Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the dumbest things Brett Kimberlin has done during his campaign of lawfare was to use Bill Schmalfeldt as one of his PR mouthpieces. Aside from his incompetence, Schmalfeldt personal legal problems became a massive source of pointage, laughery, and mockification that damaged the Team Kimberlin brand. Schmalfeldt’s misbehavior resulted in his receiving a dozen restraining orders issued in five states. One was issued to protect a three-year-old child.

Here are a couple of posts from four years ago today that dealt with Schmalfeldt’s inability to obey one of those court orders. The first was a Legal LULZ Du Jour. The second was a Prevarication Du Jour.

NQ01601211819ZIf the Cabin Boy™ were to bother to read his copy of the stalking no contact order issued against him on behalf of Patrick Grady, he would see that he is forbidden from communicating “to or about” Mr. Grady. NCO_b1It may be that Cook County is interested in seeing that the orders of its courts are obeyed. BTW, Wisconsin recognizes out-of-state orders as enforceable in Wisconsin.

NQ201601212145ZNo, I don’t hate the First Amendment. I believe that prior restraint on publication generally is prohibited by the First Amendment, and the Supreme Court agrees with me. See New York Times v. United States, 403 U.S. 713 (1971), also known as The Pentagon Papers Case.

However, I do believe that it is possible for someone to do something that can result in the loss of some or almost all of his rights. For example, a felony conviction will put an end to a person’s Second Amendment right to own a modern firearm. A jail sentence ends someone’s right to travel as he pleases. Thus, it may be that a finding by a court that one has used his speech to violate the rights of another can cause a loss of some of the violator’s First Amendment rights. IANAL, and I haven’t read much case law in the area, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the Illinois stalking no contact order law is valid.

Schmalfeldt should have spent more time invoking his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. IIRC, the last of the restrain orders has expired, so his First Amendment right to speak is unfettered. But now it seems that nobody is listening.

Karma is a bitch.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Some of my favorite posts about Team Kimberlin have been titled Qapla’. This one is from four years ago today.

BREAKING: Lynn Thomas’s petition for a stalking no contact order against Bill Schmalfeldt was granted.

More later.

UPDATE—The Cabin Boy™ was a no show. His motion to dismiss was denied because he failed to serve a copy on Mrs. Thomas. The order was granted based on the evidence she presented to the court.

The member of the Vast Hogewash Research Organization who was present reports that the judge asked Lynn if she knew who is Paul Krendler. She responded, “I don’t know; he’s currently suing 28 people in Federal Court for being Paul Krendler.”

Heh.

UPDATE 2—Here is a copy of the order.

All told, the Cabin Boy™ racked up a dozen restraining orders in five states. I suppose that he stopped at five states rather than going for all of them is just another example of his inability to stick to anything for the long term. Kinda like having created and abandoned all those Twitter accounts and websites.
