Ever since Level Three Sex Offender Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer went to jail on or about March 10, and faced revocation of his parole, which ultimately did happen and he went to Lino Lakes...I suspected the reason for his incarceration involved an attempt to slap paper on this blog: some kind of bat-guano-crazy request for an "injunction" to keep this blogger from publishing photographs of his creepy face.
Peter Rickmyer--whose real name is Peter Richard Stephenson, and heaven only knows why the Department of Corrections (DOC) allows Spanky Pete to get away with using an alias--isn't ALLOWED to pursue lawsuits (or injunctions, attempts to obtain writs of mandamus, or other lawsuit-like actions) because he's been declared a frivolous litigant under Rule 9. This is, so I've gathered, an extraordinarily rare legal event. Your odds of meeting a "Rule 9 frivolous litigant" are about as great as your odds of meeting an albino snapping turtle.
Recently, I was unable to confirm the reason for Spanky Pete's incarceration when I was provided a document from his court file, visible above (click to make larger) in which Rickmyer alludes to...
...his attempt to obtain an injunction, which Rickmyer says was done "in the spirit" of Judge Blaeser's Rule 9 order.
Judge Swenson will apparently decide whether Peter was "in the spirit" during the Order To Show Cause hearing on April 11, at 9 a.m. Rickmyer is represented by attorney Jill Clark.
