Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to bring up his double secret exoneration during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial. He tried to claim that he has successfully sued the federal government for false imprisonment and has used part of the settlement for the initial funding of Justice Through Music Project.

MR. KIMBERLIN: The settlement that I received from the Department of Justice —

MR. WALKER: Objection.

THE COURT: [Addressing the Jury] Ladies and gentlemen, if you’ll please wait outside for just a moment.

Jury Exits.

THE COURT: I have told you twice now we are not retrying that case, and we are not getting into any collateral action you may have brought against the federal government about your conviction in that case. The relevance of that conviction, it was only offered to show why he refers to you as a terrorist, why he’s perhaps obsessed with you [unintelligible] nature of that offense, and I would have permitted him to introduce it if you hadn’t because you sat here and told the jury that you had never been convicted of anything he had blogged about. That is the only reason that it is being admitted. We are not retrying that case. I do not want you to go into it in any more detail. —


THE COURT: — I do not want talk about any collateral civil suit thereafter, ah, sued the federal government for false imprisonment. And I’ve told you that twice. If you do it again, I will find you in contempt.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, the reason I was talking about the settlement from that case was partially used to start Justice Through Music.

THE COURT: It makes absolutely no difference and has no relevance to this particular case —


THE COURT: — how you started and how you funded Justice Through Music.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Alright, I won’t talk about it anymore.

THE COURT: Get the jury back in.

FWIW, Justice Through Music Project was founded in 2003. The JTMP 2005 Form 990 Schedule A shows that the corporation had no income that year and took in $121,450 in 2004.

Here are the cases styled Kimberlin v. U.S. Department of Justice that are reported cases (all have other citations at lower court levels)—

Kimberlin v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 788 F.2d 434 (7th Cir. 1986) was a bogus Privacy Act claim aimed at keeping Carl DeLong’s widow from collecting funds from his prison commissary.

Kimberlin v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 921 F.Supp. 833 (D.D.C. 1996) involved a FOIA request for DEA documents about Dan Quayle.

Kimberlin v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 139 F.3d 944 (D.C. Cir. 1998) was an FOIA request remanded by to the District Court.

Kimberlin, et al. v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 318 F.3d 228 (D.C. Cir. 2003) was his unsuccessful LOLsuit seeking to be able to possess an electric guitar while in prison.

None of these seem to represent a double secret exoneration.

  1. There was no exoneration, double-secret or otherwise. It exists solely on his head, as do many other notions that crop up in court cases these days.

    • It’s pretty obvious that in the Kimberlin household, he requires the fantasy be acknowledged as “real” by those who suffer his psychopath behaviors. This is why he drags his children into his defense in his war against reality – because he fears their realization that he really is a vile, violent criminal and liar.

      • Not a failure, a felony; your tags were stolen, Russ.

        Check for pony tracks.

        Have you noticed a police call box in the area lately, or tomorrow? It’s much larger on the inside.

  2. It’s black letter law that you can’t make a collateral attack on a criminal conviction by civil suit for false imprisonment. The only civil proceedings similar don’t apply to his convictions. The many appeals of his numerous convictions for violent crimes are available to all to find. Kimberlin is a brazen liar.

    Not that that is news.

    It’s hilarious that he wants to call his money laundering a “settlement”.

  3. He should never be able to claim in public again, and never in a court if law, that he ever received any settlement based on any claim he was wrongfully imprisoned for those crimes.

  4. “MR. KIMBERLIN: I —

    THE COURT: — I do not want talk about any collateral civil suit thereafter, ah, sued the federal government for false imprisonment. And I’ve told you that twice. If you do it again, I will find you in contempt.”

    Sure you will, Mason…..


  5. Come now, we all know why it’s not listed in the case databases. As soon as the DOJ heard he might sue them they quivered in fear at his awesome jail house lawyer skills and offered a settlement before he signed anything.

    Has to be that right?

  6. Fun questions: “Mr. Sawed-Off Pedo Bomber, just what was the reason your exoneration was kept secret? What purpose would be served for keeping it unknown?”

    “Mr. Sawed-Off Pedo Bomber, if your exoneration is supposed to be secret, why do you keep talking about it?”

    “Mr. Sawed-Off Pedo Bomber, do you have a single shred of evidence to present that shows your exoneration actually happened, or do you wish us to just take the word of a convicted perjurer that such a thing was done, for the first and only time in history?”

  7. Is there any upcoming litigation where this might possibly be relevant? Because I think it should be a matter of discovery what he means by this, especially if he means to lie to another judge and jury.
