Brett Kimberlin is suing four codefendants and me in a Maryland court for a million bucks for writing truthful things about him. He’s suing 20+ codefendants and me in federal court alleging that we formed a racketeering enterprise to spread lies about him. Back in 1996, Mark Singer published an authorized biography of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin called Citizen K. This passage is from page 78—

To a co-worker at IU-PUI, Sandi confided that Kimberlin was “grooming Jessica to be his wife.” To another, Sandi explained that though Kimberlin’s relationship with Jessica was chaste, he intended “to wait for her and would marry her.”
“Jessica” was a middle-school age girl at the time. Sandi was her mother.
