It was Neal Rauhauser who floated the idea that pro se litigation could be used to harass and cower Brett Kimberlin’s perceived enemies.
[T]he potential for a pro se litigant to force them into expensive, long distance, lengthy, discovery laden litigation doesn’t seem to cross their minds. The reality of travel, or frightful expenses, or summary judgments needs to be made real. We probably need to make a very visible example of at least one of them before the rest understand.
This idea appears to have stimulated The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s delusions of adequacy, and he began to threaten bloggers.
I have filed over a hundred lawsuits and another one will be no sweat for me. On the other hand, it will cost you a lot of time and money.
Both Brett Kimberlin and Bill Schmalfeldt tried their hands at pro se litigation. It took them a while, but they seemed to have learned the reality of travel, frightful expenses, and summary judgments. And Hogewash! has been a part of making a visible example of them.
I’m not done with them yet.
