On March 2, 2016, William John Joseph Hoge III of Westminster, MD, filed a lawsuit in the Carroll County, Maryland, Circuit Court. He sued Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin, Matt Osborne, William Ferguson, your Humble Editor, Breitbart Unmasked, Almighty Media, four John Does and “Acme” for a variety of torts, including Defamation, Civil Conspiracy, Malicious Prosecution,and Breach of Contract.
540 days, countless motions, numerous attempts to find defendants in Contempt of Court, and despite offers to settle that Hoge refused and scoffed at, Judge Fred Hecker ruled today that Hoge had not proven his case.
None of it. Not a word. Nada. Zilch.
After all that time, money spent by Hoge and the county and state, all the worry and anxiety of the Defendants…
HOGE. GOT. NOTHING.
If this is what he means by everything is proceeding as I have foreseen, then only a madman would enter into such a misadventure knowing that all he would get out of it is bitter defeat. A defeat made that much sweeter for the defendants by virtue of his insufferable hubris and the fawning adoration of his legion of lickspittles who will declare that every action he took was the correct one and a stroke of genius. They will blame the State of Maryland for this humiliation.
I offer this response in the tune of the Maryland state song.
Matt Osborne just ignored the whole thing.
Will Ferguson got the court to drop him as a defendant.
In my “Written Statement in Lieu of Appearance,” the judge ruled I rescinded the admissions Hoge claimed I made by failure to properly respond to his request for admissions.
Hoge dropped all the defamation charges. When asked if he had any objections against the entrance of my “Written Statement” into the record, Hoge did not object, saying it was — how did he put it?
The statement did not “MAKE ITS WAY!” I sent it to my friend and co-defendant Brett Kimberlin who asked to have it submitted into evidence. Hoge did not ASK to have it submitted. He AGREED to have it submitted. He refused to OBJECT to its admission.
Despite the blithering of his gang of morons, Brett did NOT throw me under the bus. Brett stood by my side, like friends do, representing my interests as much as the court would allow, which would have been much less if Hoge had the common sense to raise an OBJECTION from time to time.
The case is over. Hoge says he is “examining his options” as to wasting $5,000 on a frivolous appeal.
You will NOT see the bloviating windbag state “everything is proceeding as I have foreseen” ever again because he has been SHOWN FOR WHAT HE IS, in a COURT OF LAW!
Even his dimmest follower will have to realize that eventually.
And I will look forward to seeing him in Federal Court down here in the Palmetto State.
To put a proper cap on this adventure (you can find more in the future at breitbitnews.com) this musical number that his lickspittles should strongly consider.
The Ram Has Touched the Wall, indeed. The wall withstood, and the ram shattered into heart-piercing splinters.
The credibility of William John Joseph Hoge III joined his wife in the hereafter today. As soon as I have the transcripts, I look forward to producing the entire trial as a Kabuki Theater play.
Hubris, when it fails, leads to endless humiliation.
Let the humiliation begin.
