Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin routinely lies. His first felony conviction was for perjury, and he has been caught making false statements in all the suits he filed against my codefendants and me. His current filings in his case before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals suggests he has not reformed. The TKPOTD from seven years ago today examined one of lies in a Kimberlin court paper.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin make lots of assertions in his various filings in his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness that are equal parts falsehood and silliness. This is from his opposition to my motion to dismiss his first amended complaint.

ECF 29-14Point (1) of that claim is simply false. Here is how I replied—ECF 56-p10_11Of course, I expect to win the RICO Madness lawsuit. It should be dismissed for multiple reasons, including TDPK’s failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted. Even if it makes its way to trial as the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit did, TDPK can’t present evidence for all the elements of any of the torts he’s alleged.

popcorn4bkThe Team Kimberlin Theory of Lawfare as propounded by First Mate Neal Rauhauser relies on low-cost pro se lawsuits against defendant’s with little legal experience who can be intimidated into settlements. TDPK’s practical application of the theory in the RICO Madness has been rather inept. He’s sued a couple of lawyers, several media entities with counsel either on retainer or staff, and several other defendants deeply committed to defending their First Amendment rights. The other defendants who might have been intimidated have been encouraged by the vigorous defenses that some of us have made.

It’s disappointing to have to wait until next year to see this vexatious lawsuit go away. OTOH, the longer it lasts, the greater the potential blowback on Brett Kimberlin. I’ll bet that he doesn’t have enough good sense to cut his losses by seeking to dismiss the case rather than filing his omnibus opposition.

We will see.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

No, he didn’t have the good sense to cut his losses after the RICO Madness LOLsuit. He sued me in state court (RICO Retread) over the state law claims, kept me involved in discovery for the single count against the one remaining defendant in the first RICO case (RICO Remnant), and named me as a defendant in the second RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit. It took beating him in all of those for him to finally figure out suing me was a whole lot more trouble than it was worth.

We hit the jackpot today with filings in Brett Kimberlin’s case in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals seeking to overturn some of his Speedway Bombing convictions. There are four of ’em.

The first is his reply brief to the the Department of Justice opposition brief.

The second is a motion asking the court to appoint a freebie lawyer to handle oral argument in the case.

The third is a motion asking for a freebie lawyer to file an amicus brief supporting Kimberlin’s arguments about testimony from witnesses who had been hypnotized.

The four is a motion seeking to combine the current appeal with another he is trying to file, and there are a couple of docket entries for the new case. It seeks to attack some of the Speedway Bomber convictions because four-decade old hair samples are not available for DNA testing.

The first docket entry in the DNA case is the paperwork filed with the District Court giving notice of the appeal. The second is a notice from the Court of Appeals saying the District Court reports the filing fees haven’t been paid (although Kimberlin’s letter to the District Clerk say the funds are enclosed), and that the case may be dismissed if he doesn’t pay up or qualify for pauper status.

Unless the court grants the motion for an amicus brief or combines the appeals, the case is fully briefed, and the next move belongs to the judges hearing the appeal.

BTW, If Kimberlin’s arguments concerning the testimony of hypnotized witnesses had any legal merit, shouldn’t some defendants’ rights lawyer have filed an amicus brief already?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

While Team Kimberlin’s PR flacks spent a plenty of pixels forecasting the direst of dire direness for us defendants in their various LOLsuits, my coverage of their lawfare has been fact based. Oh, I’ve offered my opinions that they would fail, and I’ve noted some interesting side benefits for the ways they’ve failed. The TKPOTD for seven years ago noted one of those consequences.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin watched his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit fall apart in state court. Five of his seven counts were shot down in summary judgment. What that means is that, given the undisputed facts agreed to by both sides, he had no case as a matter of law. The other two counts were so unsupported by facts that the judge stopped the trial after TDPK rested his case and granted us defendants a directed verdict.

I’ve written in the past about how the results of the state case should affect the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness through the doctrine of collateral estoppel. However, the directed verdict in the state trial has caused another problem for TDPK. Because we never had to put on our defense, he has no idea what we would have presented. He is completely in the the dark about the nature, depth, and quality of the evidence we amassed. He has no idea what insights our investigations have given us. He has no idea what leads we are prepared to follow up if the RICO Madness gets into discovery. He has no idea who we intend to depose. He has no idea what documents we already possess.

popcorn4bkIf TDPK had a clue, he’d be filing a motion to dismiss the RICO suit against all the defendants. I sincerely doubt that his ego will allow him to do the wise thing. I fully expect that he will ride the RICO Madness down in flames. I also expect that Hogewash! will chronicle the crash.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

He still has no idea of the scope of the evidence my codefendants and I have. It would be very unwise for Brett Kimberlin to ever cause me to have to defend another suit.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for five years ago today cites one the false narratives that Brett Kimberlin tried to sell during his campaign of lawfare—that he had received some sort of double secret exoneration related to his Speedway Bombing convictions that was accompanied by a settlement from the government for his “false” imprisonment. His attempts to bring that narrative into the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial provoked the judge and probably resulted in the closest shave Kimberlin had with being punished for his misbehavior in court.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin tried to bring up his double secret exoneration during the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. trial. He tried to claim that he has successfully sued the federal government for false imprisonment and has used part of the settlement for the initial funding of Justice Through Music Project.

MR. KIMBERLIN: The settlement that I received from the Department of Justice —

MR. WALKER: Objection.

THE COURT: [Addressing the Jury] Ladies and gentlemen, if you’ll please wait outside for just a moment.

Jury Exits.

THE COURT: I have told you twice now we are not retrying that case, and we are not getting into any collateral action you may have brought against the federal government about your conviction in that case. The relevance of that conviction, it was only offered to show why he refers to you as a terrorist, why he’s perhaps obsessed with you [unintelligible] nature of that offense, and I would have permitted him to introduce it if you hadn’t because you sat here and told the jury that you had never been convicted of anything he had blogged about. That is the only reason that it is being admitted. We are not retrying that case. I do not want you to go into it in any more detail. —

MR. KIMBERLIN: I —

THE COURT: — I do not want talk about any collateral civil suit thereafter, ah, sued the federal government for false imprisonment. And I’ve told you that twice. If you do it again, I will find you in contempt.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, the reason I was talking about the settlement from that case was partially used to start Justice Through Music.

THE COURT: It makes absolutely no difference and has no relevance to this particular case —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, —

THE COURT: — how you started and how you funded Justice Through Music.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Alright, I won’t talk about it anymore.

THE COURT: Get the jury back in.

FWIW, Justice Through Music Project was founded in 2003. The JTMP 2005 Form 990 Schedule A shows that the corporation had no income that year and took in $121,450 in 2004.

Here are the cases styled Kimberlin v. U.S. Department of Justice that are reported cases (all have other citations at lower court levels)—

Kimberlin v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 788 F.2d 434 (7th Cir. 1986) was a bogus Privacy Act claim aimed at keeping Carl DeLong’s widow from collecting funds from his prison commissary.

Kimberlin v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 921 F.Supp. 833 (D.D.C. 1996) involved a FOIA request for DEA documents about Dan Quayle.

Kimberlin v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 139 F.3d 944 (D.C. Cir. 1998) was an FOIA request remanded back to the District Court.

Kimberlin, et al. v. U.S. Dept. of Justice, 318 F.3d 228 (D.C. Cir. 2003) was his unsuccessful LOLsuit seeking to be able to possess an electric guitar while in prison.

None of these seem to represent a double secret exoneration.

* * * * *

If Kimberlin’s double secret exoneration really exists, why is he having to press his appeal in the Seventh Circuit to have part of his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside. Perhaps he will explain that in his reply brief due this Friday.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the false claims made by Team Kimberlin was that it didn’t exist. Of course, it did—as their own Internet postings demonstrated. Eight years ago today, I ran this post titled No Team Kimberlin, Huh?.

* * * * *

One of the reasons that Brett Kimberlin is suing my codefendants and me for a million bucks is because we write of the existence of a group of people we call Team Kimberlin. It seems that The Dread Pirate Kimberlin believes the mere suggestion that he has influence over a band of Internet thugs is defamatory or libelous or constitutes mopery with intent to lurk. He would have you believe that there ain’t no such thing as Team Kimberlin.

AcmeLegalBriefsSomeone should tell Cafe Press and whoever is running Breitbart Unmasked these days.

And there’s no connection between TDPK and Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt other than the bond of friendship. It’s a coincidence that the Amazon shopping links at Breitbart Unmasked benefit parsbilswhohom-20 (aka Bill Schmalfeldt).

So Team Kimberlin must be a creation of the warped mind of the crazies in Team Lickspittle—just as the members of Team Kimberlin if you don’t believe it.

Brett Kimberlin has another appeal in process at the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals seeking to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside. He has a reply brief due next week. Thus far, he’s maintained a perfect record of failure in the Seventh Circuit. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today dealt with his first appeal to that court.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin is rarely at a loss for words, especially when he’s writing a court document. His complaint in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et. al. lawsuit is 27 pages long. That’s not close to the record. Mark Singer tells this story at the start of Chapter 23 in Citizen K:

In February 1984, a 273-page appellant’s brief in the matters of U.S. v. Kimberlin was delivered to the clerk of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Several cases titled U.S. v. Kimberlin—all the convictions from the 1979 indictment in Indiana, as well as motions for new trials—had been consolidated into a single appeal, which sagged under the burden of the disparate factual and constitutional complexities the petitioner wished to address. This hernia-inducing brief grossly overshot the fifty-page maximum length permitted by the court, and it was rejected by the senior staff attorney of the Seventh Circuit without receiving even a cursory reading.

Brett Kimberlin is no stranger to poorly-written, technically deficient court paperwork.

* * * * *

The pool calendar for the date the court denies Kimberlin’s appeal is posted in the break area.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin clearly believes that he is special and that not only should he not be bound by any laws or rules but that everyone else should be required to comply with what thinks the rules should be. The TKPOTD from six years ago today published a court filing Kimberlin filed protesting an adverse party following the court’s direction on how to proceed with a pending lawsuit.

* * * * *

Yesterday, I was running errands around Montgomery and PG Counties. One of my stops was the Circuit Courthouse in Rockville.

The Gentle Reader may remember that I had noted a few days ago that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a motion for a protective order in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. Here it is.

The only comment that I can make for now is: “Wow!”

* * * * *

There were two case pending before Judge Mason that included Brett Kimberlin and Arron Walker as adverse parties. Even if one assumes that Kimberlin is confusing the tow suits, his filing is pure nonsense.

This Prevarication Du Jour dealt with one of the many false forecasts of the direst of dire direness looming ahead for the defendants on the first of Brett Kimberlin’s LOLsuits. It first ran eight years ago today.

ftrrnews201310111937ZCutting my own deal am I? Well, Gentle Reader, I did offer Brett Kimberlin a cheap way out of his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. He opted not to settle, so my lawyer has filed an answer to his complaint.

I have no intention of conducting my defense of the suit on the Internet, but items filed as part of the court docket become public documents unless they are sealed. Since anyone who goes to the courthouse can get a copy of a docket item for fifty cents per page and since the truth is on my side, I will, at least for the time being, post my filings to save folks the trip. I’ll delay the postings to allow time for any other party to receive service before anything appears online.

I do not plan to have any comments on filings when I post them. To do so could give away information on my counsel’s legal strategy which would be useful to the other side.

* * * * *

He really should have taken my settlement offer.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin for several years may remember that one of Brett Kimberlin’s failed attempts at being seen as an important player was his involvement in the Russia Collusion Hoax. He’s since tried to scrub the Internet of his connections to that scam. For example russiadossier dot org has been gone for almost two years now.But it’s well backed up offline, as is his 2016 testimony about working with the Justice Department on election integrity. And the Internet still remembers his spending $9,000 on fake documents sought to smear a Trump appointee.

If he’s lucky, he’ll be treated as the small fish he really is.

I’m so old I can remember when there was a reasonable chance of Twitter acting responsibly to deal with harassment. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today dealt with one of the enforcement actions they took against Bill Schmalfeldt.

* * * * *

I wish to express my thanks to Twitter for suspending the sockpuppet/impersonation @wjjjhoge account.

* * * * *

Fair enforcement of understandable rules by Twitter didn’t last long. In April, 2015, I became one of the first conservatives to be permanently banned from Twitter. They didn’t have all the bugs worked out on banning conservatives in my case, so they wound up reinstating the @wjjhoge account when the false charges filed against me by Brett Kimberlin fell we dropped.

Brett Kimberlin’s reply brief to the Department of Justice opposition brief in his appeal seeking to have some of his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside was due at the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday. He did not file one. However, he did fill a request for a 30 day extension of time to file his brief.

He asked for an extension of 30 days but also asked that his time be extended until 22 October, only 18 days past the deadline he missed.

Math is hard.

We’ll see what the court does. Stay tuned.

Brett Kimberlin has an appeal before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals attempting to overturn some of his Speedway Bomber convictions.

Back in October, 2013, Brett Kimberlin’s lawfare campaign against me was just getting started. He had filed one false criminal complaint which had been declined for lack of evidence and had just filed the first of his vexatious LOLsuits. Eight years ago today, I posted this report In Re Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.

* * * * *

My morning was spent in a strategy meeting with my pro bono local counsel for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. All the filings necessary at this stage should be delivered to the court before the due date. I have no further comment on the suit for now—except to say there may be interesting news over the next couple of weeks and that my offer to settle the matter for a payment to me of $1,000,000 remains on the table until my lawyer files his appearance on my behalf with the court.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Kimberlin would have been much better off if he’d taken me up on that settlement offer.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin seems desperate to achieve some manner of positive fame. He is, of course, famous, but being known as a convicted serial bomber isn’t the kind of notoriety he wants. The post this clip is taken from first ran nine years ago today under the title Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin—Man of International Consequence.

* * * * *

Those Gentle Readers who have been with the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin for lo these many months will know that he had a run in with Aaron Walker in the lobby area outside the 9th floor courtrooms in the Montgomery County Court House back in January. He filed a criminal complaint against Mr. Walker which the State’s Attorney decided wasn’t supported by the evidence. TDPK tried to intervene in the case to force a prosecution.

<mockery>You see, the case was too important to let die. Look at how TDPK began his Motion in Opposition the the State’s Motion to Nolle Pros This Case:

Now comes Victim/Complainant Brett Kimberlin (“Victim”) and hereby opposes the State’s Motion to Nolle Pros this case. In support of this motion, Victim states that this is not simply a run of the mill assault case but rather one that has both national and international ramifications and is being watched by federal law enforcement authorities, State Department contractors, organizations that monitor hate groups, foreign countries with large Muslim populations, and national Muslim and civil rights organizations. There are many aggravating factors present in this case that warrant full prosecution and even consideration of additional charges against Mr. Walker.

Wow! That sure is a heapin’ big burden for a simple assault case to carry. Who knew that Mr. Kimberlin was so important in, for instance, a foreign country with a large Muslim population?

Actually, there are only two of the categories on the list that come close to making any sense. Both of TDPK’s not-for-profits have done work for or funded by the State Department, so they might be the “State Department contractors,” but I wonder what “federal law enforcement authorities” would be following a simple assault case in Maryland. Even if TDPK were still on supervised parole, a parole officer isn’t a LEO.

Hmmmm.

It seems that TDPK may think he’s further up the pecking order than reality would allow.</mockery>

* * * * *

I filed an FIOA request with the State Department about the work he claimed to have done for them. The State Department claims to have no records of any such work by Kimberlin.

Well, he’s also a convicted perjurer, and perjurers have been known to tell lies.

Brett Kimberlin may have thought that he would get a change to stick his hands into some deep pockets with his Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit, but he waited until after the statute of limitation has expired against his big money defendants. He tried to solve that problem by including me as a defendant, claiming that my writing about him and his activities was a continuation of the alleged conspiracy to defame him. That made it in my codefendants’ interest to assist in my defense. Here’s the TKPOTD from six years ago today.

* * * * *

The reply to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to the motion to dismiss filed by the U. S. Chamber of Commerce in the Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit contains this paragraph that points out how defective some of TDPK’s allegations against me are.

ECF 71-p17_18Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if TDPK got around to filing an opposition to my motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim and what tale he might have tried spin as part of it.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

Of course, the lawyers for the Chamber of Commerce were correct in stating that even if I had done what Kimberlin alleged, such acts would not have provided any basis for a lawsuit. Additionally, allegations such as Kimberlin’s tale that I had ever fantasied about murdering him were simply false.

His lawsuit against me was dismissed with prejudice for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

The Bonus Team Kimberlin Post of the Day for seven years ago today is an excellent summary of why The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare has failed.

* * * * *

After two days of trial and enough words to consume over 400 pages of transcript, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit boiled down to this one sentence finding by Judge Johnson:

There’s not one scintilla of evidence in this case that the statements that were made by these individuals were false.

Res judicata. Collateral estoppel. They should both apply to the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RCIO Madness.

One of the ways Team Kimberlin demonstrated their utter impotence was by the plethora of empty threats they made against me and my coverage of their activities. These posts from eight years ago cite a trifecta of examples. The first came from Bill Schmalfeldt, and my response was “Go Ahead, Make My Day.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with on of the more bizarre claims that Brett Kimberlin made about my background in his RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has me confused with another William Hoge. He put this in a recent filing in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.ECF 67-p8He must have me confused with my late father, who was a Special Agent in the U. S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps during World War II. He was involved in investigative work in the U. S. during the first part of the war, and he commanded a Counter Intelligence Team attached to the 66th Infantry Division in Europe. (Military Intelligence was not a separate branch back then. My father was commissioned in the Infantry, and he was the only infantry officer to accept the surrender of a German submarine, but that’s another story.) After the war, his CIC team was involved in rounding up Nazis. He continued to serve in the Army Reserve until the late ’60s and transferred to Military Intelligence when it became a separate branch.

I was commissioned in the Signal Corps, and while I worked closely with SIGINT guys from time to time, I was never a part of Military Intelligence. I’ve had various security clearances as a soldier or as an engineer working on government programs, but I’ve never been a spook.

TDPK is either very confused or hallucinating or lying. Or perhaps all three.

One of the most disgusting things I’ve seen during the legal wrangling with Brett Kimberlin has been his cruelty. The TKPOTD for six years ago today noted one of his most cruel acts, suing a defenseless stroke victim.

* * * * *

Late Monday evening, my lawyer was served with a copy of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit. I will have no comment on the amended complaint until after I have reviewed it with my lawyer, except that I will note that TDPK is continuing to include Mandy Nagy as a defendant in the suit.

* * * * *

Mandy was 45 when she suffered her stroke a year before Kimberlin filed the RICO Retread LOLsuit. He knew ofher  condition when he filed. During a hearing in the case, the judge had asked him why he was suing someone who could not defend herself. Yet, he kept her in the case to the bitter end.

Mandy’s mother reports, “Her physical condition has unfortunately deteriorated somewhat, so that she has more trouble walking. But her cognitive abilities seem to have improved.”

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for seven years ago today showcased a couple of examples of Brett Kimberlin’s incompetence as a litigator.

* * * * *

Witness impeachment is the process of calling into question the credibility of an individual who is testifying in a trial. A party may impeach a witness by cross-examining the witness about facts which reflect poorly on the witness’s credibility. One does not impeach one’s own witnesses on direct examination—unless, of course, you are The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. This is from his direct examination of Ali Akbar during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. trial.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr. Akbar, have you ever been convicted of a felony?

MR. AKBAR: Yes.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Sustained.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor, I believe it goes to his honesty.

MR. AKBAR: Going to impeach me?

THE COURT: Well —

MR. OSTRONIC: You called the witness.

THE COURT: What are you impeaching him for? It’s your witness. You’re calling your own witness and impeaching him?

I’m not making this up. TDPK expected to use Ali Akbar’s testimony to get evidence into the record after attempting to impeach him as an unreliable witness. Go figure.

I’ve mentioned in an earlier post that one of the basic rules of examining a witness in court is to never ask a question unless you know what the answer will be. TDPK repeatedly violated that rule.

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m not asking you to give me a mission statement. I’m asking you —

MR. AKBAR: All right. What was the question again?

MR. KIMBERLIN: — a simple question. You know — have you ever raised, through the National Bloggers Club, or Bomber Sues Bloggers, or Rally.org, any money for any purpose to deal with me, my name, or any of these legal issues?

MR. AKBAR: I’d like to answer no, but clarify, if I may. We’ve raised relief funds for bloggers who have lost their jobs, families who have been attacked, families like mine. My mother and my brother have been attacked by your blog, BreitbartUnmasked.com, and —

MR. KIMBERLIN: I object. I object.

MR. AKBAR: — we’ve raised money. We’ve raised relief money.

THE COURT: Well, this is your question. You wanted to know if he raised any money —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, but he’s saying it’s my blog. I didn’t have a blog.

MR. AKBAR: Breitbartunmasked.com.

THE COURT: You can’t — if you think you’re not going to like the answer, don’t ask the question. You asked him if he’d raised the money —

MR. KIMBERLIN: Your honor, I’m just saying, you know, he’s making a statement that’s false.

Accuse the accuser.

So TDPK has said that Breitbart Unmasked isn’t his blog. We’ll see about that.

It’s now fairly well established that Brett Kimberlin exercises effective control over the now fallow Breitbart Unmasked website. I supposed we shouldn’t be surprised when a perjurer tells a lie.
