When I got home late yesterday evening after spending some time out with friends, I found a bit of a mini-Feldtdown in my Twitter Notifications. The Cabin Boy™ was running off at the keyboard with nonsense based on things he had read into some of my recent posts. Of course, nothing he was going on about had any basis in anything that I had written.
For example, he seems to think that I will pay my lawyer’s fees resulting from the collection action against Brett Kimberlin for the sanctions he owes me. I never wrote any such thing. Indeed, my letter to Kimberlin says that I would order my counsel to recover the cost of collection from Kimberlin as I am allowed to do. I expect Kimberlin to wind up paying my lawyer.
As for being flush with cash to pay for transcripts, well, yes, my current cash flow can handle the court reporter fees necessary to pay for transcripts for any appeals, counterclaims, or other filings that I can now foresee. I’ve always paid my share for the expenses for transcripts, copies, hearing audio recordings, etc. that were needed by the lawyers who have provided pro bono representation for me (and my codefendants) in cases brought by Kimberlin and Schmalfeldt. In each of those LOLsuits, the lawyers contacted me and volunteered their services after hearing about the cases. They have generously worked without pay, but I have paid for the other costs of my defense in those cases.
This site does have a Tip Jar. The tips received and the revenue from The Hogewash Store and Amazon shopping clicks first go to paying for this site’s expenses. (This isn’t a free WordPress dot com site. I pay WordPress dot com for business hosting, and there are lots of other expense.) After those expenses are met, any profits have gone to help pay for the defense expenses for other people who have been sued by The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin or the Cabin Boy™. All of the expenses uniquely involved in defending me from those LOLsuits have come out of my pocket.
A couple of weeks ago, I sent a letter by hand delivery to Brett Kimberlin. The correspondence dealt with matters related to appeals he has filed with the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. This is the closing paragraph from that letter—The Gentle Reader will probably not be surprised to learn that I have not received any payment from Kimberlin toward the sanction awarded by the Fourth Circuit for his frivolously including me in his appeal of the RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit.
Murum aries attigit.
Let’s see: $600 for the August, 2014, sanction; $150 for the the September, 2015, sanction; and another $600 for the sanction just imposed by the Fourth Circuit. That makes $1350 in unpaid sanctions hanging over The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. Come to think of it, he hasn’t paid the costs taxed to him last year by the Court of Special Appeals for his failed appeal of the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit.
Murum aries attigit.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted my motion for sanctions against Brett Kimberlin.
The Gentle Reader should note that the three-judge panel found that Kimberlin’s appeal was frivolous.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed a motion to compel Aaron Walker to comply with a subpoena issued in the Kimberlin v. Frey RICO Remnant LOLsuit. The Gentle Reader should not be surprised to learn that Aaron opposes TDPK’s motion.
Does Brett Kimberlin have the litigation experience of conducting over a hundred LOLsuits or beginner’s-level experience a hundred times over?
Monday morning, I filed my reply to The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s opposition to my objection to his sealed motion to sanction me and motion to strike his sealed motion and sanction him for failing to properly serve me. (If that doesn’t make sense, neither does what TDPK had done that I’m complaining about).
The reply speaks for itself. I don’t plan to make any further public comment on the matter until the court has ruled.
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was a no-show at the scheduling hearing in the Kimberlin v. Most of the Universe, et al. RICO Retread LOLsuit on 7 July in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. Judge Mason was not amused. He directed the lawyers present to submit affidavits to the court for the amounts that they were billing their clients for that day’s court appearances. He stated that he would consider sanctioning TDPK by ordering him to pay for that their appearances that day.
The lawyers representing Glenn Beck and his companies, Breitbart, Erick Erickson, RedState, and me have submitted affidavits detailing billing for time, travel, and lodging (Beck’s lawyer came down from New York) related to the hearing that add up to $4,169.35.
