Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Consider the following scenarios.

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin receives an order from a court of appeals saying that he needs to file a certificate of confidentiality, but he doesn’t know exactly what that means, so he screws up his paperwork. In that case, he will not have obeyed the court’s order, and his appeal is likely to be dismissed because he failed to perfect it.

Now, suppose someone tips him off to the actual requirements for a certificate of confidentiality with just enough time left to put in the extra effort to file a proper certificate. TDPK might decide to spend a day or two finding all the information needed and drafting a proper document.

In the first case, TDPK winds up losing. In the second case, TDPK puts in a lot more work and still winds up losing because his appeal lacks any merit. Both scenarios have the same ending, but one is more … um … entertaining. Once in a while, it’s useful to educate a midget or a monkey.

I need to check on that popcorn order.

  1. It’s like the exact opposite of Sophie’s Choice! The only problem is that, in this case, you can’t embrace the power of “and.”

  2. Suppose someone gives him the almost correct process only slightly before the due date and he screws the pooch when he files?

    Or, ACME Law thinks they understand the process but don’t and the underage pooch still get’s knocked up.
