Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin must not have a very creative imagination because he keeps trying to recycle the same debunked stories. The tall tale that was the subject of the TKPOTD from four years ago today kept reappearing. It was featured prominently in TDPK’s filings in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

It’s hard to choose from among so many, but this may be my favorite of the whoppers that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has included in his pleadings filed in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. The “reporter” he mentions is Bill Schmalfeldt.ECF 49-3The Gentle Reader who has been following the Cabin Boy’s™ antics for the past year or so may wonder if TDPK hasn’t ascribed obsessive and bizarre conduct to the wrong person. It’s the “reporter” who is subject to a peace order, not me. It’s the “reporter” who violated the order over 400 time in less than a month.

For the record—I was not forced to participate in mediation with the Cabin Boy™, but as a result of the mediation, I agreed to ask the State’s Attorney’s Office to drop the charges in exchange for Schmalfeldt’s agreeing to abide by the peace order and drop his appeal of the extension. He has reneged. I didn’t.

Why, I wonder, did TDPK feel threatened by my efforts to see the peace order enforced? Hmmmm. That might be an interesting question for a deposition, if the RICO Madness goes that far.

It doesn’t matter how Team Kimberlin has tired to spin that story—in TPDK’s court filings, in the Cabin Boy’s™ LOLsuits, in Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread, or in Karoli Kun’s smear piece in Crooks & Liars—the lie has failed to gain any traction. Indeed, their inept telling and retelling of it has fueled a great deal of pointage, laughery, and mockification.

And the mockery continues.

Four years ago yesterday, the Circuit Court for Carroll County extended the first peace order granted against Bill Schmalfeldt. During the course of the hearing on my petition for the extension, Judge Stansfield patiently explained the law to the Cabin Boy™ in an attempt to correct his misunderstandings of various points. The next day, Team Kimberlin was on the Twitterz making stupid claims about the law—and that resulted in this Prevarication Du Jour.

Here’s a doozie …DERPSEC201312101221Z

When asked to cite a case where the Supremes had so ruled, the response was …

[crickets].

The reason is quite simple. There is no such ruling; the question hasn’t been considered by the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the applicable case law says the opposite, including Hoge v. Schmalfeldt (Md. Cir.Ct. Carr.Co. 2013) Case No. 06-C-063359 (cert. denied). Schmalfeldt raised the “@mention isn’t contact” argument in paragraph 2 of his Supplement to Petition for a Writ of Certiorari during his appeal in that case. The Court of Appeals didn’t buy it, finding “there is no showing that review by certiorari is desirable or in the public interest.”

A large part of the hopeful confusion among the pro-harassment crowd relied on their focusing on the fact that Internet harassment is specifically covered by a Maryland statute, but the missed the fact that it violates another Maryland law as well, one that can be a trigger for a peace order. That law, the statute dealing with harassment generally, is the one which the Circuit Court found Schmalfeldt transgressed.

There is no safe harbor in Maryland law for harassment via the Internet.

UPDATE—After referring to those questioning his legal scholarship as “lickspittles,” @LibtardMedia has taken his account private. Now, who would call his opponents “lickspittles”?

During the hearing, I stated that I believed that Schmalfeldt would continue to violate the peace order until it was enforced. Alas, everything proceeded as I had foreseen.

UPDATED: Uncivil Disobedience

Apparently, Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t think very much of the petitions I filed with the Circuit Court earlier this month. Here’s 21 seconds from a video he posted commenting on them.

That’s the copy of my petition for a show cause order (contempt of court) that he rips up. I wonder what the judge will have to say about that video?Hearing20131209
