As one of the defendants in four of Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous defamation LOLsuits, I could have raised truth as a defense. As far as I know, what I’ve written and said about him is true, and he’s never offered any contradictory evidence. I never had to offer that defense because my codefendants and I were granted a directed verdict in the first case when Kimberlin failed to show any of our statements were false and because none of his other cases survived motions to dismiss.
One of the grounds for dismissal that several of my codefendants and I raised was that Kimberlin’s reputation as the Speedway Bomber was so poor that it was impossible to lower the public’s opinion of him, and that was one of the bases for Judge Mason’s granting dismissal in the RICO Remnant (Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al II) suit.
Try as he might, Kimberlin has failed to rid himself of the Speedway Bombing convictions. The Supreme Court has denied his petition for a further review.
Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.
