Having posted that motion, I suppose it’s time to explain what happened in the District Court on Thursday, the 18th. That afternoon there was a hearing on Aaron Walker’s motion to vacate the expungement of the harassment charge issued against him on the basis of Brett Kimberlin’s perjured Application for Statement of Charges. Aaron’s motion was granted, and the case is now visible again in the online database.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had written in one of his recently stricken filings in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit that Aaron shouldn’t be able to use an expunged case in evidence. In fact, TDPK misinformed the Circuit Court, saying that the District Court had denied Aaron’s motion. So there’s a silver lining to all of those motions going belly up—Brett’s falsehood is no longer part of that case’s record and can’t be used against him now.
When the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin and The Dreadful Pro-Se Freeloader Schmalfeldt have been plaintiffs in their various LOLsuits, they have been the sole party on their side of those cases. Now, they are joint defendants along with other individuals.
Before, they didn’t have to consider anyone else’s interests. Now, they have co-defendants whose interests may conflict with theirs. Indeed, the interests TDPK and TDFS are in conflict on some issues. It will be interesting to see how they undercut each other as things go forward.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has a interesting month ahead.
On 13 September, he has two hearings before Judge Mason in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. The docket shows a pretrial hearing in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit scheduled for 9:00 am. The docket also shows a motions hearing in the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit scheduled for 9:30. I believe that all the remaining defendants will have ripe motions to dismiss, and all of them are similarly situated as the defendants who have already been dismissed. That case could be over after the hearing. I suspect that TDPK will have a very bad day on the 13th.
Two weeks later on the 27th, there’s a motions hearing scheduled in the Circuit Court for Carroll County in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. There’s a pending motion to dismiss from Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson and a pile of frivolous motions from the Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt and the Kimberlins. There are also pending requests for orders of default against the Kimberlins, the Cabin Boy™, Almighty Media, and Breitbart Unmasked; a motion to compel compliance with a subpoena by GoDaddy; and a motion for alternate service against Matt Osborne. I look forward to seeing how many of the defendants show up.
One of the websites affiliated with Justice Through Music and Velvet Revolution.US is known as Hunton & Williams Watch (huntonandwilliamswatch dot org). It nominally carries news that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin imagines supports his failed RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit which is formally known as Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. The site also has a DONATE button, but that may not be generating much revenue.
I was checking up on it yesterday evening, and couldn’t find any traffic analysis for it. The traffic is so low that services such as Alexa don’t have any data for it. Aside from the fact that very few people care about Brett Kimberlin’s contretemps with Team Themis, the “news” on the site is so stale that even someone interested in the lawfare wouldn’t want to rely on H&W Watch to find out what was happening.
Here’s an example of one of the more recent bits of “news” on the site, a year-old story recycled from Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Boy Unread.
There’s nothing about the federal RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit being dismissed or how the appeal is going. There’s nothing about how the most of the defendants (including Hunton & Williams) have been dismissed from the RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit in state court. Of course, Bunny Boy Unread hasn’t updated its coverage either.
Brett Kimberlin never really had a firm grip of the narrative, and his clumsy attempts at brass knuckles reputation management have resulted in his completely losing control. Now, things are like an old TV show.
We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare is reaching its outer limits.
By now, the Gentle Reader may have noticed that the Cabin Boy™ is prone to making outlandishly asinine statements, e.g.—The Dreadful Pro-Se Freeloader Schmalfeldt’s lawyer was “recruited” by the U.S. District Court for the District of Northern Illinois to represent Bill Schmalfeldt. He is not doing so voluntarily, but under the order of the court.
Patrick Ostronic’s representation of me (and Ali Akbar, Stacy McCain, and Aaron Walker at various stages of the first case) in a couple of lawsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin was purely voluntary. He learned about the Popehat signal going up because of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit while reading Instapundit, read Ken White’s post, and decided to represent me. I’m thankful that Ken White and Glenn Reynolds helped by publicizing the first Kimberlin case, and I’m especially grateful for Patrick Ostronic, his commitment to the First Amendment, and his pro bono representation of me in two of the four lawsuits The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed against me.
In one case, a lawyer read about a situation and volunteered his services to represent a defendant. In the other case, a lawyer was drafted by a court to represent a plaintiff who claimed pauper status while reporting a middle class income. The Gentle Reader may decide for himself if either case involves freeloading.
It’s no surprise that the Kimberlins did not properly cooperate with discovery in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit. (The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin only submitted a disorganized, half-assed pile of non-admissible documents to our discovery requests for Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. after Judge McGann threatened him with not being able to introduce any evidence at trial.) As a result their non-compliance, Aaron Walker filed a motion to compel. Since that initial motion to compel, the twists and turns of the case have made it advisable for Aaron to supplement his original motion.
Based on the Kimberlins’ non-response to discovery sought by Aaron Walker in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, Aaron filed several motion withs the court, including a motion in limine requesting that the court disallow any testimony by Tetyana Kimberlin because she invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination rather than answer deposition questions. [Aside: In limine is Latin for “at the edge.” A motion in limine is usually filed before a trial begins (at the edge of the trial) and seeks to exclude inadmissible evidence.] Here is Tetyana Kimberlin’s opposition to Aaron’s motion.
