That Bill Schmalfeldt demonstrated that he did not know why he was in Greensboro, NC.
Unofficial Transcript of the No Stalking hearing on July 14th, 2017. Context.
[D is Schmalfeldt, J is Judge.]
D: Alright. Ahhhhh, [paper shuffle] Mrs. Palmer, the thing that mystifies me is this blog of yours.
J: No, no!
J: No, that’s an improper question. You may question her about her complaint.
D: The complaint is tied directly to the blog, Your Honor.
J: No, the complaint is that you have contacted her on several occasions since on or about July the 4th. Now
*Crosstalk between Bill and the Judge*
J: Now you can ask her questions about that only.
D: Let me put it this way, then. Mrs. Palmer, as a pro se prosecutor I suppose of this lawsuit do I not have the right to contact a defendant…
J: That’s an improper question.
D: Ma’am, I’m asking for…
J: That’s an improper question, sir.
D: Could you explain for…
J: No. I’m not. I’m telling you that’s an improper question. You need to move on.
And these are just some bonus quotes from Bill Schmalfeldt:
“…I’m a little bit slow in the thinking department after almost 20 years of Parkinson’s Disease…”
“I’m trying to think of a question that won’t irritate your honor…”
This is from Bill Schmalfeldt’s blog, in which he mentions that John Hoge’s pro
se bono attorney has not run away:
In other PACER news, still no indication that Mr. Nettles has withdrawn from the case. But he hasn’t acknowledged receipt of the documents I sent Monday and Tuesday either.
Paul Krendler at Thinking Man’s Zombie also notes that Bill Schmalfeldt would NOT give John Hoge his address (until he did) but Schmalfelst thinks Sarah Palmer should check in every now and then to make sure her stalker can reach her.
And just in case, Mr. Schmalfeldt is reading this…
I found two of the Does. You will need to locate the rest of the hypothetical defendants on your own.
And another bonus quote from Bill:
If I hurt a person, then that person has the right to hurt me in retaliation.
That is fair. If I have NOT hurt a person, that person does not have the right, legally or otherwise, to hurt me because that person BELIEVES I hurt someone who is
NOT the person hurting me in retaliation.
It’s really a simple concept.
