to Afghanistan) blog post by John Hoff
This blog has refrained from writing about Peter Rickmyer for the past several months under a theory that giving publicity to "Spanky Pete" only encourages him to file more frivolous and vexatious paper in the courts. But, ultimately, I am a blogger. And if somebody can stop me from blogging about ANYTHING, well, then I'm losing and they're winning.
Furthermore, after an experiment of a few months, I've come to the conclusion that...
...the theory doesn't hold water. Spanky sued everybody in the neighborhood BEFORE he became famous for it, long before this blogger began writing about his doings rather, er, extensively. Click here for "blast from the past" blog posting from the good old days when Spanky was called Pete The Pedophile. Ah. Memories.
All Rise! Wait, That's Not What I Meant...
Peter Needs To Be Exposed! Wait, That's Not What I Meant...
Which is no skin off my back. In fact, I sort of LIKE the idea those blog postings are preserved in the archives of the courts and may live on for centuries. In fact, if I look at the broad historical trend, it would appear that publicizing the actions of Spanky Pete has actually HELPED the situation. Consider, if you will, how all of the following things happened AFTER this blog began writing about Peter.
1.) Peter was declared a frivolous litigant AFTER I blogged about him, which has greatly restricted his ability to sue innocent neighbors. Indeed, the focus of his lawsuits has been to cover the same old ground over and over, often trying to revive his old lawsuits.
2.) Peter was arrested AFTER I blogged about him, click here for article.
3.) Peter was sent to prison for a stretch AFTER I blogged about him, click here.
4.) Peter was removed from a court room, where he was stalking my Northside neighbors, AFTER I blogged about him. Click here.
There are more examples. But all in all, there was an ugly situation BEFORE Peter became famous, during which neighbors suffered in silence.
And then there was the situation AFTER Peter became famous, in which neighbors suffered (though not in silence) and Peter has received a small portion of his just deserts; restricted, removed, and incarcerated.
Peter is a virus. But documenting and publicizing his legal harassment is disinfecting sunlight.
Tedious Pete Meets Defeat
Well, recently, Tedious Peter tried to appeal the order which bars him from filing crap in Hennepin County District Court...
Needless to say (though God knows I'll say it anyway) things didn't go well for Spanky Pete. Here's a copy of the judge's order, click here.
A finely trained legal mind provided the following commentary upon the order, as follows:
