Brett Kimberlin has made some amazingly stupid statements in the course of his campaign of lawfare. The TKPOTD from six years ago today detailed one of them.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has told Judge Hazel that he (the judge) found that Kimberlin’s state law claims were viable. He included this line describing his version of the court’s finding in his most recent letter to the court.IANAL, so I’m not sure of the correct legal term is for such a statement, but in engineering it would be referred to as bullshit. The court made no such finding. Here’s what Judge Hazel wrote.Judge Hazel’s saying that the state law claims were outside of his jurisdiction and that he intended for the federal court to mind its own business is not the same thing as saying those claims are valid. Indeed, he expressed no opinion on the state law claims other than to note that they might be barred by “res judicata and/or collateral estoppel.” Meanwhile, Maryland Rule 2-101(b) allows a 30-day window to file the claims in a state court after the dismissal by a federal court for lack of jurisdiction. Time is up at close of business on Thursday. If TDPK does file something before the window closes, I look forward to using that suit as further evidence of his vexatiousness.
