One of my favorite moments in court with Brett Kimberlin was a day when started to testify and my lawyer objected because he was a convicted perjurer. Maryland was the last state that forbade perjurers from testifying in court, a disability since repealed via a bill offered by Kimberlin’s state senator. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today dealt with Team Kimberlin’s silly attempt to get me tagged with the same disability. It came after the peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt was renewed.

“Knowing what the outcome would be …” My, my, my … that’s almost an admission by Bill Schmalfeldt that the charges filed were knowingly false. Still, you have to admire the chutzpah of Team Kimberlin that allowed them to so brazenly attempt to put one of the defendants in The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. under the same disability to offer testimony as TDPK.
(For those of you just beginning to follow the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin, Brett Kimberlin is a convicted perjurer, and Maryland has a law that prohibits convicted perjurers from testifying in any court proceeding.)

Of course, getting relief from that disability backfired on Kimberlin. He wound up having to be cross examined at later trials.
