This exchange at the bench occurred between Judge Mason and The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin while Kimberlin was trying to keep information about his bombing convictions away from the jury during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Your Honor, you are being very unfair to me —
THE COURT: OK —
MR. KIMBERLIN: This man has, this, this —
THE COURT: Mr. Kimberlin, I’m not going to listen to this. As I’ve explained, you may think I’m being very unfair to you, I have bent over backwards to be fair to both sides in this case, including not granting the motion for summary judgment, probably at a time when I should have, because you had violated and your wife had violated the Rules left and right. But as a matter of discretion, and I think I said in fairness, even though he is probably entitled to a motion for summary judgment, this is a case that should be tried by jury, and the jury should hear this, and let them decide.
MR. KIMBERLIN: OK —
THE COURT: So I do not —
MR. KIMBERLIN: I have —
THE COURT: — wish to hear that I’ve been unfair to you. I kept this out, this information out entirely, although I thought it was probative, until you opened the door by lying to the jury.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I didn’t lie.
THE COURT: You did lie, sir. Let’s get the jury.
Lying liars gotta lie.
