There are two mysteries in the Kimberlin/Schmalfeldt controversy I’d love to have unraveled. One of them may have just begun to unfold. They are:
- Will Julia Scyphers’s granddaughter ever come forward to tell about her relationship with Brett Kimberlin?
- How sick is Bill Schmalfeldt?
The first one may have to wait.
Bill Schmalfeldt has filed paperwork with the court hearing the Hoge v Kimberlin et al. lawsuit. Bill now lives in Wisconsin, but a judge has decided the proper venue is Carroll County, Maryland. Bill has asked the court to consider his physical state, and the fact that he has Parkinson’s. I have never spent much time considering how sick Schmalfeldt is, in part because I have no way of knowing. Neither do the Lickspittles and Zombies, except by noting his activities, which he documents in excruciating detail.
Bill says he is too ill to travel. His documentation is dated 2010.
If Bill Schmalfeldt is going to be successful, he’ll probably have to come up with more current information. That information will likely be shared, debated and discussed by people who do not like Bill very much. People who are already suspicious of Bill’s complaints.
Bill Schmalfeldt has just handed the people he dislikes the most an opportunity to discover how ill he really is. It might be smarter to withdraw the motion, and take the train.
