Monkey see, monkey do — after months of cheerleading for Brett Kimberlin’s vexatious lawsuits, now Bill Schmalfeldt announces:
Today I have filed a lawsuit in the US District Court for the District of Maryland, Northern Division.
The defendants are:
WJJ Hoge III
Robert Stacy McCain
Nancy Gilly, aka “LibraryGryffon”
Paul H. Lemmen
Bettina Haper, aka “Black Betty”
Chris Heather, aka “Embryriddlealum” and any number of other sock puppets
Stephen R. Sheiko
The anonymous blogger calling itself “Paul Krendler”
I have filed under the following Claims for Relief.
1. Malicious Prosecution and Abuse of Process
2. Defamation and Libel
3. Harassment and Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
Having not seen the complaint, I can’t imagine what manner of tortious injuries Schmalfeldt is claiming to have suffered from me.
UPDATE: More ranting from the Neckless Troll:
They’re yukking it up over at Hogetown since I announced that I have filed a Federal lawsuit. A lot of the mindless sheep are bleating about wanting to be included. I can accommodate them. I imagine I have until such time as the case is officially docketed to change the list of defendants, so if you REALLY, REALLY want to be included, contact me with proof that you are you, and I will only be too happy to oblige.
Personally, I’m thrilled that I’m not being taken seriously. Wait until the summonses start arriving.
Yeah. Whatever, Bill. What I can’t wait for is when the complaint is posted. Should be good for a few laughs.
@rsmccain Vexatious lawsuit, can't imagine where he got such an idea…
