One of the items to be included in a pretrial statement is a list of witnesses who may be called during the upcoming trial with their contact information. Here’s the list of witnesses that the Kimberlin’s included in their pretrial statement for the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.The Gentle Reader will notice that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has provided a list of witnesses that the plaintiff Aaron Walker might call but none the he or his wife might call.
However, this list looks more like the sort of people TDPK might call. When discussed this list with Aaron, he said that the only
people person on this list that are on the list he submitted to the court are his wife and is me.
The list seems to reflect a very confused idea of what has been alleged against the Kimberlins and how they might defend themselves. For example, does TDPK really think that Judge Creighton could testify to anything that relates to Aaron Walker? Her only connection to Aaron Walker is that he happened to be in the courtroom while she presided at the appeal trial for the bogus peace order petition TDPK filed against me in 2015. Her behavior on the bench was so outrageously biased against me (even though she wound up ruling in my favor) that one of the lawyers (not mine) who witnessed the hearing filed a complaint with the Commission on Judicial Disabilities against her. She resigned because of a more serious problem before that complaint could be considered. I don’t think TDPK would want her to be cross examined.
What admissible testimony relating to the charges filed against Aaron in 2013 and 2015 could be had from Wayne Kirwan (the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office PR guy), Ken Ashford, George Howell, Patrick Grady, or Patrick Frey? And does TDPK believe that Ashford, Grady, and Frey will come to Maryland at their own expense? Is he ready to pay for travel, meals, and lodging for them?
Of course, those questions are probably moot. Because they answered “none” on the discovery interrogatories asking for their list of witnesses, the court will likely hold them to that. Tetyana shouldn’t be able to testify because she invoked the Fifth Amendment for all questions that Aaron might have asked in a discovery deposition. Brett can’t testify because he said that he has no evidence to offer in his defense in answer to another discovery interrogatory. (After all that work getting a bill through the legislature repealing his disability because of his perjury conviction, he still found away to lose the ability to testify. You can’t make up stuff like that.)
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
UPDATE—Aaron has subsequently reminded me that he does not currently intend to call his wife as a witness, but that could change.
UPDATE 2—The Kimberlins did include list of witness as part of one their responses to an interrogatory, a list that is similar to the one above, but given that they answered “none” to the interrogatory: “Identify each person, other than a person intended to be called as an expert witness at trial, having discoverable information that tends to support a position that you have taken or intend to take in this action, and state the subject matter of the information possessed by that person.” Since they have said that there is no one with information to support their defense, they have no one to call as a witness at trial.
