Back in 2016, Brett Kimberlin tried to sue Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley to force the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court through the Senate. The District Court dismissed the suit sua sponte (on its own motion) because Kimberlin lacked standing to bring thee case. The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin appealed to the Fourth Circuit. Six years ago today, the TKPOTD contained a court paper Kimberlin filed as part of that appeal.

One of Kimberlin’s specious claims for standing in that case was that one of his lawfare cases might wind up being appealed to the Supreme Court and that he had a right for a full count of nine justices to hear his appeal. Neither the District Court nor the Court of Appeals agreed.
He now claims to have aa lawyer who is working on a petition for a writ of certiorari for the Seventh Circuit’s denial of an appeal related to the Speedway Bombing. While Merrick Garland didn’t make it to the Court, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett did, so if certiorari is granted, a full court will consider the case.
