Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The whole point of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare has been to try to regain control of the false narrative he had begun spinning about himself. The project has been an abject failure. If you do a Google search for images of Brett Kimberlin with the search period set to Any Time, you’ll get a result like this one I downloaded last night. While most of the images are associated with truthful reporting about TDPK, some of them are from friendly sources. However, if you do a search with the time period set to Past Year, the impact of Streisand Effect publicity resulting from his LOLsuits can be seen.You have to scroll way on down the page in order to find images associated with something favorable to Kimberlin. The passing of time has not helped Kimberlin. If you limit the search range to Past Month, you’ll see something like this—TDPK sued trying to claim that his likeness was being misappropriated and that he was harassed by being portrayed as a cartoon nazi. The Gentle Reader can see for himself how well that played out.

Heh.

Ah, LOLsuit III: The Search for Schlock—it was a marvelous source of pointage, laughrtery, and mockification. If I hadn’t been one of the defendants, I might have enjoyed watching the Cabin Boy™ make a fool of himself with a long, drawn out case. As a defendant, I filed a motion to dismiss which killed the case fairly quickly, but while that motion was pending, I did point, laugh, and mock. The TKPOTD from four years ago pointed out one rather spectacular error in The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s complaint.

The Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuit that he’s filed against Eric Johnson, a couple of John Does, and me is a real piece of … um … of work. Paragraph 40 is particularly entertaining.WMSvEJ ECF 1-40popcorn4bkNotice that he starts out by saying we said false things about him but ends up saying that we gave unwanted publicity to private matters—which is an admission that what we said was true.

Oopsie.

I’m not kidding about LOsuit III being over in a hurry. The judge dismissed the suit two weeks after the Cabin Boy™ filed it. The judge found that Schmalfeldt was not entitled to file the case as a pauper, but didn’t require him to pay the filing fees because the case was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

February has not been a good month for The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt. Yesterday, we celebrated the fourth anniversary of his filing of LOLsuit III: The Search for Schlock. Today, it’s the third anniversary of his filing the first amended complaint in LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler. I posted his amended complaint in this INMTUYK.

The Cabin Boy™ actually filed this—

Portions of the exhibits have been redacted because they contain material that is unsuitable for this blog.

The exhibits he attached put the transcripts of his skits that some consider to be kiddie porn in the court record. That placed the texts in the public domain. It also authenticated his authorship of them.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Four years ago today, Bill Schmalfeldt filed LOLsuit III: The Search for Schlock in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. I took notice of his action in a post titled In Re a LOLsuit.

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt is at it again.

He has also filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis.

I do not plan to make any substantive comment on this suit until I have thoroughly reviewed the complaint.

* * * * *

Now that the suit is long dead, I’ll offer this comment: Bwahahahahahahahahahah!

Although the suit could have been dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted, the judge didn’t have to get that far into the complaint. TDPS had filed in the wrong court, so the case was kicked for lack of jurisdiction. That led the Cabin Boy™ to file LOLsuit IV: The Voyage to Oblivion in the Circuit Court for Howard County, Maryland. Although that suit could have been dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted, the judge didn’t have to get that far into the complaint. Schmalfeldt had filed his state complaint in the wrong county, so the suit was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

The Cabin Boy™ left me out of his lawfare attempts until he got around to filing LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina. Although the suit could have been dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted, the judge didn’t have to get that far into the complaint. The judge found that … wait for it … the court lacked personal jurisdiction over any of the defendants, so the case was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

It was three years ago today that the Maryland Court of Special Appeals affirmed the judgment of the Montgomery Circuit Court granting the defendants in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit summary judgment of five counts of the suit and a directed verdict on the two counts that went to trial. After hearing the good news, I posted A Pair of Thank Youes.

* * * * *

A great many people are due my thanks for help that came in many forms while I have been dealing with the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. Two people deserve special thanks.

Ken White, aka Popehat, blogged about the lawsuit and put up the Popehat Signal alerting lawyers to my need for pro bono assistance. Thank you, Ken.

Patrick Ostronic answered the Popehat Signal and represented me during the trial and the appeal. He also represented Aaron Walker and Stacy McCain during the trial and Stacy during the appeal. Thank you, Patrick.

The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. case was the first of four LOLsuits The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin filed against me. He lost every one as he also lost all the other LOLsuits he filed against my forty-plus codefendants. He’s also lost all the other LOLsuits he’s filed since 2012, including cases against, Home Depot and Senators McConnell and Grassley.

Brett Kimberlin has been no more successful at lawfare than he was at drug smuggling or bombings.

UPDATE—Patrick Ostronic also successfully represented me in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) LOLsuit.

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has a history of playing games with service of court papers and then seeking default judgments against his law fare victims. The incident chronicled in this post titled 29 ≠ 20 from five years ago today is an example.

* * * * *

Yesterday, a picture appeared on the Interwebz of what is purported to be the envelope returned to The Dread Pirate Kimberlin of his attempt to serve some court papers on me. Here is the image as it was posted on Twitter. I have not bothered to redact it, but have left it as published by TDPK.BfLYKWsCMAANv2jIt appears to be addressed to 29 Ridge Road. I live at 20 Ridge Road. No wonder the Post Office found it to be “Undeliverable as Addressed.” No wonder the clerks at the Westminster Post Office couldn’t find mail being held for 20 Ridge Road.Tracking

Team Kimberlin’s LOLsuits have all failed because of a mixture of incompetence and bad faith. The post titled And In Other Legal News … which ran three years ago today contains a court filing that is one of the best summaries of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s bad faith.
