“Kimberlin is an inveterate and shameless liar, who was convicted of perjury before he graduated high school and who has been called a ‘top-flight con man.’ It is an injustice and a disgrace that an infamous criminal like Kimberlin should be permitted to continue harassing such an innocent and honorable citizen of Virginia as Aaron Walker.”
— Robert Stacy McCain, “Speaking of Terrorists,” Sept. 11
When last we left the story a week ago, Aaron Walker’s attorney had filed a “Motion to Compel Discovery” in the lawsuit against convicted terrorist bomber Brett Kimberlin. And as I said:
I’m not generally a legal-document fanboy, but [Walker's attorney Dan] Backer really rips Kimberlin apart in this one.
Remember that Walker is himself an attorney, yet in this case wisely has retained the services of Backer, while Kimberlin — who has filed more than 100 court actions as a “jailhouse lawyer” — has chosen to represent himself, with predictably unfortunate results:
Last Friday, two motions were heard in the Circuit Court in Prince William County (VA). The first was Mr. Kimberlin’s Motion for Continuance that we examined a few days ago. Denied! The second was Mr. Walker’s Motion to Compel Discovery which was, of course, granted. . . .
I haven’t seen a copy of the order yet, but if the judge was generous and allowed him the normal 21-day response time again, Brett Kimberlin now owes answers by 5 October. Under oath.
William J. Hoge’s emphasis on the phrase under oath represents the biggest danger to Kimberlin, a man seemingly incapable of telling the truth. And as Walker himself points out, Kimberlin has actually indicated he’ll plead the Fifth Amendment – in a civil suit?
