Since May, 2013, I’ve been writing about Brett Kimberlin’s and his buddies’ amateurish attempt to use lawfare to suppress the First Amendment rights of folks who write and say truthful things about them. One of the easiest ways to mock Kimberlin is to point out how he bumbles in court. The TKPOTD from three years ago today dealt with his lack of litigation skills.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin doesn’t seem to know how to present evidence. His incompetence is manifest in the lack of organization of his court filings, and his performance in court is staggering to behold.
I’ve watched him bumble in court a dozen or so time over the past couple of years. The following exchange from the first time I saw him in front of a judge in July, 2012, is typical. Let me describe the scene to set things up. Brett Kimberlin had secured a peace order against Aaron Walker, and it had been appealed. During the trail de novo in Circuit Court, TDPK was trying to convince Judge Rupp that Aaron Walker was the source of some emails.
THE COURT: I don’t see any reference here to Mr. Walker.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, I can show, I can point it out, if you would like me to.
THE COURT: Well, his name isn’t mentioned here, in any of these.
MR. KIMBERLIN: In, in, in some of the e-mails here, in any of these.
THE COURT: Well, I just read them all.
So he handed the judge emails that didn’t even contain Aaron Walker’s name with the intention of demonstrating a connection to him.
Brett Kimberlin is living proof that truth is stranger than fiction.

Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has been able to get some defendants to settle with him, he hasn’t won a single case he’s filed on the merits since I started writing about him.
Everything has proceeded as I have foreseen.
