As the TKPOTD from four years ago today noted, one of the defenses raised in The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits was the fact that his reputation as a convicted serial bomber is so bad that he can’t be defamed.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin haz sad because people have said mean things about him. His sad got so big that he up and sued Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked and me for a million bucks (Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.). When the five of us didn’t roll over, TDPK’s sad got sooooooo big that sued the five of us plus a bunch of other folk too—National Bloggers Club, Patrick Frey, Erick Erickson, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Lee Stranahan, James O’Keefe, Mandy Nagy, DB Capitol Strategies, The Franklin Center, Simon & Shuster, Mercury Radio Arts, The Blaze, Ace of Spades, RedState, and something he called “Breitbart.com”—for another million dollars (Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al., aka RICO Madness). Now, TDPK’s sad has swelled to the point that he wants to add even more defendants—Twitchy, Dan Backer, and The American Spectator—and
up the ante changed his money demand to $2,000.000!!!!!!!111!!
Reputation, reputation, reputation! Oh, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial.
—Cassio in Othello II, iii, 265

Judge Hazel dismissed TDPK’s state law defamation claim in the federal RICO Madness LOLsuit for lack of jurisdiction, and Judge Johnson granted judgment for the defendants at the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial because Kimberlin failed to offer any evidence that we had made any false statement, a required element of a defamation case. However, Judge Mason dismissed the RICO Retread LOLsuit in part because he found that Brett Kimberlin is, in fact, defamation proof.
And so, The Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s attempt to use lawfare for brass knuckles reputation management backfired and resulted in a court finding that his reputation is sufficiently bad that there’s no way it can be lowered.
Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.
