Interesting Legal News -- Convicted Bomber, Drug Smuggler And Perjurer Sues Bloggers

Timed (I doubt coincidentally) to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the terror bombings in the Indianapolis area, Brett Kimberlin has crawled out from under his rock to silence those who speak the truth about him.

Seems like abuse of the legal process to me, but as DaTechGuy says, "discovery should be loads of fun."

Here's a joint statement on the matter from John Hoge's blog.

Convicted perjurer, drug smuggler, and bomber Brett Kimberlin has filed a Maryland lawsuit naming bloggers Aaron Walker, W. J. J. Hoge, and Robert Stacy McCain; National Bloggers Club President Ali A. Akbar; and the anonymous blogger Kimberlin Unmasked as defendants.

The defendants believe that the suit is without merit and is part of Kimberlin’s continued effort to use lawfare to silence journalists and bloggers who have written truthfully about Kimberlin’s criminal past and recent conduct. The defendants will not make any further comments until they have finished initial consultations their respective legal counsel.

It also appears at Breitbart Unmasked and The Other McCain. As of this time, Aaron Worthing is maintaining radio silence, and I've seen nothing from Ali Akbar.

McCain also has a whole string of updates regarding other folks commenting.

UPDATE II: Linked by Kathy Shaidle — thanks!

UPDATE III: Linked by Da Tech Guy — thanks!

UPDATE IV: The Lonely Conservative calls Brett Kimberlin “evil,” so maybe the Speedway Bomber will sue her for . . . accuracy.

UPDATE V: Linked by Matt Ross at Conservative Hideout — thanks!

UPDATE VI: Patterico has done some research:

A search of court records reveals the complaint is for “DEFAMATION, MALICIOUS PROSECUTION, HARASSMENT, STALKING, CONSPIRACY, INVASION OF PRIVACY AND INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS.” It sounds like “accuse the accusers” on steroids, doesn’t it?
It will be fascinating to see how Kimberlin tries to assert that his reputation has been damaged — given that he has been convicted of setting off multiple bombs, one of which blew off a man’s leg, causing him to commit suicide. Doesn’t that tend to harm one’s reputation quite a bit more than stuff said by bloggers on the Internet?

No comment at this time.

UPDATE VII: Headline by Zilla of the Resistance:

Perpetually #ButtHurt Free Speech Hating
#ConvictedTerrorist #SpeedwayBomber
#BrettKimberlin Sues Bloggers — AGAIN

You forgot to mention “evil.”

UPDATE VIII: Welcome, Instapundit readers!

And, no, if “unwanted Internet attention” is your problem, trying to sue bloggers into silence is perhaps not a clever strategy. Maybe you could ask Charles Carreon about that.

UPDATE IX: Linked by Maetenloch in the AOSHQ Overnight Threadthanks! — and now a Memeorandum thread.

UPDATE X: Linked by Donald Douglas at American Power and by Jeff Dunetz at Yid With Lid — thanks!

UPDATE XI: Jeff Quinton reminds me of something I’d forgotten:

I previously blogged about Brett Kimberlin admitting to the sabotage of military equipment and a federal lawsuit that Walker filed against him.

Kimberlin sabotaged military equipment — he said so himself — but then again, Kimberlin is a perjurer, so maybe he made that up.

UPDATE XII: Linked by Evil Blogger Lady and Batshit Crazy News — thanks!

Personally, I'm rather pleased to see THIS story pop up in a timely manner -- a full recounting of Brett Kimberlin's life of crime, wonderfully timed to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the Speedway Bombings. Here's the last part of the article, noting what happened after the authorities were unable to conclusively link Kimberlin to a murder that evidence strongly suggests he committed.

Investigators had a much stronger case against Kimberlin for the Speedway bombings, but it would take three separate trials to convict him of that crime. The first trial, in 1980, ended in a hung jury on the more serious charges, but he was found guilty of impersonating a Department of Defense security guard. That got him a 12-year sentence on top four years for the Texas drug conviction. In the second Indiana trial, in June 1981, Kimberlin was convicted only of illegal possession of explosives. The third trial took 53 days and 118 witnesses and ended with a conviction on the bombing charges on Oct. 15, 1981. He was sentenced to 50 years in prison.

After Kimberlin was convicted, investigators revealed to The Star more details on certain aspects of the case that had not yet come to light. Reporter Joe Gelarden, who had covered the case throughout, compiled a detailed narrative of the investigation based on information and documents provided by the investigators.

While Kimberlin was in prison, Carl DeLong committed suicide. Had his only injury been the loss of his right leg he might have adapted and moved on. But his left leg had been severely damaged too and he still carried shrapnel in his body, which kept him in constant pain as it slowly worked its way out. After 11 operations he hit a plateau physically and knew he'd never get any better than that. On Feb. 23, 1983, he closed his garage door and sat in his van with the engine running. Later that year, DeLong's wife, Sandra (who had also been injured in the bombing), won a $1.6 million judgment against Kimberlin in civil court.

Five years later, in 1988, Kimberlin vaulted himself into the national news when he claimed he'd once sold pot to Dan Quayle, then a U.S. Senator from Indiana and candidate for vice president. Quayle vehemently denied the charge and Kimberlin produced no proof beyond making the claim.

Kimberlin was paroled in 1994 after serving about 13 years of his 50-year sentence. But when he made no effort to pay the DeLong judgment his parole was revoked in 1997 and he went back to prison for about four more years, released again in 2001.

Today Kimberlin is a liberal activist who seeks to silence conservative voices for speaking the truth about public figures, including himself. Here's wishing these latest victims of his lawfare great success.

This makes sense -- certainly bloggers have a lot of money while drug dealers are penniless and need to sue.

This roach is simply indestructible. Which is a pity, he poisons lives of so many people.
