Ah, the Streisand Effect! That’s the massive tsunami of adverse publicity that can result from an inept attempt to use lawfare to shutdown adverse publicity. Brett Kimberlin’s misuse of the courts not only magnified the attention focused on his past and present activities, it backfired in court. The TKPOTD for four years ago today described one aspect of how his brass knuckles reputation was doing him more harm than good.

Here’s another fun factoid from the results of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare against Aaron Walker. For four years now, TDPK’s has been lying about what happened during his confrontation with Aaron outside of Judge Rupp’s courtroom on 9 January, 2012. His claim that he was assaulted has been rejected by every judge that has examined it. When he sought his first peace order against Aaron, the judge found that harassment could be a basis for the order but not assault. (Note that the order was overturned on appeal because there was no evidence of harassment either.) Most recently, he sued Aaron in the RICO Retread LOLsuit alleging battery during the 2012 courthouse incident, and he lost, so now TDPK has both the doctrines collateral estoppel and res judicata preventing him from being able to sue again about the assault that never happened.
Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare has not only failed to silence his critics, it is having the additional effect of vindicating them. The Streisand Effect merely results in boomeranged publicity. The Kimberlin Effect is turning out to be even more disastrous.
It’s gonna take a while for the whole story to play out, but I’ll be covering it here.

It took a bit longer for The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin to get get over his craving for disastrous LOLsuits, and there are still a few loose end.
