Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Here’s the text of Judge Hecker’s recent order in Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. I believe this ties up all the loose ends other than the show cause hearings for Tetyana Kimberlin and The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt and matters directly related to the trial.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has filed an improper reply to one of Aaron Walker’s filings in his appeal of Walker v. Maryland, et al. in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. That’s the combined case against the State and the Kimberlins. The suit against the State seeks to have Maryland’s harassment laws declared unconstitutional as applied to the Internet on First Amendment and other grounds. The case against the Kimberlins seek damages for malicious prosecution using those laws.

Here’s the certificate of service filed with TDPK’s improper reply.(Alexis Rohde is the lawyer representing the State.)

The Gentle Reader may notice that a word appears to be missing from Kimberlin’s last sentence. Actually, there appears to be a great deal more missing than just one word. The most glaring omission is the signature for Tetyana Kimberlin’s attorney who should be filing the reply on her behalf.

Meanwhile, we’re at T-minus 14 days and counting in Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al.

A Non-Hearing


Tetyana Kimberlin failed to appear for her show cause hearing for failure to appear. However, she has also successfully dodged service of the court’s sua sponte show cause order, and the Maryland Rules do not permit the hearing to held until she is served. Therefore, Judge Hecker (who is pretty much running the case by the book) continued the hearing until after she is served. Because the writ of summons is still outstanding, no new paperwork was issued.

While this is not my preferred result, it is one of the two possible outcomes I expected.

The next hearings are scheduled immediately before the trial begins on 21 August.

T-minus 18 days and counting.

This came in yesterday’s mail—

My lawyer will handle it.

Note that I have not redacted the address shown for the Cabin Boy™ because it is no longer valid since he has skulked away from that location.

Nothing is proceeding as the Cabin Boy™ has hallucinated.

Tetyana Kimberlin’s show cause hearing for failure to appear at the pre-trial conference in the Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit is scheduled for 1:30 this afternoon.

Oh, and the count in Hoge v. Kimberlin, et al. has now shifted to T-minus 18 days and counting.
