Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has made almost all of his false statements about me in court filings because statements made in that context are privileged and can’t form the basis of a claim for defamation. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today was a fishing of one set of claims he made in the first RICO LOLsuit that include me as a defendant.

* * * * *

In the Second Amended Complaint of his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has accused me of the following:

From paragraph 76: Virtually every time Plaintiff appears in Court, Defendants Walker and Hoge have stalked him, and Plaintiff fears that Defendant Walker will assault him again. Both Defendants Walker and Hoge constantly write blog posts, some with photos of their shots at the shooting range, stating how they are armed and dangerous and will not hesitate to use their weapons against Plaintiff. Plaintiff has witnessed Defendants Walker, Akbar, McCain, Frey and Hoge attack anyone online who questions their conduct, and at least one reporter has received many death threats after writing about the Defendants.

<fisking>In July, 2013, TDPK tried to have Aaron Walker and me ejected from a courtroom where a set of peace order and protective order hearings to which he was a party were about to begin. Judge Mitchell informed him that we were entitled to be at an open court session.

I’ve never threatened violence to anyone on this blog. I don’t intend to.

If someone has received a death threat, TDPK should make sure that it has been reported to an appropriate law enforcement agency.</fisking>

From paragraph 77: Defendants Akbar, Hoge, Walker, Thomas aka KimberlinUnmasked and McCain have continued to defame and publicly attack Plaintiff after the filing of this Complaint with thousands of tweets and blog posts falsely calling Plaintiff a swatter and stating that he caused Defendant Walker’s termination.

<fisking>I have reviewed every reference to SWATing published here at Hogewash!, and I cannot find a single instance where I have called TDPK a SWATter. I have referred to his involvement in Aaron Walker’s losing his job. BTW, that came up as in the state case, and TDPK was not able to show that what Aaron’s claims is false. Collateral estoppel should apply to any RICO Madness claim relating to Aaron’s firing.</fisking>

From paragraph 80: Defendants Walker, Hoge, Frey and Stranahan condemned Judge Vaughey online which resulted in the judge being targeted by having his home phone number and address posted online, causing the head of courthouse security to provide special security for him. Defendants Walker and Hoge called on their followers to contact Montgomery County States Attorney John McCarthy and demand that he arrest and prosecute Plaintiff based on their false narratives. In March 2013, Defendants Hoge, Walker, McCain and Stranahan launched “Everyone Blog About Howard County (Maryland) State’s Attorney Day,” which resulted in threats by phone and email to the State’s Attorney over a period of several weeks.

<fisking>TDPK can show no causal relationship between my criticism of Judge Vaughey’s decision to ignore a Supreme Court precedent and grant an unconstitutional peace order and any alleged actions that might have been taken by third parties. I have never contacted State’s Attorney McCarthy demanding TDPK’s arrest. I have asked why the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office has ignored Brett Kimberlin’s blatant perjury, but I have never received a reply. The Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office has never confirmed to me that they received any threats as a result of Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office Day.</fisking>

From paragraph 138: On June 8, 2012, Defendant Hoge, who lives in Maryland, wrote a letter to a Congressman in Maryland and imputed that Plaintiff was involved with swattings, that he should be investigated by the FBI and sent to prison. Defendant Hoge published that letter along with a blog post.

<fisking>Yes, I wrote a letter to Congressman Van Hollen. It doesn’t say anything about the FBI, and it doesn’t accuse TDPK of SWATting. Even if the letter were defamatory, and it isn’t, the statute of limitations on defamation had run out by the time TDPK filed his lawsuit.</fisking>

From paragraph 139: Since the filing of the original complaint in this case, Defendant Hoge has published hundreds of blog posts and tweets defaming Plaintiff and accusing him of crime after crime. In fact, the majority of his Hogewash.com blog is dedicated to attacking, cyber stalking and harassing Plaintiff, his family and anyone who supports Plaintiff, including reporters, judges and prosecutors.

<fisking>This blog brings up Brett Kimberlin or one of his associates every day and will continue to do so until he has been brought to justice. Hogewash! has never attacked members of his family, legitimate reporters, judges, or prosecutors.</fisking>

From paragraph 143: Defendants McCain, Walker, Frey, Stranahan, Hoge, DB Capitol Strategies, and Akbar raised and continue to raise money on their websites based on their false narrative about the swattings.

<fisking>As mentioned above, Hogewash! has never accused TDPK of SWATting, but the Gentle Reader should feel free to hit the Tip Jar anyway.</fisking>

From paragraph 156: These Defendants, including Malkin, Hoge, Walker, Ace, Thomas, McCain, Akbar and Frey, egg on their commenters and ask them to get involved, post comments and tweets, demand that Plaintiff be investigated and incite their readers to engage in vigilante action directed at Plaintiff in Maryland.

<fisking>I do encourage the Gentle Readers to get involved. However, as I have said before, I am strictly opposed to any vigilante action directed toward Brett Kimberlin or any other member of Team Kimberlin.</fisking>

From paragraph 186: Other forms of retaliation were the battery of Plaintiff by Defendant Walker; the filing of false criminal charges, peace orders and frivolous civil suits against Plaintiff by Defendants Walker and Hoge; attempting to extort a settlement from Plaintiff in exchange for dismissing a malicious federal lawsuit by Defendants Walker, Backer and DBCapitol Strategies; publishing defamatory stories accusing Plaintiff of swatting; repeatedly threatening Plaintiff with imprisonment based on false narratives; and threatening Plaintiff’s family.

<fisking>TDPK’s allegation of battery was shown to be false over two years ago. He should give it a rest. His thing about false charges, peace orders, and civil suits was found to be meritless by Judge McGann during the 1 July hearing. Collateral estoppel strikes again.</fisking>

From paragraph 249: Defendants Walker, Hoge, McCain and Ali have stalked Plaintiff in public places. Defendants Walker, Hoge and DB Capitol Strategies have filed numerous false criminal and civil actions against Plaintiff over a two-year period, all which have been dismissed or denied. Defendants Hoge, Walker and some of the other Defendants publish daily taunts against Plaintiff and mock this suit with daily posts on their blogs, and continually assert that they are going to get Plaintiff imprisoned. They have attacked Plaintiffs employer and those who donate to that non-profit The Defendants have tried to get Plaintiff fired. They have attacked Plaintiffs wife and teenage daughter and even reporters who have written favorably about Plaintiff. They have even attacked prosecutors who have refused their frivolous charges, Defendant Walker has even imputed in a recent blog post that Plaintiffs teenage daughter is fair game for destruction because of “corruption of blood.”

<fisking>This blog has never attacked any member of Brett Kimberlin’s family. It does engage in mocking him.</fisking>FrenchTaunt

That post was from 2014. In 2015, Tetyana Kimberlin filed the false Application for Statement of Charges alleging that I had harassed her older daughter. With that, Tetyana Kimberlin became an active member of Team Kimberlin, and I have written about her participation in her husband’s schemes.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of Brett Kimberlin’s corporate entities is called Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. It’s 501(c)(4) not-for-profit status was revoked by the IRS several years ago. Protect Our Elections, which is also registered as a trade name of Kimberlin’s Justice Through Music Project entity, has been involved in election-related activities, the exact nature of which are a bit unclear. Kimberlin has claimed under oath that he and his operation were involved with election security work with the Department of Justice during the 2016 election.

EMPR appears to stand of EuroMaidan PR, an English-language Ukrainian propaganda website. While the Mueller investigation was ongoing, Kimberlin ran a website promoting the Russian Dossier Hoax. Like so many of his web domains, it’s now long gone.

Protect Our Elections?

I noted a few weeks ago that Brett Kimberlin has retooled and reanimated a couple of this websites, jtmp dot org and protecourelections dot org. The DONATE and HOME pages appear to be actively maintained, but the bulk of the sites are well out of date. Consider the LEGISLATION page at the POE site.None of the bills discussed on the page are more recent than 2016. Several of the bills were sponsored by Keith Ellison, who is no longer a congresscritter. Another House bill was sponsored by Chris Van Hollen, who is no longer represents the district where Kimberlin lives. Van Hollen is now a senator.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has done many things that I have found disturbing, but the incident referenced in the TKPOTD for eight years ago today was among the worst I’ve witnessed.

* * * * *

I’ve been listening to the courtroom audio recordings as part of my preparation for the next part of my Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. in Review series. Since those recording are used to produce the trial transcript, they include the conversations between the judge and counsels at the bench. I could not hear them in the courtroom because a noise source is turned on by the judge to mask the conversations. Thursday evening was the first time that I became aware of the following:

Brett Kimberlin called his older daughter as a witness. He did so at the end of the presentation of his case. He tried to do so as his first witness, but our lawyer objected. During the interchange at the bench, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin said that he wanted her to testify to various things which the judge felt were inadmissible because her testimony would be hearsay. TDPK also said he wanted her to testify to the fact that he had not done anything untoward with her. That would have been admissible, but my lawyer agreed that we would stipulate that so there was no reason for her to be called. During the conference at the bench, Judge Johnson remarked,

To put your 15 year old daughter—talk about —talk about harm—to put a 15 year old kid in a courtroom in front of a jury and ask her questions about pedophilia!

Just before he called her, the judge called the counsel up to the bench and tried one more time to dissuade TDPK from calling his daughter.

THE COURT: You know the witness you really need?

KIMBERLIN: Huh?

THE COURT: Is your wife here?

KIMBERLIN: She’s, she’s packing. We’re leaving on vacation tomorrow—

THE COURT: Is she gonna testify? See, that’s —if she were going to testify, that would be one thing, but a 15 year old?

TDPK put her on the stand any way.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Yesterday, I noted the eighth anniversary of the directed verdict in the defendants’ favor in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit. Eight years ago today, I published a Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. in Review. I’ve reproduced it below.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin sued Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. His initial complaint was a laundry list of torts and several other bizarre claims that sought $1,000,000 in damages. Yesterday, he lost his case with respect to Aaron, Stacy, Ali, and me. Technically, the suit still survives against the two individuals that Kimberlin is currently accusing of being Kimberlin Unmasked, but based on what developed at this week’s trial, their defense would appear to be pretty solid and straightforward. Brett Kimberlin would be wise to drop his case against them.

Now that we’ve won, I’m going to tell you my side of the case. It’s a long and complicated story, requiring many posts.

During the first weekend of July, 2013, I got an email from a reader who had seen in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search database that Brett Kimberlin had filed for a protective order against his wife and had filed criminal charges against another individual. Maryland has two types of what are called “restraining orders” in other states. Peace orders are issued between unrelated persons. Protective orders are issued among family members, roommates, or other persons with close relationships. Given The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s history of seeking peace orders against the likes of Aaron Walker and John Norton, I wondered why he was seeking an order against his wife. So the following Monday, Aaron Walker and I went to one of District Courthouses in Montgomery County and witnessed the hearing.

I won’t rehearse all the details, but over the next few days, Mrs. Kimberlin approached me, and Aaron and I wound up helping her with her legal problems related to her husband. Shortly afterwards, TDPK sued us. One of the claims for defamation that he made was based on the fact that I suggested that Brett Kimberlin might be a pedophile. That suggestion was made after he had been charged with sexual offense in the third degree. While the State didn’t take the charges to trial, I believe Mrs. Kimberlin’s story.

In order to prove a defamation case in Maryland, the plaintiff must prove that what the defendant said or wrote was false. Brett Kimberlin could not do that. After putting his older daughter, Aaron, Ali, Stacy, and me on the stand, he had produced no evidence of falsity. He had no case. With the jury sent out of the courtroom, Judge Johnson incredulously asked him, “Is it your theory that you can come into court and say, “I was defamed,” and rest your case?” Because TDPK had offered no evidence for the jury to consider in its deliberation, the judge ruled that there was no case, and gave a verdict in favor of the Aaron, Stacy, Ali, and me as a matter of law.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed his suit on 30 August, 2013. He lost on 12 August, 2014. That makes 347 days that we defendants were subject to his vexatious nonsense. All that has cost TDPK is a sanction award of $600 to our lawyer—which he now late in paying. Or so he may think.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE—During her testimony, Miss Kimberlin was very supportive of her father. However, as the judge noted, being a good father would not disprove what we wrote about him.

* * * * *

Suing me was probably the dumbest mistake he made since he got out of jail, and Im not done with him yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for eight years ago today contained my thoughts as I prepared for the first day of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit is scheduled to go to trial at 9:30 this morning in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. When you cut through all the bullshit in The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s complaint, what the suit boils down to is this—Brett Kimberlin haz sad because a bunch of mean bloggers said truthful things about him and wouldn’t shut up when he said so.

His suit is 100-%-pure, unadulterated anti-First-Amendment shutuppery. TDPK will get his day (or two) in court. He’ll have his chance to convince a judge and jury that it’s defamatory to write accurately about his past, to report truthfully about his present activities, or to express an opinion about him based on what was learned in that reporting. He will have to prove that what we wrote was false and that either we knew it was false or we wrote with a reckless disregard for the truth. He will have to present evidence to that effect, and he doesn’t have any—which is just the beginning of the problems TDPK faces.

I don’t expect the process to be pleasant, but I do expect that my codefendants and I will come out of it as the winners.

Pray for justice.

UPDATE—This seems to be all Team Kimberlin has left.TK201408110033Z

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Two of the four of the LOLsuits Brett Kimberlin filed against me were federal RICO suits. I’ve generally referred to first suit as the RICO Madness LOLsuit and the second as RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit. However, they weren’t the first RICO suit Kimberlin ever filed. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today was about his first RICO case.

* * * * *

DredPedoKmbrlnIn his biography of Brett Kimberlin, Mark Singer discusses the pornography business that Kimberlin ran while he was in prison selling porn to other inmates. On p. 203 of Citizen K, he describes how the business ended after he lost his original connection and tried a new source.

In January 1987, in a federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, Kimberlin sued Crest Paragon Productions, alleging false advertising, breach of contract, mail fraud, conspiracy, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). According to the complaint, instead of the thirty magazines and sixteen books Kimberlin expected when he responded to a back-of-the-book advertisement placed by Crest Paragon, he was sent “fifteen pamphlets and three paperback books of low quality.”

Though Kimberlin felt conflicted because “I could have made a fortune on that stuff inside prison if it wasn’t contraband,” mainly he felt compelled to sue. He asked for compensatory and punitive damages totaling $150,000.

The Gentle Reader will probably not be surprised to learn that the case was thrown out of court.

* * * * *

That zeroth RICO case was no more successful than the three he filed in the 21st century. None of his RICO claims every survived a motion to dismiss, and none of his other claims survived summary judgment. In fact, the third case this century was dismissed by the judge on his own before any summons were issued to defendants.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin has been seeking to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions overturned. Both the U. S. District Court in Indianapolis and the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled against him, so he is appealing to the Supreme Court.

Neal Katyal is the lawyer representing Brett Kimberlin in that appeal. Katyal asked for and was given until 6 August to file a petition for a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court. Because the 6th was a Saturday, he actually has until today to file. It may take a few days for the Clerk to process all the paperwork and get the petition on the docket.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin never seems to have figured out how to make a well-structured, convincing argument supported by evidence. One of the reasons he lost the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit was that he never succeeded in introducing any authenticated evidence that supported his claims.

OTOH, he made unforced errors in other cases that wound up authenticating the evidence against him. The TKPOTD for five years ago today was about one such admission.

* * * * *

I’ve been reviewing the documents produced by the Kimberlins during discovery in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. One of them is a copy of a post from Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread titled Lee Stranahan and Aaron Walker Smear A Teenager’s Family And Try To Snuff Out Her Career. The post was originally published on 29 August, 2013, just after The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had filed his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit and just after the Montgomery County State’s Attorney had dropped the first set of false criminal charges Kimberlin filed against Aaron and me. I was not surprised to find that the post is now missing from the Interwebz. I was surprised that TDPK would consider putting it into evidence.

You see, the post contains evidence that is part of the proof that the tweets TDPK attempted to use as evidence in his 2015 peace order petition are forgeries. By offering the post in discovery, he has authenticated it.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

It wasn’t the Speedway Bombings that first brought Brett Kimberlin to national attention. It was the claim he made just before the 1988 elections that he had been Dan Quayle’s dope dealer. The TKPOTD for nine years ago today dealt with Mark Singer’s conclusion about the truth of Kimberlin’s story.

* * * * *

handrolled2Mark Singer investigated Brett Kimberlin’s claims to a have sold marijuana to Dan Quayle. On p. 337 of Citizen K he writes that

I spent four years asking questions about Kimberlin, and along the way I never met a soul who could offer genuine corroboration of the fable that brought him to my attention in the first place.

* * * * *

Given subsequent information that has been published here at Hogewash! and at other venues, it seems clear that Kimberlin was lying.

A couple of the Kimberlin-related websites have start posting new material. So how are jtmp dot org and protectourelections dot org doing? Are they attracting new clicks? Here’s how some of the current sites are doing in the online ratings.The top rated site appear sot be itstime2020 dot org, an anti-Trump campaign site that was abandoned a couple of months before the 2020 election.

In late July, 2013, Tetyana Kimberlin filed an Application for Statement of Charges against Brett Kimberlin, alleging that he had had sexual intercourse with her in Maryland before her 16th birthday. He was charged with 3rd Degree Sexual Offense (what most states would call statutory rape), but the charge was dropped when she later said she would not testify.

That’s not the only story involving Brett Kimberlin and an underage girl. The TKPOTD for nine years ago cites an excerpt from Mark Singer’s Citizen K.

* * * * *

DredPedoKmbrlnThis passage begins on p. 81 of Mark Singer’s Citizen K. The Gentle Reader might want to see how many familiar themes it contains.

The morning of June 26, Judith Johnson continued in her statement to the police, she had another surprise visitor.

“Brett C. Kimberlin came to our office. He came into my office and closed the door, talked very low, was nervous, introduced himself as living with Sandra Barton, 68 POC #A, and stated he had lived there for a good many years. He told me that his girlfriend’s mother was harassing them, that she hated him and their situation (living there with her daughter and grandchildren) … he said that Mrs. Barton’s mother was insane and that he wanted them to get away from here but that Mrs Barton was afraid of her mother and would not stand up to her.”

“He wanted me to evict them so it would be a good reason for them to have to move away and therefore Mrs. Scyphers would believe them and think they had to move and were not just getting away from her. I told him that I couldn’t evict Mrs. Barton for something like that. He then told me that the apartment was destroyed due to Mrs. Barton having 4-6 animals, that the odor was very bad and that sometimes he had to step out on the patio in warm weather. He said the carpet was ruined. I advised him that I would have it inspected. If it was true and was this dirty we would ask her to move. He agreed. We also discussed the date and arrived at 8/1/78.”

On a three-by-five index card, the detective from the Speedway Police Department who interviewed Judith Johnson—the interview took place 3 August 1978—recorded the following quotation from her, separate from her signed statement: “Brett Kimberlin had vengeance on his face when he talked about Mrs. Scyphers. He radiated hatred.”

Mrs. Scypher’s was murdered on 29 July, 1978.

* * * * *

I found the image above on the Internet shortly after Brett Kimberlin was charged, and I used it to illustrate several post. Kimberlin tried to use it as evidence against me in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit, but he was unable to find a way to get it authenticated and admitted into evidence.

Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not be weary in doing good, for we will reap in due season, if we don’t give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let’s do what is good toward all men, and especially toward those who are of the household of the faith.

These comments from the original post are some of the milder mockery—

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Back in September, 2013, Brett Kimberlin was just getting started establishing himself as what Stacy McCain calls The World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™. At that point, Kimberlin had failed in his attempts to get a couple of peace orders, but he hadn’t yet lost any of the defamation LOLsuits that included me as among the defendants.

He’d filed a couple of false Applications for Statement of Charges against Aaron Walker and me, but they had been quickly killed off for lack of evidence. On 3 September, Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread published a prediction that a LOLsuit was in the works.Of course, Matt Osborne’s predictions of the direst of dire direness ware (like the real Criswell’s) almost completely wrong.

The one thing that he got right was that we would engage in fund raising to help defray the cost of out defense. Although we had pro bono representation by Patrick Ostronic (Thank you, sir!), we still had several thousand dollars of costs related to copying, court fees, etc. (Thank you to those who helped!)

The worst mistake Kimberlin ever made was including we as a defendant in those cases.

Even the Sore Loserman’s wrongheaded theories of copyright law won’t permit him to send a lawful notice relating to the image above.

UPDATE—Maybe he should get some more advice from the guys at Acme.

Meep, meep.

UPDATE 2—The reader who created the original parody image has emailed me:

As is noted in Wikipedia, “Jabba the Hutt’s image has since played an influential role in popular culture, particularly in the United States. The name is used as a satirical literary device and a political caricature to underscore negative qualities such as morbid obesity and corruption.”

There are parallels between Team Kimberlin and Jabba the Hut’s crew. Mainly the vile nature of their activities, the decline of their social morality, and whether or not Mr. Schmalfelt ever really had a neck.

This is why “The Hutt” was chosen. It was a cultural metaphor for Mr. Schmalfelt and in large part, Team Kimberlin. They debase themselves by their very existence. They’re a cosmic joke. An accident. They should never have happened, but they did. Like the “Island of misfit psychopaths and malignant narcissists,” they somehow found each other. And we are all the worse for it. The world is the worse for it.

However, I still have the right to criticize their psychological deficiencies.

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin became less and less successful as his campaign of lawfare went forward. The Kimberlin v. Walker,, et al. LOLsuit, the first of four to include me among the defendants, was the only one that actually made it to trial, and most of it was killed off at summary judgment. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today dealt with Kimberlin’s inept handling of the discovery phase of that case.

I mentioned a few days ago that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s response to our discovery requests in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit was underwhelming. Based on the staggering lack of evidence, the lawyer representing Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and me has filed a second set of motions for summary judgment on the two counts that survived the 1 July hearing. Of course, TDPK has filed an opposition to our motions.BK v AW 2013 Op2MSJ-1TDPK is dead wrong about res judicata being applicable. Res judicata only applies to final dispositions of matters. There has been no final disposition of the surviving defamation and false light counts in the lawsuit. There won’t be until either they are dismissed with prejudice or one side wins at trial. Judge McGann denied our first motions on those counts in order to give TDPK one last chance to allege a set of facts to support his case. The judge told him that if he didn’t do so, it was likely that he’d face another motion for summary judgment.

Now it might just be … that the defense then will re-file another motion for summary judgment on the remaining two counts, depending on what he gets.

Kimberlin v. Walker, et al., 380966 V, 1 July, 2014, Transcript at 52.

res_judicata_mugsThe hearing on our motions is scheduled for 7 August. If things go well, that will be the end of the case. Otherwise, we will go to trial on 11 August.

BTW, all sorts of nifty Res Judicata stuff is for sale over at The Hogewash Store.

Maryland courts seem to be prejudiced against granting summary judgments. The fact that five of seven claims were nuked should have been a warning to Kimberlin about how weak his case was. When he rested his case at the trial, Judge Johnson stopped the trial and granted a verdict in favor of the defendants because Kimberlin had failed to show any evidence (“not a scintilla”) to support his claims.

Almost a year before the trial, I warned Kimberlin that if he didn’t drop the suit before my lawyer had to make an appearance in the case, that he was in for the fight of his life. I adopted the saying Murum Aries Attigit as a motto.

I’m not done with him yet.
