Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

IANAL, and I haven’t filed over a hundred lawsuits like Brett Kimberlin, but it didn’t take me long to see that his complaint in his RICO Madness LOLsuit was incompetently drafted. This post first ran nine years ago today.

RICOMadnessI’ve been going through The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO suit trying to figure out what case might actually be there. In order for a civil RICO complaint to stand up in court, the plaintiff has to properly allege two separate predicate criminal acts by the RICO enterprise. Here’s one of TDPK’s attempts at do so—BKvNBC136Ooooooh! Obstruction of Justice! That’s sounds evil.

18 USC § 1503 deals with trying to interfere with or intimidate a federal juror, officer of a federal court, or a federal judge. TDPK fails to explain which defendant did that to any juror, officer of the court, or judge.

18 USC § 1510 deals with bribery. TDPK fails to accuse any defendant of bribing anyone.

18 USC § 1511 deals with facilitating an illegal gambling business. You can bet that he doesn’t mention gambling, legal or illegal, in his complaint.

And indeed, all of the suits he’s filed during the past decade have failed.
