views of our legal system disabused watching Brett over the last 2 years or so.

        The problem is that judges are actually quite busy. They want to have one hearing to deal with pretrial motions, a hearing on discovery issues (if necessary), trial, then a single hearing on post-trial motions.

        But that’s assuming that both sides are playing by the rules. Where you have someone like Kimberlin, who is operating so far beyond the normal rules and decorum of the court, it clogs up the process.

        I definitely agree that the judges have made some poor decisions and have failed to control the abuse of process by TDPK. The problem is not because the system is messed up, it is because you have someone who doesn’t understand the rules.

  20. #SMH Trying to catch up here.

    So let me get this straight. Brett hired the guy who lived in the basement of his children’s home who was convicted of possessing child pornography to film him continue his harassment of Aaron? This is same creep he hired to film his teenage daughter’s music videos? The same guy he paid to stalk Blog Bash?

    It what world did he think this would work out well for him? Or that Aaron would be dumb enough to show up for that charade?

    And then to put the cherry on this pie he actually submits evidence to the court that this creepy dude is on the payroll of one his shady charity operations?

    Has Brett been dipping into Bill’s JWR stash?

    • Absolutely not.

      First, Willie is not a giver. He is a taker: that is one skill at which he does not fail.

      Second, Willie swears he does not drink any alcoholic beverages so there can’t be a stash.

      Third, the stash undoubtedly has been completely consumed this late in the evening.

      Fourth, I have read somewhere that the nuns are terrified by the incipient violence threatened by Willie’s residence so they certainly are not letting convicted bombers drop by.

  21. BK is going to continue to flout the “rules” of Maryland courts so long as the Maryland courts let him do so.

    It isn’t stupidity. It is learned behavior. He is free to do whatever he wants. He has a non-zero chance of recovering money he never spent. And he has zero chance of being punished for his dishonesty.

    Cynical? Maryland courts can easily make me look like a fool by proving me wrong.
