Brett Kimberlin was rarely consistent with the legal theories behind his various LOLsuits or the “facts” he offered to support them. Indeed, during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. state case, different judges heard the various pretrial hearing, and Kimberlin would tell different, and sometimes contradictory, stories to different judges. The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with two cases where Kimberlin relied on opposite legal theories.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s understanding of the law depends of the situation in which he finds himself. For example, consider the effect of having a criminal charge dropped (or nolle prossed) by a prosecutor. When he’s the one who was charged, dropping the charge does not mean that no malicious prosecution occurred. At least, that what seems to be his understanding as shown in his appeal brief to the Court of Special Appeals in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit.BK_CoSA_Brief

OTOH, when he’s a defendant in a civil suit alleging malicious prosecution, the opposite is true. At least, that seems to be the plain meaning of this from his motion for a new judge in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.BK_TK Mot4NewJudgeBrett Kimberlin is about to have his own pleadings used as evidence against him.

Stay tuned.

I found it amusing that Kimberlin claimed that Aaron Walker and I have raised “thousands of dollars from gullible readers.” Perhaps he is jealous because his online fundraising has been a bust.

I don’t know about Aaron’s blog, but Hogewash! has been modestly successful. The Tip Jar, The Hogewash Store, and the Amazon links have been modestly profitable almost every year since 2013. Thank you, Gullible Gentle Readers.

The real underlying basis for Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare against people reporting truthful things about him and his activities was his butthurt over being exposed for who he is. The TKPOTD for eight years ago offered him some relief.

* * * * *

PreparationH96ctJudge Grimm does not seem inclined to provide any temporary relief for The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s butthurt. He has denied TDPK’s request for file a sanctions motion against the lawyer representing Twitchy. However, Amazon offers this remedy—

* * * * *

Of course, butthurt is not a proper cause of action for a civil suit, so The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuits were doomed from the start.

Back in 2017, Bill Schmalfeldt had worn out his welcome in Wisconsin and had moved back to his home town in Iowa. He managed to get a driver’s license and bought himself a beater. It appears that he managed to ruin a couple tires by running up against a curb. The TKPOTD for five years ago today dealt with the false narrative he tired to spin about the result of his poor driving.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ continues to make a fool of himself.He keeps throwing stuff at the wall, and nothing sticks.

His $465 “vandalism” won’t result in a felony warrant. Criminal mischief causing less than $500 damage is a misdemeanor in Iowa.

Of course, I don’t believe the Cabin Boy™ filed a police report, but if he did, IA Code 718.6 raises some interesting possibilities.

UPDATE—I see from the Comment Section that the Cabin Boy™ has tweeted a selfie that includes a business card from a policeman, and that card appears to have a case number written on it. I suppose that means that the Cabin Boy™ is even more foolish than I thought, and he really did file a police report. (I really need to stop giving him the benefit of the doubt concerning intelligence or wisdom.)

*yawn*

If past is prologue, he’s probably all spun up about seeing the full weight of the law coming down on his enemies. We’ve seen this before.

So not everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. The Cabin Boy™ is exceeding my expectations for stupidity.

I need another cup of coffee.

Brett Kimberlin fancies himself as being on the very high end of the intelligence scale. The TKPOTD for five years ago today dealt with on his more stupid lies.

* * * * *

Not only is The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin a bad liar, he’s a stupid one. He included this whopper in his appeal in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals of the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) RICO Retread LOLsuit.

It’s trivially easy to show that he misrepresented what happened in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuit in federal court. A quick check of the online docket of that case in PACER shows that I filed a reply to TDPK’s “Omnibus Opposition” to the motions to dismiss from the multiple defendants. The following appears near the bottom of page 2 of my reply (ECF No. 236)—The Gentle Reader can click here to read my reply and see that I spent three pages dealing with TDPK’s failure to respond to the points related to res judicata I raised in my motion to dismiss. Not only did I raise res judicata in the federal case, I pounded the point heavily.

Why did Kimberlin make such a transparently false claim? Did he think that I wouldn’t remember raising res judicata in the federal case? Did he think that I wouldn’t provide copies of my federal filings to my counsel and the other appellees in the case? Did he think he wouldn’t get called out in one or more of our reply briefs? Has he never seen a picture of one those coffee mugs?

Moreover, he’s wrong on the law. Some defenses are waived if they are not raised in the answer to a lawsuit. However, neither the RICO Madness LOLsuit nor any of TDPK’s subsequent lawfare made it past motions to dismiss, so none of them had to be answered. None of the cases progressed far enough for a defense to have been waived, so it doesn’t matter whether any defendant raised res judicata in the federal case at the motion to dismiss stage. Thus, Kimberlin has been caught telling a needless lie that wouldn’t have supported his appeal if it had been true.

Brett Kimberlin has had a couple of appeals going in the Seventh Circuit attempting to overturning some of his Speedway Bombing convictions. The first appeal has been denied. He has filed his brief in the remaining appeal, and the Department of Justice has filed its brief as well. Kimberlin’s reply brief was due on 28 March, but he has filed a motion for an extension of time until 11 April.

The court has granted his request.

Bill Schmalfeldt’s empty threats on the direst of dire direness have been a staple of Team Kimberlin’s failed lawfare. This Legal LULZ Du Jour was published just after midnight six years ago today.

28 U.S.C. § 1400(a) states:

Civil actions, suits, or proceedings arising under any Act of Congress relating to copyrights or exclusive rights in mask works or designs may be instituted in the district in which the defendant or his agent resides or may be found.

IIRC, Sarah Palmer lives in the Middle District of North Carolina. I’m reasonably sure she can’t be found in Milwaukee. The Cabin Boy™ will have to file in Greensboro to sue her.

* * * * *

It didn’t take long for the Cabin Boy™ to start backpedaling. Before a quarter past ten that morning, I was reporting that Another One Bites the Dust.

* * * * *

So with a likely total recovery of no more than $0.15 instead of $150,000 times dozens of images and the necessity of filing his next LOLsuit in North Carolina, the Cabin Boy™ has done the math and determined that a $400 filing fee and several possible trips to Greensboro make his threatened copyright LOLsuit an economic loser.Cheddar201602190618Zmovie popcornI wonder what his next form of self-inflicted damage will be?
