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.
