One of the major, if not the major, purposes of Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare campaign against the First Amendment rights of people who have spoken and written truthfully about him is what amounts to brass knuckles reputation management. The TKPOTD from four years ago today took a look at the value of Kimberlin’s reputation in the months before the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit went to trial.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin first defamation suit was against a left-wing blogger named Seth Allen. TDPK won that case, but not on the merits. Allen didn’t respond to the suit in a timely manner, so he lost on default. At the hearing to set the amount of damages, TDPK explained the case to Judge Jordan like this—So the judge had to look at the evidence TDPK presented and TDPK’s reputation and determine what damages to award. Kimberlin was seeking a total of $2,250,000. Here’s what the judge awarded.So we have a judicial finding that the value of Brett Kimberlin’s reputation is a hundred bucks (marked down from $2,250,000!). With that in place, it may be quite interesting to see how he will try to convince a court that he deserves a million bucks this time. If he should win. The Gentle Reader may want to get a Res Judicata drinking glass to hold a favorite beverage. Eating all that popcorn can leave one very thirsty.

Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has been progressively less successful with his defamation claims. He got nothing out of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit because the judge ended the trial after TDPK had presented his case, ruling that Kimberlin hadn’t made enough of a case for us defendants to have to present a defense and granting judgment in our favor. Then, the judge in the RICO Retread LOLsuit granted motions to dismiss, finding that Kimberlin’s reputation was so bad that he was defamation-proof.
He should have quit while he was ahead. A hundred bucks ain’t much, but it sure beats worthless.
