Other players chime-in on Aaron Brown’s resurfacing

by CyclingTips

After blogger Jim Budd posted an update as to the whereabouts of Aaron Timmer Brown, the man held liable for the missing money of the Paul Kimmage Defense Fund, Aaron Brown himself, now calling himself Tim Brown, responded to the post. Following that, the other players in the ongoing drama have chimed in, including Lesli Cohen, Brown’s former business partner in Cyclismas, and Bill Hue, the lawyer who represented the Kimmage donors in the court case, have provided their thoughts.

Cohen said that Brown’s responses were typical of him and that nothing has changed with the matter. “The money was stolen, it was proved in a court of law that he unlawfully took possession of it (the definition of stealing), and if, as he claims, the funds aren’t missing, then where are they and why has he refused to return them in spite of promises to the contrary on his ridiculous blog?”

Bill Hue echoed Cohen that the case against Brown was decided.

“His misunderstanding of and misstatements on the subject of the Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules pertaining to judicial ethics is astounding in its absurdity. That certainly is consistent with his other failed legal positions and contentions. “Brown lost on procedure. He lost on the merits. He lost as much as he could possibly lose. He failed to appeal. The Court concluded that his defenses were without merit. The legal matter and any arguments Brown once had are over and closed. Each and every argument has been decided against him by a neutral court of law having jurisdiction consisting of at least three separate presiding judges.”

Ironically, Aaron Brown, now Tim Brown, concluded his communication by threatening legal action against Budd.
