Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


T. S. Eliot starts off The Wasteland with these words: “April is the cruelest month …” In The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s wasteland the cruelest month is probably March.

On 13 March, 2015, his bogus peace order petition against me in the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County was denied Judge Williams.

On 13 March, 2018, his Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. LOLsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland was dismissed sua sponte by Judge Hazel.

On 14 March, 2018, the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit appeal was dismissed by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Per curiam. The dismissal wasn’t even worth an opinion.

On 17 March, 2015, the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland was dismissed by Judge Hazel.

On 30 March, 2016, the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland was dismissed by Judge Hazel.

OTOH, I’ve enjoyed March and its

… breeding
[Crocuses] out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with [late winter] rain.

But that may be related to everything proceeding as I have foreseen.

Qapla’


Congratulations to Patrick Frey and his lawyers, Ron Coleman and Bruce Godfrey: The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the judgment of the District Court in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit Appeal.

Brett Kimberlin has maintained his perfect record of losing all cases he has brought before the Fourth Circuit.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

The level of incompetence shown in the various court filings from Team Kimberlin in the course of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuits is amazing. OTOH, it has been a marvelous source of material for pointage, laughery, and mockification. Consider the TKPOTD from three years ago today for example.

* * * * *

When The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed his opposition to Stacy McCain’s motion to dismiss the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness, I chose not to publish it because it contained a great deal of scurrilous material that was nothing more than ad hominem attacks on Stacy and several other people. After careful review, I have been able to edit the filing to eliminate everything that is not responsive to Stacy’s motion.

* * * * *

About a month after TDPK filed his opposition to Stacy’s motion to dismiss, Judge Hazel granted Stacy’s motion and the motions to dismiss for the remaining defendants, except for the civil rights count against Patrick Frey. Patterico won that count on summary judgment, and that RICO Remnant is now at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Stay tuned.

Occasionally, I post material to provide newcomers to The Saga of Team Kimberlin with background information on Brett Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to suppress the First Amendment rights of people who write truthful things about him and his work. This was originally published five years ago today.

* * * * *

I’ve been blogging about the Team Kimberlin story since Lee Stranahan kicked off the Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day last May. Since July, I’ve done some original reporting on the Kimberlin v. Walker and Walker v. Kimberlin cases because they have been playing out in courthouses near my house.

I sometime forget that not everyone has followed those cases or the larger Team Kimberlin story as closely as I have, so it’s time for a bit of review. On Monday, I referred you to a post by Stacy McCain that provides some of the background on the Saga. Yesterday, I referred you to this post by Aaron Walker that fills in some more details.

Today, I want to you look at this post by Ken from Popehat about the kind of thuggery Team Kimberlin inflicted on one blogger.

Multiple LOLsuits later, we’re still waiting for a ruling from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Retread LOLsuit which is the last gasp of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s LOLsuit filed in October, 2013.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


There are still a couple of Kimberlin-related appeals pending.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals still has the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit under consideration. All the briefs have been filed, and we’re waiting for the court to rule. This is the remnant of the original RICO Madness LOLsuit. It deals with Kimberlin’s frivolous civil rights claim against Patrick Frey.

The Walker v. Maryland, et al. appeal has been fully briefed, and we’re waiting for the Maryland Court of Special Appeals to rule in that case. This is a two-fold case. One part is an appeal of the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. suit seeking a new trial in malicious prosecution case against Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin. The other part is seeks to have the Maryland laws that were used to charge Aaron Walker declared unconstitutional under the First Amendment.

When there’s more news, I’ll report it.

Stay tuned.

The Team Kimberlin lawfare is slowly grinding to a halt. Yesterday, I posted the news of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s voluntary dismissal of his appeal of the RICO 2 Retread LOLsuit. While pro se litigation can be done on the cheap in a trial court. Appeals are expensive, especially in state courts that require submission of 15 bound copies of each brief and 10 bound copies of record extracts. That can add up to thousands of pages. Perhaps TDPK is finally getting the message that his return on his costly investment in his lawfare has been negative. The TKPOTD from four years ago today dealt with the question of how long it would take Kimberlin for figure out how badly he was screwing up.

RICOMadnessThe Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is no stranger to filing—and losing—RICO lawsuits. While he was still in prison, he ran a business selling porn to other jailbirds. When he lost his original connection for the porn, he turned to a new source, but was unsatisfied with what was provided. On page 213 of Mark Singer’s Citizen K we find:

In January 1987, in federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, Kimberlin sued Crest Paragon Productions, alleging false advertising, breach of contract, mail fraud, conspiracy, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). … He asked for compensatory and punitive damages totaling $150,000. After “a [redacted] Reagan appointee” dismissed the suit on procedural grounds, Brett appealed to the Seventh Circuit but was told he’d have to pay an additional filing fee. “I decided at that point I’d spent enough on this,” he said.

One wonders when he will come to the same realization in his current Rico Madness.

* * * * *

Kimberlin still has two cases that aren’t dead, Yet. One his appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. It’s the remains of the RICO Madness case. The other is Kimberlin v. Breitbart Holdings, et al. which he filed in federal court at the end of October, 2016. Judge Hazel has issued a show cause order to Kimberlin requiring him to explain why the Breitbart case should not be dismissed because the complaint Kimberlin filed violates a protective order issued in the Frey suit.

Here’s TDPK’s response.

OK. Time to order more popcorn.

While we wait for further news from the various pending Team-Kimberlin-related court cases, here’s another recycled post. It’s from two years ago today and is the follow up post to the TKPOTD recycled yesterday. Both deal with The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s whining about being unable to get away with publishing sealed discovery in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit.

* * * * *

As can be seen from his letter to Judge Hazel that I posted yesterday, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin wants to be able to share information he receives from Patterico during discovery in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit with “the media.” Back when the Cabin Boy™ was editor of Breitbart Unmasked Liberal Grouch Unread, that site published sealed discovery documents from another case involving TDPK.BU20121130WalkerThat post has been taken down, but as you can see by the ability to call up its headline here on Hogewash!, the html code and resources for that post are fully backed up offline.

A large number of posts, some interesting, some not, (and essentially every post written by the Cabin Boy™) have been memory-holed by Bunny Boy. For example, …BU20130301WalkerThis was a post that included photos of Aaron Walker and his wife that TDPK took while he was stalking Mrs. Walker in the parking lot of the Howard County District Courthouse.

popcorn4bkIt’s interesting that many of the missing posts have something to do with TPDK’s breaching the seal on court documents or with one or more of his stalking or lawfare targets.

Hmmmmmm.

Of course, Bunny Boy Matt Osborne is no longer editor of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. The Cabin Boy™ is back, and the site’s readership numbers are becoming more … selective.

Failing failures gotta fail.

UPDATE—This post appears to have generated a Feldtdown in which the Cabin Boy™ has whined about several of his usual themes that have to do with features on this blog that generate more traffic than his stunted attempts at having a web presence. He’s also gone off on the subject of where I might be buried.No, it won’t be socialism.

The Hoge family has its own cemetery, and I have a spot reserved next to Mrs. Hoge. The cemetery is on land donated by one of my ancestors, and I am now one of its trustees.

For centuries, our family has had a tradition of giving land or other resources for churches and other community purposes. Earlier this year, I wrote about a family reunion at the church near Jasper, Tennessee, built on land donated by my great-great-great grandparents, and I’ve also written about the church near Winchester, Virginia, built on land donated by my great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents. They are buried there.There’s no indication that I’ll keel over at the keyboard (or any place else) soon, but when I do, I’ll join ancestors who gave me things to live up to.
