RE: Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al., GJH-13-CV-3059
REQUEST TO FILE A MOTION TO COMPEL PLAINTIFF'S COMPLIANCE WITH RULE 5
Dear Judge Hazel:
Pursuant to the Case Management Order (ECF No. 97), I ask the Court's
permission to file a motion to compel Plaintiffs compliance with Fed R. Civ. P. 5. In
his letter dated July 24,2014 (ECF No. 167), Plaintiff mentions a motion for a
preliminary injunction. He has served no such motion on me. This is not the first
time he has either failed to serve me or grossly delayed service to me. Judge Grimm
specifically admonished him about failure to serve me with court papers in a Letter
Order. See ECF No. 26 at 2. Plaintiffs flouting of Rule 5 and the Court's specific
instructions
1
on service severely prejudices my ability to defend the instant lawsuit.
"[T]here are certain immutable principles of justice which inhere in the very idea of
free government which no member of the Union may disregard, as that no man
shall be condemned in his person or property without due notice and an opportunity
of being heard in his defence." Holden v. Hardy, 169 U.S. 366, 389-390 (1898).
"'The fundamental requisite of due process of law is the opportunity to be heard.'
Grannis v. Ordean, 234 U.s. 385, 394 [1914]. This right to be heard has little
reality or worth unless one is informed that the matter is pending and can choose
for himself whether to appear or default, acquiesce or contest." Mullane v. Central
Hanover Bank Trust Co., 339 U.S. 306, 314 (1950).
1 Most recently, Plaintiff has not obeyed the Court's order to serve the Second
Amended Complaint on the Defendants. See ECF No. 133 at 1. I have not been
served, nor, on information and belief, have Messrs. McCain, Stranahan, or Walker.

I gather from reading Mr. Levy's correspondence (ECF No. 166) that Plaintiff
is attempting to file his motion under seal and that he does not intend to provide
service to me or any of the other pro se Defendants. I have contacted Messrs.
McCain, Stranahan, and Walker, and they have told me that they have not received
service of the court paper mentioned in Mr. Levy's letter, although Mr. Walker has
obtained it by other means.
My motion will be no longer that five or six pages. There will be no more
than four exhibits.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
Very truly yours,
