Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Team Kimberlin’s failures at lawfare aren’t limited to The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits. All of the LOLsuits filed by The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt have been spectacular sources of pointage, laughery, and mockification as well. The TKPOTD from two years ago today dealt with LOLsuit VII: Degenrations.

* * * * *

So the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuit VII: Degenerations has been voluntarily dismissed without prejudice. I’ll bet that the Cabin Boy™ thinks that means that he can still file another LOLsuit against Patrick Grady and/or Sarah Palmer alleging the same butthurt again. I’ll also bet that he would be wrong.

IANAL, but I can read a law book. When I read Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(B), I find these words concerning the effect of a voluntary dismissal:

But if the plaintiff previously dismissed any federal- or state-court action based on or including the same claim, a notice of dismissal operates as a adjudication on the merits.

IIRC, LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler targeted both Patrick Grady and Sarah Palmer with claims that overlapped with LOLsuit VII. If I’m understanding FRCP 41 correctly, my characterization of “really most sincerely dead” applies to LOLsuit VII. With an adjudication on the merits res judicata should now apply.

res_judicata_mugsActually, Patrick Grady probably could have relied on res judicata as a defense in LOLsuit VII, because he was targeted in LOLsuit V and LOLsuit VI. Other people are probably also covered to some extent: Eric Johnson (LOLsuits III, IV, and VI), Roy Schmalfeldt (LOLsuits V and VI), Paul Krendler (LOLsuits I and III), Nancy Gilly (LOLsuits I and VI), Howard Earl (LOLsuits III and IV), and me (LOLsuits I and III).

The Cabin Boy™ really is giving The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin a real contest for the title of World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

* * * * *

And as I foresaw, the Cabin Boy™ didn’t learn much from LOLsuit VII, and the next year he filed LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact. He lost that one too.

Has the Cabin Boy™ learned his lesson?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin would string together some of the sillies lies to try to fill out the false narratives in his LOLsuits. The TKPOTD from three years ago today dealt with one of the whoppers in this RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has me confused with another William Hoge. He put this in a recent filing in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.ECF 67-p8He must have me confused with my late father, who was a Special Agent in the U. S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps during World War II. He was involved in investigative work in the U. S. during the first part of the war, and he commanded a Counter Intelligence Team attached to the 66th Infantry Division in Europe. (Military Intelligence was not a separate branch back then. My father was commissioned in the Infantry, and he was the only infantry officer to accept the surrender of a German submarine, but that’s another story.) After the war, his CIC team was involved in rounding up Nazis. He continued to serve in the Army Reserve until the late ’60s and transferred to Military Intelligence when it became a separate branch.

I was commissioned in the Signal Corps, and while I worked closely with SIGINT guys from time to time, I was never a part of Military Intelligence. I’ve had various security clearances as a soldier or as an engineer working on government programs, but I’ve never been a spook.

TDPK is either very confused or hallucinating or lying. Or perhaps all three.

* * * * *

Upon reflection, this was certainly an example of a time to embrace the power of AND.

The following is from the TKPOTD published four years ago today. That post dealt with a codefendant’s court filing noting that the doctrine of res judicata should require the federal court to dismiss The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness LOLsuit because of his loss in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit in state court.

* * * * *

res_judicata_mugsOf course, one of TDPK’s claims is that I’ve been using my reporting on his activities to raise money by defrauding the Gentle Readers who hit my Tip Jar. He has yet to explain how that injures him. In any event, I’m always thankful for reader support.

Most of the time I’ve spent as a defendant in The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits has been rather dreary, but there have been amusing moments. One good time that stands out in my memory was Brett Kimberlin’s futile attempt to out-crazy Stacy McCain on the witness stand during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial. The TKPOTD four years ago today recalled part of Stacy’s testimony.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was utterly disorganized in his approach to getting things into evidence during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial. The only way he had to get the defendants’ allegedly defamatory writings into evidence was to show us copies for us to authenticate. Nothing that he showed me for authentication was an accurate copy of anything that I had posted. It was either incomplete or altered. Stacy McCain had the same experience. For example—

MR. KIMBERLIN: Can you identify this article?

MR. MCCAIN: No. No. This is an altered version. This has material that’s extraneous to the article.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Did you write an article attacking a reporter named Monica Hesse.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, your honor.

THE COURT: Sustained.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Challenging.

THE COURT: The objection’s sustained.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Do you know Monica Hesse?

MR. MCCAIN: I don’t. I have never met her.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Do you know that she wrote an article about my daughter in the Washington Post?

MR. MCCAIN: No. She wrote an article about you in the Washington Post.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Did you tweet that Monica Hesse works for a newspaper that’s hostile to the — Washington Post?

MR. MCCAIN: Yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Did you tweet that my daughter is a girl who can’t sing a lick?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: What’s the relevance of that, sir? You are the party in this case. Not your daughter.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor, these people —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection to the “these people” thing.

THE COURT: Well —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay. Mr. McCain wants to harm me —

THE COURT: Hold on a second. You are the party in this case, so I sustain the objection as to any questions having to do with someone not party in this case.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, I just want to ask him if he wrote this.

THE COURT: You can ask him if he wrote that tweet, and he can answer that a yes or no.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Did you write that tweet? Just that tweet?

MR. MCCAIN: No. That’s not — that’s different than what I wrote. That’s not —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Okay —

THE COURT: What is that? Is that number 20? What? Twenty-four?

MR. MCCAIN: Your Honor —

THE COURT: That’s okay. It’s not in evidence.

TDPK got very little into evidence, and what he did get in was insufficient for the judge to allow the case to go to the jury. That’s why he gave us defendants a directed verdict in our favor without our having to put on a defense.

TDPK’s strategy and his execution of it during the trial was truly ACME Legal at its finest.

Meep, meep!

* * * * *

So TDPK’s inept attempt at brass knuckles reputation management failed. As did his career as a musician. As did his career as a drug smuggler. As did …

One wonders: will he ever notice a pattern in his life?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin wants to be famous, but he’s done nothing to earn fame. His accomplishments in life have led to infamy instead. Rather than take steps to reform and rise above the reputation he has earned for himself, he has tried to silence those who have spoken and written truthfully about his past and present activities. This blog has chronicled TDPK’s use of the legal system to attempt to suppress the First Amendment rights of his critics. The TKPOTD from four years ago today deals with one skirmish in that multi-year fight.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin wanted a preliminary injunction in the Kimberlin v. Waker, et al. nuisance lawsuit that would have required Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me to take down everything we had posted on the Internet concerning him. His request was denied.

He sought permission to file a similar motion in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, but when he was told what limitations would be placed on his filing, he chickened out, saying that he would file yet another vexatious lawsuit and seek a preliminary injunction through it.

I now state for the record that I have decided to file a separate federal lawsuit against those defendants for conduct outside the current case, and I will file the preliminary injunction motion under that case number.

Go ahead. Make my day.

* * * * *

As the Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin knows, TDPK was dumb enough to file two more LOLsuits, a bogus peace order petition, and a false criminal complaint against me. They all failed—as did all the other lawfare he filed against my 40+ codefendants and others people and organizations.

Losing losers gotta lose.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin started his campaign of lawfare against the First Amendment rights of people who spoke and wrote truthfully about him in a futile attempt at brass knuckles reputation management. Of course, his LOLsuits blew up in his face (Yeah, I typed that on purpose), and his inept litigation became a reliable source of pointage, laughery, and mockification. As the TKPOTD from three years ago shows, one of his consistent failings was making self-contradictory claims in his court filings.

* * * * *

Here’s another example of how The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is unable to keep his stories straight. This is a portion of a paragraph in a recent filing he made in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit.M2Recon_p?If the Gentle Reader were to type that URL into his browser, he would be taken to this YouTube video.GB_AW_youtubeNote the date that the video was published—25 May, 2012, the date of Everyone Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day. That’s the day Aaron Walker was interviewed by Glenn Beck, and Kimberlin states in his filing that Aaron appeared on that program and asserted that Kimberlin had SWATted him.

That was a pretty neat trick on Aaron’s part because he wasn’t SWATted until a month later, on the same day as the Montgomery Circuit Court threw out the unconstitutional gag order that had been imposed by the District Court. TDPK admits this in the complaint he filed to initiate the LOLsuit.Retread Complaint-75Brett Kimberlin is not only a liar, he’s a very bad one who can’t keep his stories straight.

TardisThis made up nonsense about Aaron accusing TDPK of SWATting him a month before Aaron was actually SWATted is only the most glaringly obvious false and self-contradictory allegation in TDPK’s filings.There are many more, and they will all come back to bite him. Self-contractidory claims are not entitled to a presumption of truth.

And, no, I haven’t been lending out my time machine.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

As so many judges have found, “The Plaintiff has failed …”

Well, TDPK did succeed in one thing with his RICO Retread LOLsuit. He managed to see the court find that his reputation was so bad that there was no way to lower it—that he is defamation proof.
