Ken at Popehat has a post summarizing the Kimberlin brouhaha. (H/T, Jonathan H. Adler) He mentions that he is looking for lawyer to support a couple of yet unidentified bloggers facing legal harassment, one in Central Florida and one in Middle Tennessee.
Akbar is not the only additional victim. I’m trying to help another blogger faced with particularly despicable lawfare, apparently by Kimberlin allies. I put up the Popehat signal here. I’ve gotten some responses, but I’m still looking for federal criminal practitioners in the Middle Districts of Florida and Tennessee.
UPDATE–There is good advice concerning how to deal with possible harassment in this post at The Camp of the Saints.

If Kimberlin be Voldemort, which one of us is Harry Potter?
UPDATE–Is Judge Vaughey a muggle?

Paul was on the inside of Team Kimberlin for about six months.
He left with a mother lode of emails and other files, many of which have been useful over the past years. There is still some rather interesting information that there’s been no need to publish. Yet.
After the He Who Must Not Be Named post, I began referring to Kimberlin as Lord Voldemort and his allies and enablers as Death Eater Wannabes. Later in 2012, Kimberlin set up a pirate-themed website called the Bloggers Offense Fund. That’s when I began calling him The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. After he sued me, that became The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin, and after he failed to pay sanctions and court costs, Dread became Deadbeat. So now he’s The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin. The tag also describes many of his other attributes: Pusher, Performer, Perjurer, …
