Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The basic theory behind Team Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to try to silence their critics was that the uncertainty and expense of litigation would cause the targeted defendants to settle. A few did as business decision to minimize their out-of-pocket costs. Most of us didn’t because we viewed protecting our First Amendment rights as worth the cost and effort. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today dealt with one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts to appear in control of his narrative.

Hogewash! is still here, but Cheddar Injection is long gone. It folded even before the Cabin Boy™ had to leave Wisconsin. He’s been quite mobile for the past few years. IIRC, he’s had to move through an even greater number of states than the number in which he collected restraining orders.

It was four years ago today that Bill Schmalfeldt picked up a restraining order from a fourth state, in this case, Massachusetts. I reported it in this post, Breaking: The Mass Effect.

I have been informed that a harassment protection order against Bill Schmalfeldt was granted today by the Ayer District Court in Ayer, Massachusetts. The order protects Scott Hinckley (aka Agiledog.)

More later.

UPDATE—Here is a copy of the court’s order.

This makes 4 down and 46 states to go for the Cabin Boy™.

The Cabin Boy™ has been the subject of a dozen restraining orders issued in five states, one of which was to protect a toddler.

It’s a been awhile since the last one was issued, and he’s been more circumspect in his behavior, perhaps demonstrating that has developed the same level sense that a flatworm has to turn away from pain.

We’ll see.
