Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Hogewash! hasn’t been the only blog that has engaged in pointage, laughery, and mockification inspired by members of Team Kimberlin. Five years ago today, I posted this link to The Further Adventures of …

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


In the early days of Team Kimberlin’s attempts at online harassment, their tactics often involved Cybersquatting and Cyberstalking. This post from seven years ago described part of what they were up to.

* * * * *

Cybersquatting, according to the United States federal law known as the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(d), includes using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. The sharp-eyed Gentle Reader will notice the ™ symbol next to the Hogewash! logo in the site banner. The Fine Print for this site provides this notice:

Hogewash! and hogewash.com are trademarks owned by W. J. J. Hoge.

The hogwash dot net website is an example of a cybersquatting. It isn’t a parody so much as an attempt to use the goodwill of the Hogewash! trademark to provide a benefit for someone not entitled to use the mark.

OK, so why haven’t I taken action against that site?

The principal reason is that the person creating the site is actually giving my lawyer information that is helpful to me in a legal matter. Another reason is that I believe the material on that site is so outlandish and offensive as to do more damage to the site’s operator than to me.

In any case, I reserve the right to file a complaint either via ICANN or the courts if I choose.

Let’s move on to cyberstalking. Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet or other electronic means to stalk or harass someone. Stalking is a crime in Maryland. Some people think that the Maryland law requires the act of following someone around and that a homebound invalid really couldn’t be a stalker.

They’re wrong.

In Hackley v. State, 866 A.2d 906 (2005), the Court of Appeals (Maryland’s highest court) ruled

… that the General Assembly did not intend the stalking statute’s requirement of a “malicious course of conduct that includes approaching or pursuing another person” to be limited to conduct that is done in the victim’s actual physical presence and with the victim’s concurrent awareness.

Md. Criminal Law § 3-802 defines stalking as

[A] malicious course of conduct that includes approaching or pursuing another where the person intends to place or knows or reasonably should have known the conduct would place another in reasonable fear:
(1) (i) of serious bodily injury;
(ii) of an assault in any degree;
(iii) of rape or sexual offense as defined by §§ 3-303 through 3-308 of this title or attempted rape or sexual offense in any degree;
(iv) of false imprisonment; or
(v) of death; or

—and this bit is often overlooked—

(2) that a third person likely will suffer any of the acts listed in item (1) of this subsection.

Yep. In Maryland, it is possible to stalk someone by stalking someone else, a provision intended to allow a parent or spouse to seek protection because someone is stalking a family member (for example.)

The Court interpreted “includes” to mean “this is an example that doesn’t rule out others.” It upheld Hackley’s conviction which was based on his delivering messages to where his victim might find them. The Legislature has since revised the statute without correcting the Court’s interpretation.

Given that precedent, it’s possible that a Maryland court could find a person who delivered threats of the sort listed in § 3-802 via the Internet to be guilty of stalking.

UPDATE—I see that Team Kimberlin has already been in touch with their legal advisor at Acme.TK20130723

They are entitled to their opinion, but I’ll stick with the fact that the U. S. Patent & Trademark Office says that federal registration of a trademark is not required. As the Harvard Law webpage cited in the attempted comment notes:

Assuming that a trademark qualifies for protection, rights to a trademark can be acquired in one of two ways: (1) by being the first to use the mark in commerce; or (2) by being the first to register the mark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“PTO”).

[My emphasis.] While registration does offer some legal advantages by providing a presumption that the mark is valid, prior use in the marketplace will usually defeat a registration. The Hogewash! trademark has been in continuous use by this website since 24 July, 2011.

UPDATE 2—At 11:57 am ET (15:57 GMT on the time stamp), Bill Schmalfeldt sent the following tweet:RadioWMS201307231601Z

I just reread my post, and I can’t find where I say I am suing anyone. In fact, I explain why I’m not suing anyone. Other than by accident or mistake, does Bill Schmalfeldt ever tell the truth?

* * * * *

My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has referred to Bill Schmalfeldt as a deranged cyberstalker. Ken White (aka Popehat) has called Schmalfeldt a demented freak. Rather that choose, I believe this is a case where I can embrace the power of AND.

Also, not only were Team Kimberlin inept at these and other forms of cyberbullying, they failed when they tried construct cases to frame Aaron Walker or me with cyberstalking charges.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This TKPOTD from seven years ago today shows that Bill Schmalfeldt knew exactly who he was involved with when he joined Team Kimberlin.

The “news” Bill Schmalfeldt “reported” when associated with such Team Kimberlin outlets as Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Bill Boy Unread was the sort of lies that would even embarrass … oh, never mind.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The never-ending parade of silly mistakes made by The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt in their various LOLsuits have yielded a gold mine of pointage, laughery, and mockification. Here are some bits from the TKPOTD, a Legal LULZ Du Jour, and a Bonus Legal LULZ Du Jour from four years ago today.

* * * * *

I’ve been rereading some of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s recent filings in the five active lawsuits in which he is a party. (BTW, four are LOLsuits he’s filed against me.) His writing is becoming … how to put this? … wilder and more full of stupid errors and omissions. I just finished reviewing something from one of the state cases, and its fatal error is both obvious and quite stunning. I won’t write about that mistake here because it’s the judge’s job to educate the midget on this one.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has a DOOM CLOCK running over at his Derp Brain Radio website (No, I won’t link to it.) that shows 32 days remaining for the return of waiver of service forms he says he’s sent to the defendants in LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler.

Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(3) says—

A defendant who, before being served with process, timely returns a waiver need not serve an answer to the complaint until 60 days after the request was sent[.]

Even if the waiver request forms had been sent the day the LOLsuit was filed, there would still be 54 days remaining for the defendants to respond. But I suppose following the Rules is hypertechnical. And math is hard.

UPDATE—Or perhaps it means that the Cabin Boy™ is exercising his option to allow at least 30 days but less than 60 days for the return of the waiver forms. Whatever. Setting the minimum time for return of the waiver forms won’t change when any answers or dispositive motions are due.

popcorn4bkUPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has a post up “correcting” this one. I checked his “correction” with a lawyer, and I’ll wait for Schmalfeldt to find out the hard way how wrong he is.

Oh, and I see from his post that he’s still too afraid to include me in his LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Cabin Boy™ has yet another post up over at his Derp Brain Radio website (No, I won’t link to it.) in which he demonstrates his poor reading comprehension and his poor knowledge of the legal resources I have at hand. Given his track record, it’s possible that he has come up with a novel way to screw up service of process. We shall see.

popcorn4bkAs I noted earlier today, The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s fear of having to face me in court will keep me out of LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler, at least for the nonce, and I expect that the amended complaint [redacted]. All this means is that he’s surrendered his chance to control the actual venue after [redacted]. Meanwhile, I get to sit on the sidelines and point and laugh.

Heh.

* * * * *

Tomorrow is Christmas Day, and this feature will take the day off.

So head out to the store to finish your shopping (or pickup more popcorn), enjoy the holiday, and …

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Yes, Merry Christmas, everyone!

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s been a year since anything new has been posted at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread.You know, I kinda miss reading some of their outrageous forecasts of doom for me and other bloggers who had the temerity to write about The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se/Publisher Kimberlin. Perhaps the Gentle Reader will remember the pointage, laughery, and mockification that resulted from such silly posts as this—Meanwhile, this blog continues, and the former editor of BU is having a second winter vacation up north.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When I started this blog in 2011, I decided to blog openly. I put my name and contact information on the site. You can find it most easily here. Consequently, I’ve always laughed at Billl Schmalfeldt whenever he threatened to dox me. I’ve engaged in such pointage, laughery, and mockification several times, including this post from two years ago today called Cowardly Cowards Gotta Cower …

* * * * *

… and bluster and threaten. Like this—Let me save the Cabin Boy some bandwidth. My name can be found on the copyright notice appended to the site logo, and the rest of my contact information, including my home address and cell phone number, can be found on the DMCA tab in the menu just below the logo. If you want to know what stately Hoge Manor looks like, you can click here for a post that shows a picture Schmalfeldt has previously posted. If you need directions, click here.

If you call or email before you come, you’ll be met with coffee and snacks. Otherwise, …

The Gentle Reader may form his own opinion as to who is cowering.

Meanwhile, Big Bill Small has morphed into Rick St. Nick as he moves further toward a winter vacation at the North Pole.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


In a comment to last Friday’s TKPOTD, a certain cockroach suggested that Bill Schmalfeldt might want to review the statute of limitations in Maryland before returning to the state, It turns out that’s good advice. Consider this information in this post On the Use of Underage Images from five years ago today and the update that follows.

* * * * *

Last year, Bill Schmalfeldt photoshopped my face into a couple of pornographic homoerotic images which he published on the Internet. Those images and their publication formed part of the basis for the extension of the peace order against him that was issued last December.

One of the images of my face was lifted from a college year book picture. While the yearbook was published for my sophomore year, the picture may be a file photo that was actually been taken in autumn of 1965 during my freshman year. I turned 18 on 31 December, 1965.

Thus, it is possible that one of the pornographic images Schmalfeldt published contains a juvenile image of me.

* * * * *

It turns out that the picture of me that Schmalfeldt used was taken when I was still only 17.

Jeffrey Epstein was unavailable for comment, and he didn’t kill himself either.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Essentially all of Team Kimberlin’s attempts to use lawfare to punish their enemies have backfired since the beginning of 2012. However, some of the pushback against them have been successful. One of the earliest successes was the granting of a peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt as a result of his online harassment of me. That success led to yet another failure of Team Kimberlin’s lawfare. Rather than quietly accept his lose in court, Bill Schmalfeldt appealed that first peace order. Six years ago today, I ran this post titled #BillSchmalfeldt Thinks He’s Appealing.

* * * * *

The question to be decided is whether or not the Maryland Court of Appeals will agree.

I received a Notice of Appeal from Bill Schmalfeldt in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt peace order case.  I note that it was sent by Schmalfeldt himself and not a lawyer, so I suppose that means that he is proceeding pro se. I will be interested to see how well he does drafting his Petition for Writ of Certiorari to the Court of Appeals. My lawyer will, of course, be filing a Response, and we’ll see if the Court takes the case.

I doubt that Schmalfeldt has any real grounds for appeal. OTOH, the Court of Appeals might take the case in order to specifically clarify that electronic harassment is covered by the peace order statute.

Meanwhile, the Circuit Court’s order remains in effect.

UPDATE—Assuming the Court of Appeals takes the case, by the time certiorari is granted, briefs filed, and oral arguments heard, the Peace Order may have expired—making the case moot.

* * * * *

As the Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin for a while may remember, Schmalfeldt failed to obey that peace order. As a result, it was extended, so it was in force longe enough for the Court of Appeals to reject his appeal—not for mootness but for lack of merit.

Everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’ve spent a sizable portion of the past seven years dealing with absurd demands for various members of Team Kimberlin. Some of the sillies have come from The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt. The TKPOTD for four years ago today opened with ridicule of one of the Cabin Boy’s™ demands and also posted one of the motions to dismiss I filed in LOLsuit IV: The Voyage to Oblivion.

* * * * *

Now that so many other people are archiving his blogging, I no longer regularly read the Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt meanderings on his blog du jour. I’m told that he wants to charge me a license fee for using his name and and image in my reporting about him and his buddies with Team Kimberlin.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Before making such a foolish assertion, he should have talked to a lawyer who could have explained case law such as Lawrence v. A. S. Abell Co., 299 Md. 697 (1984) to him.

And in other news concerning the Cabin Boy™ …

Yesterday, I mailed a reply to his opposition to my motion to dismiss his current LOLsuit for improper venue to the court. I also served the Cabin Boy™ by mail.

The reply speaks for itself, and I do not intend to make any further substantive public statements about the motion until the court has ruled on it.

* * * * *

Because the judge found that Schmalfeldt had sued me in the wrong court, she was able to dismiss the case without having to bother considering whether the Cabin Boy™ had stated a claim upon which relief could be granted.

None of the LOLsuits he’s filed against me have ever made it past a motion to dismiss for venue or lack of personal jurisdiction.

Losing losers gotta loose.

Schmalfeldt Assists Alex Jones


Not directly, but quite ironically.

Let me explain.

I’ve been remiss in keeping up with my reporting on the Gilmore v. Jones, et al. defamation LOLsuit filed in the U. S. District Court in Charlottesville, Virginia. Brennan Gilmore took the cell phone video of a car ramming into a crowd of protestors in Charlottesville that was posted on Twitter. He is suing Alex Jones and others, claiming that their comments about him and his connection to the event he recorded were defamatory.

IANAL, but it seemed to me that the existing case law would lead the judge to dismiss the case. However, he denied most of the motions to dismiss, allowing the suit to go forward against most of the defendants. Because the judge’s ruling appears to be at odds with case law, the lawyers representing a group of defendants which includes Alex Jones have filed a motion seeking either reconsideration of the ruling or permission to file what is called an interlocutory appeal of that ruling. An appeal would allow the Fourth Circuit to rule on the matter before any significant time and resources are spent on discovery and, perhaps, a trial. Aaron Walker, the lawyer representing a second group of defendants, has filed brief supporting the Jones, et al. motion. (Disclosure: I work with Aaron as a paralegal on First-Amendment-related cases.) Two of the cases he cites in his brief are Schmalfeldt v. Grady, et al., No. 4:17-cv-01310 (D.S.C. 2017) and Schmalfeldt v. Johnson, et al., No. 15-CV-1516 (E.D. WI. 2016).

So it may be that Bill Schmalfeldt’s ineptly conducted pro se lawfare will provide support for the dismissal of a suit against Alex Jones.

Heh.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


When Lee Stranahan and Aaron Walker sought the assistance of Howard County, Maryland, in protecting their families from online harassment by Bill Schmalfeldt, they were told that by the State’s Attorney’s Office that no charges would be brought against Schmalfeldt. Further, the Walkers were told

If you’re so concerned for your safety, stay out of Maryland

Stay off the Internet if you don’t want to be harassed.

I found such a response to be appalling, and organized an Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day. The following post ran six years ago today.

* * * * *

Tomorrow is Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day. If you’re going to participate, let me know via a comment, tweet, or email so that I can link to your post on Monday.

Do these two statement accurately reflect the policies of the Howard County, Maryland, State’s Attorney’s Office?

If you’re so concerned for your safety, stay out of Maryland

Stay off the Internet if you don’t want to be harassed.

They are the sorts of things that were told to the Stranahan and Walker families when the sought help in dealing with Internet harassment and stalking. Hogwash! is encouraging other bloggers to contact State’s Attorney Dario J. Broccolino (contact info and more details here) for clarification and to post the answers received along with any commentary tomorrow on Everyone Blog About the Howard County State’s Attorney Day.

* * * * *

A year later, I sought help from the Howard County State’s Attorney in dealing with Schmalfeldt’s online harassment. The following post ran five years ago today.

* * * * *

This morning I met with an Assistant State’s Attorney from the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office. The subject of our meeting was the disposition of the charge of failure to obey a peace order against Bill Schmalfeldt.

My meeting had certain similarities and certain differences compared to the meetings concerning Bill Schmalfeldt that Aaron Walker and Lee Stranahan had with that office.

The principal difference was that the prosecutor was polite and respectful of me. His conduct was at all times professional.

The principal similarity was that the decision to drop the charge had been irrevocably taken before the meeting. This is troubling because the purpose of the meeting was to provide evidence not contained in the charging document so that a proper decision could be made. Evidence apparently was to have no bearing on the disposition of the case.

I am disappointed.

* * * * *

<sarc>I’m sure there was my publicly questioning the HoCo State’s Attorney’s policies concerning online harassment had no effect on the Office’s handling of my case.</sarc>

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Today is the fourth anniversary of a post at Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread by Matt Osborne trying to put a positive spin on the false peace order petition Brett Kimberlin filed against me on behalf of Tetyana Kimberlin’s elder daughter. He ended his post with this paragraph—

How will Hoge cope with being an adjudicated stalker of teenage girls? How will a six-month peace order affect his gun permit, or his employment at the Goddard Space Flight Center? These are the questions BU will ask and try
to answer. Stay tuned!

Ask stupid questions and you’ll get unexpected answers, Bunny Boy.

I’ve never had to cope with being an adjudicated stalker because both a District Court and a Circuit Court judge saw through Kimberlin’s lies. Even if the peace order had gone through, it wouldn’t have affected a Maryland gun permit, but since Maryland is a may-issue (read, won’t-issue) state, I don’t have a Maryland carry permit. I was told that the peace order petition and the Kimberlin and Schmalfeldt emails to NASA did result in criminal investigations being opened, but I was not a target.

Because they didn’t fit Kimberlin’s false narrative, BU never published the answers to those questions.

BTW, Osborne’s post was still up as of 9:30 pm, 8 March, 2019.

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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


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.

In Re a LOLsuit


The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt has filed an opposition to my motion to dismiss his recent LOLsuit. I received a copy in today’s mail.

I don’t plan to make any substantive comment on TDPS’s opposition to my motion until I finish laughing.

UPDATE—I’m leaving comments open, but please don’t educate TDPS.

Prevarication Du Jour


SRN201503080019ZThe Cabin Boy™ might wish to review his previous court filings before running off at the keyboard. This is from a letter he sent Judge Grimm last year when he tried to stick his nose into the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. The letter is memorialized as ECF No. 63 in that case’s docket and would be a self-authenticating document if introduced into another proceeding in any court in the U. S.ECF 63-p2

demented adj. \di-ˈmen-təd\ :suffering from dementia.

This sort of sloppy neglect of the facts by the Cabin Boy™ is one of the reasons why he should expect to lose his LOLsuit.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Mrs. Hoge received a couple of interesting emails today. Someone is trying to use her identity to sign up for a Disqus account in order to post comments at Breitbart Unmasked.UntitledMrs. Hoge also received this email related to Bill Schmalfeldt’s new SRN.Untitled1Of course, she hasn’t tried to comment at BU, and she has no interest in SRN. (She prefers to listen to WYPR out of Baltimore for NPR talk and jazz and WETA-FM from Washington for classical music.)

I can understand why a member of Team Kimberlin would rather have someone else’s identity instead of his own. OTOH, I am not amused by someone trying to steal my wife’s identity.

LOLsuit Exhibitionism


I promised that I would get the exhibits that The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt included with the complaint for his latest LOLsuit scanned and uploaded to scribd.com. They can be found here.

That link is provided for those who wish to view the material. I do not wish to post the exhibits here because they contains items which I would not allow in the comment section of this site because nothing has been redacted.

I don’t plan to make any public comment about the contents of these exhibits until after I have filed a responsive motion or answer to the complaint.
