Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


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.

Now that all the briefs are filed in the appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit and we’re waiting for the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to rule, I’ll be recycling posts related to that appeal and the other pending Team-Kimberlin-related cases. A big part of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s appeal is his whining about not being able to publish confidential discovery material on websites such as Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread. This post from two years ago today deals with that same theme.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has sent what appears to be an ex parte letter to Judge Hazel whining about the discovery protective order issued in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit.

popcorn4bkThe assertions in the letter are nonsensical. All the protective order prohibits is giving any discovery information marked “Confidential” to a third-party not directly involved in the LOLsuit. That means that TDPK is forbidden from leaking confidential information to “the press,” i.e., Bunny Boy Unread. In order for “the press” to challenge the order, 57F Osborne will have to hire a lawyer.

Heh.

* * * * *

TDPK could have hired a lawyer to file a motion on behalf of Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to unseal the Frey discovery, but I suppose that spending that $9k on other “documents” has crimped his budge. Or maybe having to identify the actual entity behind that website as the party filing such a motion …

All the briefs are in for the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit, so now we’re waiting for the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to rule. While we wait, here’s a look at the TKPOTD from 8 November, 2014—

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seems to be grasping at straws in order find some evidence to support his bogus and vexatious Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. He’s not even finding enough straw to make a tiny straw man to argue with. This is from his latest letter to the court.ECF 222-p2Pretend for the sake of discussion that some or all of the crackpot ideas advanced in that paragraph be true.

So what?

None of it is alleged in the second amended complaint. The court has already ruled that there will be no further amendments, so TDPK has to run what he brung. Kimberlin filed a lawsuit naming a blog called “Ace of Spades” as a defendant. He didn’t sue the blogger known as “Ace.” He didn’t sue the blog known as Ace of Spades HQ either.

PreparationH96ctThe self-inflicted butthurt is strong with this one. But relief is possible.

Stay tuned.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed his informal reply brief in his appeal of the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit, and it actually includes a bit of whining about an alleged ad hominem attack in the Frey response brief, i.e., truthful statements by Frey’s counsel Ron Coleman that relate to the facts of the LOLsuit.

TDPK also seems upset that Frey’s brief didn’t bother to address the case law cited in Kimberlin’s opening brief. I suspect that Ron Coleman didn’t bother because Kimberlin’s arguments are so patently wrong.

Stay tuned.
