Ever since the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al lawsuit became public, my fellow defendants and I have been plagued by envious bloggers wondering what they’re doing wrong. “Gosh, I called him a ‘sociopathic creep’ and a ‘pipsqueak terrorist’ — why isn’t he suing me?”
The envy has only increased since BomberSuesBloggers.com launched Monday. It’s really kind of unfair for the five of us to monopolize the fun of being targets of lawfare and harassment by the World’s Worst Pro Se Litigant™ — a convicted perjurer and bomber, who can’t even get basic facts right on his lying court documents:
Last week, our defense team filed a motion with the Maryland court, alerting them to the fact that Brett Kimberlin’s original complaint was erred. In non-legal jargon: he didn’t even have the basic technicalities in his original complaint written correctly. This is nothing new for Litigious litigant and convicted bomber Kimberlin.
We demanded a correction be filed. We expect tomorrow that Kimberlin will make those advised modifications to his complaint. We also expect him to add new allegations because remember, what he most seeks is our silence.
Our defense team is growing thanks to the support so many of you have chipped in to give. We are humbled and plan to keep you updated. If you are on Twitter, you can follow details at @BomberSues.
Did I mention that he’s The World’s Worst Pro Se Litigant™?
It is an utterly frivolous lawsuit and Brett Kimberlin knows it and we are asking for your donations to help.
How frivolous is it? So much so that he is suing Robert Stacy McCain for defamation for calling him “evil.”
I mean first, Stacy has a lot of good reasons to call Kimberlin evil given his terrorist bombing campaign has cost one man his life, to name but one example of the downright evil things Brett Kimberlin has done over the years.
But even before you shout “truth is a defense!” even more fundamentally, it cannot be defamation to call someone evil. I don’t care who you call “evil,” I don’t care how undeserving that person is, it is not defamation. If Mother Teresa was still among us and a person called her evil, even putting aside that she is a public figure, that would not be defamation.
That’s Aaron Walker’s discussion of the case, and you can understand why, given the pathetically ill-argued and just plain wrong stuff in this lawsuit, lots of our fellow bloggers are wondering how they can get added as defendants and become First Amendment heroes without risk of ever paying that little felon one red cent of damages.
OK, so I’ll give you a few tips. First of all, be sure to blog frequently about a little Indiana girl whose grandmother got shot to death.
There’s no statute of limitation on murder, you know.
Secondly, it may help to mention the claims of harassment Kimberlin’s estranged wife made in her July petition for a protective order:
You can link that and maybe quote the part about “he will hurt me” or, if you’re feeling energetic, just transcribe the whole thing.
Improvise. I’m not a lawyer (and neither is Brett Kimberlin), so I can’t really be giving you legal advice on how to get sued.
This is just what has worked so well for me. “Best practices,” as it were.
Something else: Brett Kimberlin really, really hates when people mention the sex charges his wife filed against him July 29. Sure, the charges got dropped, so there’s no chance he’s going to be arrested and put in jail for (allegedly) violating Maryland law.
But the simple fact that a 40-ish federal convict on parole would be having sex with a Ukrainian teenager . . . Well, see for yourself:
Now, I’ve been told Brett Kimberlin will file a motion today to try and get that Scribd upload taken offline, because he hates the truth. But if you were to download that PDF to your computer, and then upload it to your own Scribd account or as a media file on some other site, maybe Brett Kimberlin will add you to the lawsuit. Quoting extensively from that document could help, too.
What if a dozen different bloggers posted that document? What if 30 or 40 bloggers quoted extensively from these documents? Could Brett Kimberlin sue the entire freaking Internet into silence?
Heck, he might just sue you if you go to BomberSuesBloggers.com and click the button to “like” it on your Facebook page.
It’s worth a try, isn’t it?
