Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Shoddy workmanship is a characteristic of almost everything Brett Kimberlin does. One obvious example is his “music.” Another example is his failure to attend to such a simple requirement as sequentially numbering paragraphs in a court paper. This TKPOTD is from four years ago today.

* * * * *

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 10(b) states: “A party must state its claims or defenses in numbered paragraphs …” Here’s how The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin numbered the paragraphs in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2 Electric Boogaloo suit.

Unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, unnumbered, unnumbered, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, unnumbered, unnumbered, unnumbered, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129 ,130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141

popcorn4bkThe “reasoning” presented in those paragraphs is even more poorly organized that their numbering.

Meanwhile, the time to file an amended complaint without first seeking the court’s permission has passed. So has the time to file an opposition to my motion to dismiss the suit against me.

Tick, tock.

* * * * *

It took a while, but the District Court eventually granted both my motions to dismiss, one for lack of jurisdiction and the other for failure to state a claim. The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin appealed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal which wound up awarding me a $600 sanction against Kimberlin “for filing a frivolous appeal in violation of Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 38.”

  1. But at least Kimberlin promptly paid that $600 sanction, right? He certainly didn’t leave that obligation hanging over his head for very long, did he?

    (Yes, I know I’m almost certainly lobbing Our Gracious Host a softball. I’m giving Our Gracious Host an excuse to go into detail of just how Kimberlin so thoroughly earned the title “Deadbeat,” either by saying “this is merely one of the reasons why he gets the title, along with all these other unpaid debts” or “yes, he paid this debt, unlike this list of other obligations he’s chosen to shirk.”)

  2. I hate to be a cynic, but I would suggest someone keep on the Pedo Bomber’s usual cyberhaunts and see if he sets up a fundraiser to allegedly help restore Notre Dame…
