Apparently, courts have a problem with this

Bad: the Judge discovers that you plagiarised material for your legal brief.  (Full decision here – see page 6.)

Worse: the material was copied and pasted from Wikipedia.

Really, really awful: the issue was “ineffective assistance of Counsel.”

Really, really, horrendously, disastrously, catastrophic: you get caught again.  (See page 5.)

  1. Sounds like a standard Leftist selling “galobahl whaaaaarming” over and over again by the side of the road. They just. never. learn.

    (Not only was it faked data all the way through, that the liars were white-washed at Penn and East Anglia – now we have UN officials admitting that it’s primarily a money redistribution scheme. Still they tell us it’s about “saving the planet” and “justice.” Uh-huh.)

    Anyway, I don’t get this case at all. Vast majority of attorneys are truly gifted, intelligent beings. Sounds as it there may be another factor at play – drugs? booze? bi-polar?

    BTW, I met DanInVan today in another blog – ain’t seen the man in ages. Still has a great sense o’ humour. <— Note the correct spelling.

    Best,

  2. I did my best to find anything that would elicit this response:

    “Sounds like a standard Leftist selling “galobahl whaaaaarming” over and over again by the side of the road. They just. never. learn.”

    Failing completely I can only ask what I am missing.
