The Team Kimberlin lawfare is slowly grinding to a halt. Yesterday, I posted the news of The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s voluntary dismissal of his appeal of the RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit. While pro se litigation can be done on the cheap in a trial court. Appeals are expensive, especially in state courts that require submission of 15 bound copies of each brief and 10 bound copies of record extracts. That can add up to thousands of pages. Perhaps TDPK is finally getting the message that his return on his costly investment in his lawfare has been negative. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with the question of how long it would take Kimberlin for figure out how badly he was screwing up.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is no stranger to filing—and losing—RICO lawsuits. While he was still in prison, he ran a business selling porn to other jailbirds. When he lost his original connection for the porn, he turned to a new source, but was unsatisfied with what was provided. On page 213 of Mark Singer’s Citizen K we find:
In January 1987, in federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, Kimberlin sued Crest Paragon Productions, alleging false advertising, breach of contract, mail fraud, conspiracy, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). … He asked for compensatory and punitive damages totaling $150,000. After “a [redacted] Reagan appointee” dismissed the suit on procedural grounds, Brett appealed to the Seventh Circuit but was told he’d have to pay an additional filing fee. “I decided at that point I’d spent enough on this,” he said.
One wonders when he will come to the same realization in his current Rico Madness.

Kimberlin still has two cases that aren’t dead, Yet. One his appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. It’s the remains of the RICO Madness case. The other is Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. which he filed in federal court at the end of October, 2016. Judge Hazel has issued a show cause order to Kimberlin requiring him to explain why the Breitbart case should not be dismissed because the complaint Kimberlin filed violates a protective order issued in the Frey suit.
Here’s TDPK’s response.
OK. Time to order more popcorn.
