Federal Judge Issues Devastating Opinion in Brett Kimberlin Copyright Case

Posted on | February 28, 2014 | 15 Comments

Aaron Walker discusses this at his blog, but the order itself is delightful reading in its own right, particularly when the judge recites the numerous federal cases Brett Kimberlin has filed previously:

Memo Opinion


What’s the Latin phrase for “pimp slap”?

    One can only pray this is a precursor to declaring this menace a vexatious litigant.

    Today’s Latin Lesson: Stloppus lenulo

    If the slap is directed toward the pimp, the dative should be used.

    One would hope that Judge Titus recited the federal cases for that very purpose. This may well signal his demeanor for the upcoming Show Cause hearing on this case on the 13th …

    I prefer the more formal “Meretrices a lenoni tunde” or even “Palmis caedebat in lenonis.

    I am unaware of any special categories like “devastating” or “pimp slap” in rulings on federal motions. The judge ruled against TDPK. That is no surprise since we already knew he had failed to effect service and had violated the prior rulings of the court concerning the filing of motions.

    What would be “devastating” or a “pimp slap” would be if he is ruled a vexatious litigant and the severe restrictions that go with that designation applied to him. It would stop his “lawfare” cold since all his filings would need prior approval and likelihood of success would be a consideration (not a good position for a guy who is like 1-113 in lawsuits).

    I’ll keep the champagne chilled, but it won’t be popped until Kimberlin is stopped.
