It was eleven years ago today that Brett Kimberlin tried to use his iPad to take a picture of Aaron Walker in the waiting area outside Judge Rupp’s courtroom in the Montgomery County Courthouse. Given the context of the of the statements The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin had made, Aaron interpreted Kimberlin’s movements as threatening, and he acted to disarm Kimberlin by taking the large object Kimberlin was brandishing out of his hands.
Things went downhill from there, and TDPK built a false narrative around the event which resulted in a bogus peace order against Aaron, Aaron being arrested on a false charge related to that order, and years of follow-on lawfare. Oh, and lots of adverse publicity for Brett Kimberlin.
BTW, taking a photograph in a Maryland courthouse without permission from a judge is against the law.
Oh, one more thing … IANAL, but wouldn’t Kimberlin’s threatening gesture with his iPad constitute an assault on Aaron Walker?
