Dread Deadbeat Pirate Kimberlin’s First Mate Neal Rauhauser thought he’d struck it rich with a sanctions award in the Texas Bullyville lawsuit.
Wrong. James McGibbney appealed. (H/T, Karma’s Concierge)Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
UPDATE—Click here for background on this case.
The drudgery of dealing with the hassle of the various Team Kimberli LOLsuits has been offset by the laughter induced by their incompetence. As the TKPOTD from three years ago today shows, they’ve never done a credible PR job for their side.

One of the more amusing things about dealing with Team Kimberlin is the way that they continually make fools of themselves with their pronouncements about the course of their lawfare. Consider these golden oldie tweets from 2013.Yeah, Matt, that pro bono lawyer did such a “half-assed” job that five of the seven counts of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s nuisance lawsuit were thrown out at summary judgment, and the two remaining counts never made it to the jury because they were thrown out on a directed verdict in my codefendants’ and my favor. Who lost badly?
Yeah, John V (as retweeted by Bunny Boy), I’m full of empty threats. Just ask the Cabin Boy™.
Yeah, Neal, Kimberlin should have had a lawyer, so why didn’t he get one? After all, two of his associates in JTMP/VRUS are lawyers. Perhaps it was because his case was nonsense, and no lawyer was willing to risk sanctions or his law license by signing on to the patently false claims in Kimberlin’s suit.
Team Kimberlin never seems to learn. Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson and 57F Osborne have been blithering about recent events on Twitter. And getting things wrong. I wonder if they think that more than a handful of people believe anything they tweet?

I should probably amend that last question to ask if they think that anyone believes them anymore.
Paul Krendler isn’t the only anonymous blogger who Team Kimberlin has tried to identify, as this TKPOTD from four years ago yesterday shows—

First Mate Neal Rauhauser has been taking a more public role in Team Kimberlin’s PR spin campaign associated with The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s frivolous lawsuits against my codefendants and me. He’s shown a particular interest in Kimberlin Unmasked.There’s a very simple reason why FMNR can’t find what he’s looking for. It doesn’t exist. It never did. Aaron Walker has never had anything to do with running any of the Kimberlin Unmasked blogs or Twitter accounts.
I call the person who runs Kimberlin Unmasked “Elvis” for convenience. Believe it or not, I still don’t know who Elvis really is. But I do know that certain people are not Elvis. Aaron Walker falls into that category.
Perhaps the rumor is true, and Neal Rauhauser has been a contractor with Acme Investigations all along.

A few days ago, the Cabin Boy™ tweeted this—Logic? OK, that’s not one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s strong suits. He commits several fallacies in that tweet, but it gives me a chance to show how I know that Aaron Walker was not the person blogging as Kimberlin Unmasked in 2013. One Saturday, Aaron was visiting at stately Hoge Manor, and we were both working on our laptops at the kitchen table. I was conducting an email exchange with Kimberlin Unmasked. I could see what Aaron was typing on his computer, and it never had any connection to my email conversation with KU. Thus, I believe I can confidently say that Aaron was not KU.
Similar chains of evidence and logic supports my knowledge that certain individuals are not Paul Krendler.
Team Kimberlin’s lawfare has been an attempt to use the courts to wage war on the First Amendment rights of their critics. The campaign has been almost universally unsuccessful, first because both the facts and the law were against them, but also because of their lack of understanding on how to conduct such a campaign.
War is war, and there are principles which all successful campaigns (other than those that succeed through dumb luck) follow. When I was an ROTC cadet, the military doctrine I was taught was encapsulated in the Nine Principles of War: Objective, Offensive, Mass, Economy of Force, Maneuver, Unity of Command, Security, Surprise, and Simplicity. Team Kimberlin has failed to properly follow these principles while the targets of their lawfare have routinely used these principles to defend themselves and push back.
Over the next few day, I’ll be recounting some examples of Team Kimberlin’s failures and their targets’ successes.
There are a couple Team Kimberlin related hearings today.
The Gentle Reader may remember First Mate Neal Rauhauser’s famous $1,300,000 judgment that was set aside. There will be a hearing in that case in Texas. I’ll post news about any result as soon as I get it.
A hearing on all the pending motions in Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit is scheduled for 10 am in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland. Among the motions to be considered are those filed by my lawyer seeking dismissal for improper venue and for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. I plan to be present and to report on the hearing as soon as it concludes.
The Gentle Reader may remember that Neal Rauhauser’s plans to become a millionaire were torpedoed when the judgment against James McGibney was set aside.
The new trial was scheduled for today, but has been continued until 7 April, the same date that the next motions hearing in Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit.
First Mate Neal Rauhauser also has legal proceedings pending. He is one of the defendants in suit filed by James McGibney of BullyVille.It was FMNR who first proposed the idea of pro se lawfare as a way to harass conservatives.
Karma is a bitch.
