Kimberlin Unmasked’s Cartoon and Ron Coleman’s New Firm

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:40 pm



There’s a fellow on the Internet calling himself Kimberlin Unmasked who is no fan of Brett Kimberlin. He renders the diminutive convicted bomber and perjurer as a snarling chihuahua. Anyway, he took some actual language from Brett Kimberlin’s frivolous and censorious complaint against me, incorporated a couple of lines from Ron Coleman’s answer, and put the whole thing in cartoon form, using my Simpsons avatar to represent me and the chihuahua to represent the bomber/perjurer. The result is, I submit, pretty funny:

Note well that the funny parts of that cartoon, though they appear to be coming from my avatar, were all written by Ron Coleman.

It should be noted, I think, that Ron Coleman happens to be an authority on how to prepare responses to complaints in federal civil litigation. As noted here, Ron is one of the authors of Chapter 6 of the first edition of West’s Business and Commercial Litigation in the Federal Courts.

Ron also recently joined the firm of Archer & Greiner as a partner.

Archer & Greiner is pleased to announce that Ronald D. Coleman has joined the firm as a Partner, increasing the firm’s depth of experience in its established Intellectual Property practice. Mr. Coleman is a commercial litigator who focuses his practice on copyright, trademark and unfair competition.

Congratulations to Ron. Do me a favor and visit the announcement to read up on his career move, and/or go thank him on Twitter for what he has done for me, for Mandy Nagy, and for Ace of Spades. If you could hit up Archer and Greiner in the Twitter feed that would be fantastic as well.

I don’t talk about this frivolous lawsuit much, because a) I’m bored with it and b) it’s not generally wise to flap one’s gums about a lawsuit. However, the existence of the lawsuit will never stop me from noting, when appropriate, that Brett Kimberlin is a convicted bomber and perjurer who blew the leg off of a Vietnam vet and squirreled out of paying a lawful judgment.

Brett Kimberlin is, in my constitutionally protected opinion, an evil man. I think there are fewer and fewer people willing to say this, because I think he has successfully intimidated some people. That said, far more people know about his evil background now than would have known about it had he not embarked on his campaign to silence me and other critics of his. He sowed the wind, and is reaping the whirlwind of the Streisand effect. That’s not my fault. It’s his.

Brett Kimberlin has not intimidated me, and he has not intimidated Ron. Ron has stood by us at considerable risk and has gone above and beyond in countless ways, for years. He has my undying appreciation, and I hope he has yours as well.

  2. God bless you all. It’s been a hard few years.

    I’m sort of in the mood for a live chat. Would anyone join me on a Saturday night? We used to do this sometimes.

    Thing is, I have no idea what software to use. I’ll try to figure it out if five people express interest.

    (So far, the count is zero.)

  4. Actually, I may just start it anyway. If I can figure out how to do it. The old ones always started slow but usually caught on after a while.

  5. Pat, long-time reader, but rare commenter.

    I am from Indianapolis, Indiana, born and raised. I was a kid when Brett Kimberlin was setting off bombs in Speedway, but I am old enough to remember the media sensation his trials caused.

    I had no idea he was out of prison until I saw your original post back in 2010. Since then, I have been following with great interest at Aaron’s and John Hoge’s sites.

    I havenlots of things to say about this case, but I am just going to leave it at this, if you’ll pardon my language…that fucker never should have been paroled. Ever.

    I had a good laugh at Ron’s answer, paragraph 147. Who says court filings can’t be fun?

    Continuing prayers for a successful resolution to the case.

  6. Thank you, Patterico and all the others who have not run.
    Brett Kimberlin is a serial bomber who also plotted the death of a prosecutor.
    He is also a creepy wanna-be rock singer who sings songs about sleeping with teenage girls. He sues people who tell the truth about him.

    If Kimberlin wins, then no one can tell the truth without being sued. Journalism would be dead and the cockroaches can run the planet.

  7. It’s unfortunate the judge did not fully understand Kimberlin’s activities and a few charges against you remained after the dismissal of the defendants and other charges and against you in RICO I – Kimberlin vs. The World. Nevertheless it is great for you to have Ron on your side and entertaining to read his work on your behalf.

    I am looking forward to see what happens to RICO II – Vexatious Boogaloo, which Kimberlin filed almost immediately on top of the dismissal of RICO I, containing virtually the same allegations, which was assigned to the same judge who dismissed RICO I including the phrase “Kimberlin failed” probably a minimum of 20 times.

    Was it really? I had not been aware of that.

  9. “Was it really? I had not been aware of that.”

    I might be wrong on which one, but one of his LOLsuits was assigned to the same judge.

  10. Maybe the Home Depot extravaganza. He apparently bought thousands of dollars of home improvement equipment last year, on his $19,500 salary.

  11. He did file Rico part Deaux. More NR conspiracy theories.

    JD (3b5483)

  12. I saw that. Just not sure which judge is hearing it.

    Patterico (9c670f)

  13. Ron Coleman has my greatest respect and thanks for his work for you, Patterico, and on behalf of Mandy.

    I really am quite jealous that his litigation skills so exceed mine, but I have better hair.

    You hear that, Ron? I have better hair. 😉

  14. Ron Coleman makes it look easy. Those two quips from the comic were deadpan in the middle of an otherwise very dry list of denials, and all the more amusing for it. I wish there was a way to repay him for his good works, but on the other hand, making partner at a great firm is some great karma coming back to him.

    As DRJ says, God bless you and the others, especially Mandy and her family.

  15. No it was totally RICO-vu.

    Landed at random with the same judge, on the eve of all that Kimberlin failing.

    I laughed and laughed and laughed.

  16. Oh, and Brett Kimberlin is, in my opinion, a truly terrible person whose convictions represent atrocities he committed against innocent people. I do not think he spent nearly enough time in prison. I am relieved that efforts to bring attention to his actions were quite successful, and I do not have to waste much of my time thinking about him.
