BRETT KIMBERLIN’S Activities During Parole (see KIMBERLIN v. DEWALT 12 F.Supp.2d 487 (1998))
On February 13, 1994 KIMBERLIN was released on supervised parole. KIMBERLIN inherited $155,147 and entered into a book contract in favor of BKE, Inc., a corporation KIMBERLIN established and controlled. The book contract centered around allegations petitioner had made in the 1988 federal election campaign concerning his sale of marijuana to Dan Quayle. As of February 10, 1997 BKE, Inc. [the corporation KIMBERLIN established and controlled] had received $339,000 in proceeds from that book.
Despite a healthy income, KIMBERLIN continued to resist paying the DeLong judgment. Even after the United State Supreme Court declined to review the matter, KIMBERLIN continued to ignore the outstanding judgment.
During this time, publicity connected to the release of KIMBERLIN’S book, Citizen K, generated the attention of staff of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee.
On February 10, 1997 the Commission imposed a special condition of parole ordering KIMBERLIN to “immediately undertake, in good faith and with all diligent effort, to pay the final civil judgment …” KIMBERLIN additionally was prohibited from taking any action “that has the effect of delaying or otherwise frustrating the prompt satisfaction by [KIMBERLIN] of any part of this special condition.”
KIMBERLIN submitted objections and appealed the decision. On April 28, 1997 the Commission’s National Appeal Board affirmed the decision to impose a special condition that petitioner pay the Indiana civil judgment.
Rather than comply with the special condition, KIMBERLIN submitted a directive permitting Knopf to “deposit any monies which would otherwise be due me personally from Knopf (Random House) with Sandra DeLong.”22 On February 17, 1997 KIMBERLIN, who previously had claimed 100% ownership of BKE, Inc. on previous tax returns and appeared to control the corporation’s accounts which he used for personal expenses, first claimed that BKE, Inc. was wholly owned by his sister.
Despite these maneuvers, Mrs. DeLong on April 18, 1997 obtained an order from the Marion County, Indiana Superior Court garnishing the Knopf book money in order to satisfy a judgment which by then amounted to $1,610,000 plus interest and costs. The next day, petitioner notified Mrs. DeLong’s counsel that he would go into bankruptcy unless she settled with him on his terms. One week later Cynthia Kimberlin and her fiancé filed an involuntary bankruptcy proceeding against KIMBERLIN in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland.
In my opinion, BRETT KIMBERLIN is a weasel!!
