    Ken:

    Can you host the State court stuff, Docstoc isn't compatible with screenreaders, and it wants $19.95 for a download, Is that the hearing scheduled for July 5, that is in Maryland's docket. As DCA-DE NOVA?

  2. SPQR says:

    Hmmmm, the complaint does take an interesting tack.

  3. EH says:

    JFC, even law.cornell.edu has idiotic popup ads now.

  4. Dustin says:

    I just want to note, having heard Bours argue at trial, that I believe Aaron is in exceptional hands. And anyone in Maryland who needs an excellent trial lawyer should at least give Bours a call.

    I have yet to hear anyone lay out the Walker situation as clearly and conversationally as Bours.

  5. I don't suppose there's any sort of action that can be taken against the judge, is there?

  6. TomB says:

    More next week.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Nobody gave you the weekend off, boy! Now dance!

  7. TheOtherMatt says:

    In NY Judges who do this kind of thing are run off the bench pretty quickly. Of course we allow non-lawyers to be Judges (depending on jurisdiction) so our SCJC is more powerful in comparison to states where this is not the case

  8. Chris R. says:

    It's about time.

  9. Matthew Cline says:

    From Walker's lawsuit against Kimberlin:

    9. Kimberlin is now a self-styled progressive activist whose two nonprofit organizations have been funded by well known liberals

    Isn't that information irrelevant to the lawsuit? Why bother including it?

  10. Scott Jacobs says:

    Because Brett himself has very little money…

    His funders, however… :)

  11. Scott Jacobs says:

    OK, having finally knuckled under and read the complaint, I have to ask…

    Are all such things so well written, or are phrases like "All other Justice the Court deems mete and proper" the sort of thing you only get with a good lawyer?

  12. AlphaCentauri says:

    The Memorandum of Points and Authorities is a thing of beauty. It has to feel good as a lawyer to put your name at the bottom of something so well researched with arguments so compelling.

  13. perlhaqr says:

    However, I feel precluded from discussing his federal case, as opposed to the state court proceedings.

    Obviously you don't have to justify yourself to us, but I'm just curious as to why. Because you used to be a federal prosecutor?

    No.

    One of the great injustices of our system.

  15. @Scott Jacobs — that part you probably get with copy/paste. Lawyers have to come up with the stuff in the middle.

    Glad to see this new organiztion on the scenes. http://rightsolutions.org/projects/bloggersdefenseteam/

  17. The federal complaint is the thing of beauty and a joy to read. Let us pray that time truly does wound all heels.

  18. Correction: "A" thing of beauty. Yeesh.

  19. egd says:

    You can read the complaint here and the motion for a temporary restraining order here. No exhibits — too big, sorry.

  20. Robert Hewes says:

    I'm pleased that Mr. Walker has learned not to go pro-se.

  21. Erbo says:

    And now what happens?

    http://patterico.com/2012/06/25/aaron-walker-swatted/

    Fortunately, it wasn't quite as traumatic as Patterico's SWATting; Walker must have briefed the local authorities in advance.

    The Dark Forces have rallied for a counterattack…

  22. AlphaCentauri says:

    Their timing could come back and bite them in the butt. Someone put in a fake call to the Coast Guard off NJ a couple days ago. Having people out on boats in the dark looking for people in the water is a lot more dangerous to law enforcement than the usual SWATting. And it's been connected to a similar case in Texas. So there's going to be a federal effort to look for other cases that might involve the same perps. That means all such cases are probably going to get special attention.

    […] There's more at The Other McCain. Convicted felon Kimberlin apparently trumped out a raft of new accusations against Walker, which is par for the course with him, but he may be finally running into a lawfare wall, with several prominent right-of-center attorneys offering Walker pro bono legal assistance. Part of Kimberlin's schtick is to file lawsuits to drag opponents into expensive litigation to defend themselves. Take that cost away, though, and Kimberlin's weapon has less bite. Righthaven ran into a similar problem once EFF started taking on the burden of defending bloggers against its copyright trolling lawsuits, and is now in all kinds of trouble. EFF were heroes then; Eugene Volokh has emerged as a hero in the Kimberlin saga. […]
