At one point during the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, Bill Schmalfeldt made me a rather unattractive settlement offer. My public response four years ago today was Go Ahead. Make My Day.

Last December, the Cabin Boy™ asked me to make him a confidential settlement offer in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. After due consideration, I made him an offer in January which 1) he published on one of his now defunct blogs and 2) he rather rudely declined. Yesterday, he made me a settlement offer.The offer I made in January was my best and final offer, and it has expired. That offer represented the only terms under which I would have been willing to settle the lawsuit with the Cabin Boy™, but I am no longer willing to settle. Schmalfeldt’s rejected my offer, and it was his last chance to avoid going through discovery and trial.
He can publish whatever offers he wishes. But his time probably would be better spent meeting his obligations in discovery.
Murum aries attigit.

Because the Cabin Boy™ threaten to publish his offer, he shouldn’t have any objections to it coming to light now.
