Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


A newcomer to this blog might wonder why I write about Brett Kimberlin and his compatriots. This post, which was first published as the TKPOTD a year ago today, provides a bit of an explanation.

* * * * *

I started this blog to write about things that interest me, and one of those topics is issues relating to the First Amendment. That interest led me to participate in the Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day blogburst back in 2012, and that, in turn, led to my focus on Brett Kimberlin and his associates.

Kimberlin has tried to use the force of the government in the form of nuisance lawsuits and false criminal complaints to suppress truthful reporting about his past and present activities, but that has not been his sole tool in his campaign of brass knuckles reputation management. Team Kimberlin has also engaged in various forms of online harassment, much of which has been perpetrated by Bill Schmalfeldt.

When anyone has taken steps to hold Schmalfeldt accountable for his actions, he has replied with failed legal actions, false DMCA takedown notices, and blustery threats.

It’s been over three-and-a-half years since that threat, and the only times law enforcement has been to my house since I started this blog were to investigate an attempted break-in and to take a complaint against Schmalfeldt for failure to obey a peace order. I seem to be in full control of this blog as I have been since Day One.

Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for news in the pending Team-Kimberlin-related court cases.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

At least one of the pending court cases has been finished since that was originally posted. Bill Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact( in which I was one of the defendants) was dismissed by the U. S. District Court for the District of South Carolina.

Team Kimberlin has maintained their perfect record by losing everything they’ve filed since the beginning of 2012.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Dead Horse Du Jour


The Cabin Boy™ apparently doesn’t know The First Rule of Holes, i.e., when your in over your head, stop digging.fmp201701300030It’s been suggested to me that his continuing rant about plagiarism is a crackpot scheme aimed at creating a defense to the defamation claim in the lawsuit I’ve filed against him. The theory is that he’s trying to completely destroy his own credibility so that he can claim that since no one believes anything he says, his ravings can’t cause damage and, therefore, can’t be defamatory. I’m not sure I buy that. It’s too complicated even for one of the Cabin Boy’s™ harebrained schemes.

OTOH, it seems that even the Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread server doesn’t pay him any attention. Here’s where the link in his tweet goes—bu20170129

Hoge v Kimberlin, et al. Progress Report


Bill Schmalfeldt has been served in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, and he served this Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction on me on 9 April.

This morning, I filed this opposition to his motion.

My opposition speaks for itself, so I do not plan to make any further public comment on this matter until the court has ruled on Schmalfeldt’s motion.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Bill Schmalfeldt has a post up at the St. Francis edition of правда in which he states that I have lied under oath. Since that is a public accusation of perjury and since I have not lied under oath, his statement is defamatory. I’m already suing him for defamation, so I suppose this means that he’s decided to double down. Still, a professional journalist would want to correct such an error and would certainly issue a retraction and an apology.

Given the recent news from Oregon, I thought it would be a good idea to recycle this post from 27 June, 2013. The original nrawatch dot org site is now defunct

Part of Brett Kimberlin’s personal puffery is his claim to have circulated lots of petitions that have received lots and lots of signatures.

Uh, huh.

On 6 May, 2013, one of Velvet Revolution US’s subsidiary efforts called NRA Watch (No, I won’t link to it) posted this link to a petition. (Note: The link in the image below isn’t live.)nrawatchPetition1

If the link were live, clicking on it would show you this.nrawatchPetition2

nrawatchPetition3The petition isn’t doing so well. As of 3 pm yesterday, it only had 15 signatures. That’s fewer than one for every three days that the petition has been up at Change dot org. Of course, Brett Kimberlin didn’t post this petition himself. He delegated the work to Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt who has a track record of getting things started only to abandon them. If Kimberlin were serious, he should have picked someone with some stick-to-it-iveness.

Say, here’s another interesting thing to note. The Cabin Boy gives the impression with his petition that he thinks firearms are something to be taken seriously.GE

Yeah. Right.

Things Will Stay on Schedule


Bill Schmalfeldt filed a motion asking for a delay in the Circuit Court hearing for my peace order petition scheduled for next week.

<sarc>When I received the copy of the motion he sent me, I was concerned that it might be a forgery because the envelope bore the postmark of the same post office used to mail me the January letter he has been going on and on about.</sarc>M4D EnvelopeTo be on the safe side I filed an opposition to the motion, …

… and when the situation changed, I filed this addendum also.

It turned out that I didn’t need to file the opposition. The court rejected the motion on technical grounds the day before I filed my opposition.

The case will proceed on schedule.
