Four years ago this month, the only one of the Team Kimberlin LOLsuits that made it to trial went to trial. The other dozen-plus failed on motions to dismiss or motions for summary judgment. The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit was terminated after The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin failed to prove a key element of a defamation claim—that what had been said and written about him was false. What Kimberlin’s defamation claims have always amounted to is that he haz sad when people tell the truth about him. However, butthurt is neither a crime nor a tort. This was posted four years ago today during the run up to that trial.

I can understand how someone might have a strong dislike for a person who set a time bomb in the parking lot of a high school football game. Someone who was convicted of a series of high-profile bombings might be considered to have become infamous. And being frightened of such a person is a perfectly reasonable reaction.

TDPK would have done better to have quit after that first loss. He didn’t, and in one of the succeeding cases he wound up with a ruling that his reputation is so bad that he’s defamation proof.
Nothing proceeded as he had imagined.
