Fasinating reading in 23 parts on LOW CARB EXAMINER
I love that Judge
Friday morning update seems those lawyers are still talking in the court room so we will just have to wait to toss the confetti pop the corks and celebrate the demise of that nutrtionally bankrupt diet website and the lying liar who lies being found guilty of fraud in the civil case.
Hope that Riverside DA is gathering all the testimony from the civil case to use in Kimmer’s criminal case they will be filing. The 5th can’t be invoked for testimony she already made. :)

Kimmer, AKA Heidi Diaz, has been ordered by the judge to post on the Kimkins.con site the notice telling member who wish to opt out of the class action settlement what they need to do.
the final wording of this message will be approved in court on OCT 29 2009
Can’t wait to see how Kimmer spins this one after telling the kimkins.con membership that the class action suit was denied just one month ago.
it will also be posted on one of the DUCKs blogs
Kimmer has been posting inside the kimpire that the summary judgement was denied.
However the word denied never appears in the ruling. The judge said the motions were premature and the following needed to be done.
the court ordered Kimmer’s side to meet with John on OCT 15th in DEPT 5 of the court to discuss a method to notify potential class reps ( that would be all memebers of kimkins.con before Oct of 07), extent of damages incurred, and details of opting out for those who don’t want to be covered by the judgement should they wish to sue for damages too.
it is a far cry from being denied.
here is a copy of court order so everybody can see it
