Patterico's Pontifications


Victory Over Convicted Bomber and Perjurer Brett Kimberlin in the Fourth Circuit

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:42 am

Last night, in writing about Brett Kimberlin’s latest efforts to get his Wikipedia deleted, I said that his lawsuit against me was still alive — kicking around in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

I spoke too soon. This morning Ron Coleman and Bruce Godfrey informed me that the Fourth Circuit rejected Kimberlin’s appeal.

Meaning — subject of course to some B.S. motion to reconsider or petition for certiorari — that it’s over.

And for that, I owe (again) a huge debt of thanks to Ron Coleman of Mandelbaum Salsburg, PC and the Likelihood of Confusion blog, and Bruce Godfrey of Jezic & Moyse LLC.

If you personally have a need for the services of a lawyer in the greater D.C. area, I ask you to consider contacting Bruce Godfrey. If you know someone who has a need for the services of a lawyer in the greater D.C. area, I ask you to talk to them, right now, and tell them to consider calling Bruce Godfrey. Bruce, and his firm linked above, handle criminal defense cases, traffic defense cases, car accident cases, and especially employment law for matters in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

If you have intellectual property issues, Ron Coleman is your guy. He got the Slants case to the Supreme Court and won. That says it all. If you have any other issues in New Jersey or New York, consider his firm.

Thanks to both of these fine gentlemen. Please go let them know that you appreciate their efforts on my behalf:

Ron Coleman

Bruce Godfrey

  1. Na na na na

    Hey hey

  2. Congratulations.

    But keep your eyes open and your back to a wall, there’s plenty more where he came from.

    Despite your tinge of TDS you’re still a prominent, persuasive and widely read man of the right and hence a target for the lunatic fringes of the left, many of whom love lawfare.

  3. So, to quote one judge’s written opinion when Kimberlin sued a bunch of other people, “Kimberlin failed…” once again? Color me shocked.

    Congrats, Patterico.

  4. Congratulations Patterico!! Had wondered where it stood, and glad that weight is finally off your shoulders. Great news.

  5. Glad to hear. Has he been labeled a vexatious litigant yet?

  6. Twitter delenda est. I won’t go on it, not even to congratulate these lawyers on an occasion in which they well merit congratulations.

    I hope, though, Patrick, that you will copy & email the comments from this post to them, for they are absolutely worthy of recognition and congratulations: What they’ve just done is in the highest and best tradition of the legal profession. Your average fan and well-wisher here, reading about this, likely has only the foggiest notion of just how much time and effort and attention is required to vanquish someone like Kimberlin. I have a pretty good idea of what had to be involved, at a minimum. So I am very impressed, professionally and personally, and I applaud and salute them both, and if I ever have a chance to refer a nice piece of well-paying business to either of them in the future, I’ll do so without hestitation.

    And now the next victim will have an easier time of it. A Fourth Circuit affirmance like this — one page, on which the panel duly bothered to establish that yes, it looked individually at this appeal, and found Kimberlin’s position in it utterly without merit and unworthy of further discussion — sends a nice, clear signal to the next trial court judge, whether in the confines of the Fourth Circuit or anywhere else, state or federal, that appellate courts will back them up when they cut short the pro se litigation siege war designed by this miscreant.

    Messrs. Coleman & Godfrey deserve congratulations and commendation, but so too do you as their client and principal. There was no craven surrender nor even nuisance-value symbolic settlement here — nothing to encourage and reward Kimberlin’s abuse. I’m sorry you ever had to be among his targets, but unsurprised at the ferocity of your principled resistance and gratified by your ultimate triumph.

  7. He can’t hide what he is from anyone.

    And he won’t get away with trying anymore.

  9. Congratulations, Patterico! May the Kimberlin bullschiff end here…

  10. Congratulations to you, Patrick, and to Bruce and Ron for a job well done.

    How is that brass knuckles reputation management working out for Kimberlin nowadays?

    Jeff Lebowski (7f648e)

  11. Thanks to Mr. Goldman, Mr. Godfrey and you. The joy is doubled by wonder at what you good men have done.

    SarahW (3164f0)

  12. Congratulations to you, Mr. Goldman and Mr. Godfrey. Maybe Brett can crawl back under a rock somewhere.

    Loren (66de82)

  13. That is a judicial bitch-slap right there.

    And richly deserved.

    Dave (ac1051)

  14. Congratulations. Justice has prevailed. Hope you and your family are happy.

  15. I see legal matters as through a glass, darkly. And yet I’ve followed this from its sorry start. Congratulations! Confusion to the enemy! Huzzah!

  16. Also today, a lawsuit Kimberlin filed against my office and former supervisors was dismissed as a violation of the protective order in our case. It seems the courts are finally starting to get it.

  17. Congratulations, Patterico :)

  18. Great news, Patterico! Congratulations and thanks to Ron Coleman and Bruce Godfrey. They were officially representing you, but they were ultimately representing freedom of speech and standing up to violent bullies!

  19. I like the 4th circuit’s brush off. I assume that is boilerplate, but it still says FOaD pretty clearly.

    Kevin M (752a26)

  20. Is there such a thing as a class-action counter-suit?

    Kevin M (752a26)

  21. Congratulations. Sometimes the good guys really do win one.

  22. Ron, Bruce,
