Brett Kimberlin’ first felony conviction was for perjury. That was fifty years ago, and there’s evidence that he hasn’t given up on lying in court. Consider this Bonus Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today.

This exchange at the bench occurred between Judge Mason and The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin while Kimberlin was trying to keep information about his bombing convictions away from the jury during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Your Honor, you are being very unfair to me —
THE COURT: OK —
MR. KIMBERLIN: This man has, this, this —
THE COURT: Mr. Kimberlin, I’m not going to listen to this. As I’ve explained, you may think I’m being very unfair to you, I have bent over backwards to be fair to both sides in this case, including not granting the motion for summary judgment, probably at a time when I should have, because you had violated and your wife had violated the Rules left and right. But as a matter of discretion, and I think I said in fairness, even though he is probably entitled to a motion for summary judgment, this is a case that should be tried by jury, and the jury should hear this, and let them decide.
MR. KIMBERLIN: OK —
THE COURT: So I do not —
MR. KIMBERLIN: I have —
THE COURT: — wish to hear that I’ve been unfair to you. I kept this out, this information out entirely, although I thought it was probative, until you opened the door by lying to the jury.
MR. KIMBERLIN: I didn’t lie.
THE COURT: You did lie, sir. Let’s get the jury.
Lying liars gotta lie.
