It was Brett Kimberlin who first used the marxist term false narratives to describe truthful reporting on his past and present activities. He was also the first to start using false stories (lies) as the bases for his claims in court. The TKPOTD for nine years ago dealt with one he’s kept bringing up.

Did you ever watch Gunsmoke on TV? Do you remember the opening? The guy down the street draws his gun first. Matt Dillion draws and fires in response. Now, pointing a gun at someone is assault, and shooting him is battery. And killing him is homicide. So why doesn’t Matt Dillion wind up on the gallows? Because Matt, unlike Han, shot second. He was responding to the threatening actions of the other guy which makes his assault (and homicide) justified.
The same principle applies in the alleged assault of Brett Kimberlin by Aaron Walker. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin made what to a reasonable person could be a threatening move by raising his iPad up as if to strike Aaron Walker, and Mr. Walker took it away from him. (TDPK now claims that he was simply trying to use the iPad’s camera to take a picture of Mr. Walker. Photography is forbidden in Maryland courthouses without a judge’s express permission.)
When TDPK sought a peace order based on the altercation, he claimed assault as one of the bases. When a judge heard both sides of the story during the final hearing in the District Court, he found that any assault that might have occurred was a justified response to TDPK’s provocation, and assault was dropped as a basis for the peace order. The Circuit Court later ruled that there was no basis for a peace order at all and threw it out.
Actually, an assault may have occurred on the 9th floor of the Montgomery County Circuit Courthouse on 9 January, 2012. Brett Kimberlin’s threatening gesture toward Aaron Walker may have constituted an assault. Regardless, TDPK’s claims of being assaulted are pure nonsense. They’ve already been reviewed by a judge and thrown out. They’re in the same category as his claim of selling dope to Dan Quayle or his sooper sekrit exoneration or so many of his fanciful tales.

And a big difference between Matt and Brett is that Matt never shot himself in the foot.
