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.
