Ah, the Third of September, a dual anniversary. It was on 3 September, 2012, that a person I then referred to as “Some bozo calling himself the Liberal Grouch” came to my attention by threatening. to sue Aaron Walker for defamation. And on this date in 2015, the first defendants were dismissed from Brett Kimberlin’s RICO Retread LOLsuit. I reported on the 2015 hearing in this post titled A Mixed Bag.

Here’s a brief summary of this morning’s hearing in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberln was sanctioned for $760 in attorney’s fees because he was a no-show at the previous hearing.
The case was dismissed against Michelle Malkin, Twitchy, Breitbart, Glenn Beck, The Blaze, and Mercury Radio Arts for lack of person jurisdiction.
Aaron Walker was told to refile his motion to dismiss for technical reasons.
TDPK has been given 15 days to try to figure out how to properly amend his complaint to get around my motion to dismiss for improper venue.
More details later.
UPDATE—The dismissals for Michelle Malkin and the others were also based on Kimberlin’s failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

IIRC, Bill Schmalfeldt never got around to suing Aaron Walker, but Aaron did successfully represent two of the defendants in one of the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuits.
Oh, and one of the grounds for dismissal of the RICO Retread LOLsuit for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted was that the court found that Brett Kimberlin’s reputation was so bad that he was defamation proof, that is was not possible to defame him.
