In 2014, Brett Kimberlin lost spectacularly in the Kimberlin v. Walker et al lawsuit. (John Hoge, Ali Akbar of National Bloggers Club and Stacy McCain were the et al.)
John Hoge says that Kimberlin has been turned down in his appeals, and intends to take the case to the Supreme Court. Stop laughing.
It might be good to examine the precise moment when Brett Kimberlin lost that case. I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve read the transcript and think I have located that one special moment.
No, it wasn’t when he put a minor child on the stand to testify that he’s not a pedophile. The judge strongly tried to convince him not to do that, but that wasn’t the precise moment. No, it wan’t when he chose not to testify, though he had petitioned the court for permission to do so. (As a convicted perjurer, he ordinarily would not be allowed to testify.)
The precise moment in my opinion that he lost is right here:
Aaron Walker was on the stand, and answered in part:
It goes on for a bit, then the judge actually asks Kimberlin if he has his answer.
Brett Kimberlin also tried to out-crazy Stacy McCain, out-think John Hoge, out-wit Ali Akbar and out-lawyer Patrick Ostronic. (Ostronic represented all of the defendants except Akbar, who represented himself. Pretty sure he wanted Brett Kimberlin on the stand so he could ask a few questions.)
He lost. The defendants did not need to put on a case.
At the risk of educating someone who has already wisely put hundreds of pages relating to his private life into the public domain, please let me suggest that “Why do you think I’m a pedophile?” is the single worst question anyone can ever ask in front of a jury.
For the record, the proper response to that question is “How much time do we have?”
Maybe he will claim that as a pro se, he had incompetent counsel.
