In a couple of his appeals to U.S. Circuit Courts, The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has seemed to realized how poor his legal skills are, and he has asked the court for a free court-appointed lawyer. A few days ago, the Seventh Circuit denied such a request. Five years ago today, my post titled Well, That Didn’t Take Long reported a seminal denial by the Fourth Circuit.

The Fourth Circuit wants The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin to explain the merits of his case before they appoint counsel to file an amicus brief on his behalf in the Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit appeal.
* * * * *
The Kimberlin v. McConnell, et al. LOLsuit was based on the crackpot theory that because the Senate had not acted on the Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court, its advice and consent had been waived, so Garland’s nomination should be considered confirmed. No court ever ruled on the merits of that proposition because it was found that Kimberlin didn’t have standing to bring the suit.
BTWl, that’s the same Merrick Garland who is now the Attorney General leading the Department of Justice defending the current Kimberlin LOLsuit in the Seventh Circuit.
And one more thing … Kimberlin’s Transcript Information Sheet for the current appeal was due yesterday. Perhaps it arrived too late to be scanned into the case docket on PACER, but as of close of business yesterday it wasn’t in the online docket.
