Brett Kimberlin filed his Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit in October, 2013 with multiple counts against over 20 defendants. All but one count against one defendant were dismissed in March, 2015. The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to appeal the dismissal to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, but his appeal was rejected because part of the case was still pending in the District Court. He then tried to get the District Court to issue a final judgment on the dismissed portion of the case so that he could appeal the dismissal. Although we expected to win any such appeal, we defendants weren’t in any hurry to put our victory at risk. This post, In Re RICO Remnant, ran five years ago today.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a motion seeking to have the dismissal of his RICO and Ku Klux Klan Act claims in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit declared final. That would allow him to file an appeal with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals without having to wait for the disposition of his remaining claim in the case, which is now the Kimberlin v. Frey, RICO Remnant LOLsuit.
Aaron Walker isn’t in such a hurry.

It took another couple of years for the RICO Remnant case to wind down in the District Court. Of course, TDPK lost; the court granted summary judgment in Frey’s favor. By that time, Kimberlin has been beaten enough times that he didn’t bother to appeal the initial dismissal. He only appealed the summary judgment, and he lost that appeal.
As TDPK’s lawfare campaign was getting started almost a decade ago, Kimberlin threatened to sue Frey, saying that he’d filed over a hundred lawsuits and that one more would be no sweat. It may be that the sweat resulting from the multiple losses may have become too uncomfortable for Kimberlin, He hasn’t filed any LOLsuits for a while.
