One of the reasons that Brett Kimberlin has done so poorly with his pro se lawfare is that he’s screwed up the discovery process in all of cases he’s been involved in. The TKPOTD for four years ago today dealt with one of his failed motions seeking a protective order in one of his attempts to get out of providing evidence to an opposing party.

The Kimberlins have filed a motion for a protective order in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. They aren’t seeking protection of documents that are turned over as a part of discovery. They want to be completely excused from having to provide any discovery.
Their basic argument boil down to: We are special snowflakes and should not have to produce evidence of the allegations we make. The court should trust us, and we should be allowed to blindside the plaintiff with surprise evidence if this case ever makes it to trial.
Of course, that’s legal rubbish, but I’ll leave it to Aaron Walker to demolish their motion when he files an opposition.
Meanwhile, it looks as if Aaron has asked some probing questions in the discovery he served on the Kimberlins. It will be interesting to see what might come out in a motion for summary judgment—if one is needed. If the court enforces the Kimberlins’ default, …

While the Kimberlins didn’t wind up in default, their antics would up result in the court sanctioning Tetyana Kimberlin for failure to be deposed during discovery.
