One of the ways that the Cabin Boy™ routinely torpedoes his own schemes is by going off half-cocked. Sometimes, he doesn’t even bother to pull the hammer back that far, and in his truly epic failures he forgets to put a round in the chamber.
For example, consider his current flapdoodle about the letter he sent me in January, 2015. Does he have it? Does he know where it is? Does he know if it still exists? Could he produce it for inspection? Under the rules of evidence, he has no case at all unless he can produce it.
I haven’t seen it since I handed it to Judge Stansfield, and I don’t know that it still exists. Typically, exhibits for a civil matter are kept for six months and then disposed of if not claimed. Because I didn’t have any further use for the letter, I never bothered to ask for it. Did the Cabin Boy™?
UPDATE—So the Cabin Boy™ claims to have the letter—That’s excellent for a couple of reasons.
First, if the Cabin Boy™ still has it, it is very unlikely that he’s been telling the truth about meeting with law enforcement or, if he has, that they’ve taken him seriously. If any investigation were going forward, the letter would be in the cops’ hands not the Cabin Boy’s™.
Second, if he does have it, it has now become discoverable in Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al., and any failure to produce it (and proper chain of custody documentation for authentication) or the receipt for it he was given by a law enforcement agency could result in my seeking sanctions against him.
However, I doubt the Cabin Boy’s™ claim. If he has the original, why does he continue to use the scan of the letter and envelope from Exhibit A in my opposition to his motion to dismiss my petition for contempt that I served on him in January, 2015?
UPDATE 2—I should correct something in the first UPDATE. The Cabin Boy™ isn’t using a scan of the letter and envelope from my opposition as served on him. He’s using the redacted version that be be downloaded here: https://www.scribd.com/document/254014528/Opp2MTDContempt-Redacted
Either he is very lazy or he doesn’t even have the court papers from the January, 2015, show cause hearing. Or both.
UPDATE 3—The Cabin Boy’s™ reading comprehension isn’t very good.
Not only am I not worried about that letter, but I also really do intend to demand that he produce the original in discovery if he has it. I’d like to be able to use it to help make my case.
