During the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. (II) RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit hearing this morning, Judge Mason ruled as follows—
The Mantech/HB Gary defendants were dismissed with prejudice for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.
Bill Nickless was dismissed for failure of service of process and lack of personal jurisdiction, but The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was given leave to amend his complaint and re-serve it within 20 days.
PNNL was dismissed because it is not a legal entity and, as such, cannot be sued. TDPK lied to the judge about being put on notice of that error in the federal RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit, and was caught when PNNL’s lawyer produced a copy of her federal filing which put TDPK on notice. Kimberlin was also given leave to amend his complaint to name a proper defendant and re-serve it within 20 days.
There was also a pretrial hearing for the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. Decisions on all of the substantive motions were deferred until the motions hearing scheduled for the 30th.
