Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yesterday, I reviewed the transcript of the Kimberlin v. Hoge peace order appeal trial that was held in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County in 2015. It was held before The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s State Senator introduced the bill that removed Maryland’s prohibition on testimony by convicted perjurers, and I was struck that about a quarter of the proceeding dealt with whether Brett Kimberlin would be allowed to testify. He wasn’t.

He had also expected to act as counsel for his daughter in the case, but that was dealt with quickly.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Yeah, but somebody has to present the case. I have all the evidence. I have all the documents, you know, and —

THE COURT: Okay. But you could have hired an attorney for your daughter.

MR. KIMBERLIN: I could have hired an attorney, I guess, but I haven’t had, I didn’t do that in the District Court, and the District Court let me present all the evidence that I’m going to present here. And you know, I mean, how can you — a father has a right to, to come in and present his case for the daughter. I mean, it’s, that’s elementary. It’s, I mean, she, she can’t do it herself.

THE COURT: You know, I don’t know. You do have a problem here which, if you had hired an attorney, you wouldn’t have the problem.

So I’m not going to allow you to act as a lawyer. You’re not barred in the State of Maryland. You really can’t act as an attorney for your daughter. And I think the cases make — as I said, conflict with the statute, but they make you incompetent to testify, so I don’t know in what capacity you’d be filling me in on what your daughter’s case is.

Can’t be a lawyer, since you’re not barred. Can’t be a witness.

The District Court’s denial of the peace order petition was upheld.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

    • Team Kimberlin has been having a series of rough weeks. Imagine how pissed they will be when their bank records are subpoenaed, or more likely seized.

  1. Given his track record, one might think that if he actually cared about his daughter he’d hire a lawyer for her.


    • And deny himself the opportunity to stroke his ego and strut in front of a jury like perry mason?

    • Paraphrasing:

      K: Hey, you know all these other courts let me break the rules so I just assumed you would.

      J: Hmm, that seems pretty compelling, let me think about it.

      K: Thank you your honor.


      J: You know, it has taken me a while, but I am thinking, no, why don’t we try going by the rules this time. Just to see how it works out.

      K: Hey, it’s your ethics complaint to contend with, so, sure, let’s go by “the rules” (and here I am making air quotes with my fingers).

      • “Our first warning? We lost wifi. A half hour later, the electricity went out.”


        “FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Multiple fire departments were on the scene of a fire at the Suburban Inn and Suites in West Florence off of Highway 52 Sunday afternoon.

        When crews arrived at 1914 West Lucas Street, they saw significant damage and fire shooting through the roof, according to Anthony Fox with the West Florence Fire Department.

        Howe Springs, Darlington County, Florence City, South Lynches, Sardis-Timmonsville and Windy Hill fire departments also assisted.”


        Sooo… a multiple-alarm fire, not but 300 YARDS away, with SEVEN different fire department units responding… but, it took losing wifi and electricity and some 30+ minutes to realize something dangerous and tragic was happening 300 YARDS AWAY.

        Don’t ya just hate how quiet a fire trucks sirens are… especially when a whole slew of them are responding at the same time to the same huge blaze 300 YARDS AWAY?

        Stupid and lazy should hurt more. Just sayin’. Idiots.

  2. I’m struck by the constant reliance on ‘rights’- A ‘right’ is apparently a talisman that trumps (*snort) law and procedure. Every time. And on demand.

    El Kimbo is always certain of his ‘rights’. Likewise, Parvocampus is big on his ‘rights’. He ‘has a right’, you know-

    Part of me thinks it’s a case of, “That word doesn’t mean what you think it means.” But then I realize lefties, in general, haven’t read The Constitution.

  4. Point of Order. Can someone better versed in the Kimberlin timeline refresh my memory?
    If I recall correctly, the daughter referenced in the transcript our Gracious Host posted is the one born more than 9 months after Brett was incarcerated?
