All of Team Kimberlin’s pro se LOLsuits that have been filed since the beginning of 2012 failed. The first bunch were so shoddy that I started joking that they must buying their legal advice from the same Acme that supplies a certain coyote. Four years ago today, I ran this post about More Acme Law from the Cabin Boy™.

The Cabin Boy™ seems to think that he is entitled to a second bite at the apple with “Roy Schmalfeldt.” IANAL, but I don’t believe he is. Rereading his amended complaint in the Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al. LOLsuit, it is obvious that he sued the person using the name “Roy Schmalfeldt” who made the claim in a comment over at TMZ that the Cabin Boy™ was a rapist. He includes a copy of the offending comment as an exhibit to his amended complaint. The Cabin Boy™ also dismissed his complaint with prejudice. As I understand things, such a dismissal counts as a finding on the merits in favor of the defendants. That would seem to mean that res judicata prevents the Cabin Boy™ ever again suing the person who made the rape comment about that comment. The matter is settled, and no court in the United States, state or federal, can take it up again.

One of the false narratives The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to peddle in his LOLsuits against me is that I wrote about him in order to generate revenue for this site. He made that claim before I had a Tip Jar or an Amazon shopping link or The Hogewash Store or any other revenue source for this blog. In fact, I was (and still am) using paid hosting at wordpress dot com in order to keep third-party advertising off of the site at the time he started telling that lie. I put up the Tip Jar and other money makers as low key ways to help defray the cost of defending his LOLsuits, and they didn’t actually generate more revenue than my legal expenses until after I had already won several of the suits.
But back to the post about Acme and the Cabin Boy™—The post above was about Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuit V. IANAL, but I believe that the legal doctrine of res judicata would have killed LOLsuits VI through VIII if they had ever got far enough along for that to be considered. They didn’t because they were dismissed on other grounds first.
Now, for some shameless commerce—Res judicata goodies and other Hogewash! related swag are available at The Hogewash Store.
