The Team Kimberlin PR campaigns have failed for the same reason as their lawfare—incompetence. This Bonus Prevarication Du Jour from six years ago today is an example of Bill Schmalfeldt’s inability to get enough of the facts straight in order to be a be able to twist them to his side’s PR advantage.

So Bill Schmalfeldt wants you to believe that I’m trying to cut a separate deal with Brett Kimberlin from the other defendant’s in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit because my lawyer filed my answer to Kimberlin’s complaint on the day before the last day for me to file to avoid a default judgment. Does he think that I should have waited and filed jointly with my codefendants? The other defendants are all from outside Maryland, and only one has been served. Aaron Walker’s answer is due 30 days after mine. The other three defendant’s will have to answer within 60 days of being served—if they ever are served.
My offer to settle was taken off the table when my lawyer had to file that answer. In fact, that answer has exactly the opposite meaning from what the Cabin Boy ascribes to it. There will be no separate deals made with me. I am now out to win rather than settle.
He seems to still be getting his legal advice from Acme.
