Copy-Paste Court Culture
An interesting posting at the Volokh Conspiracy on a U.S. District Court that copy-pasted a proposed opinion and presented it as its own. It did not even try to keep up the facade of judicial impartiality. A Circuit Court remanded this practice and both the District Court's opinion and the appellee's proposed opinion that was plundered, are attached to the Circuit Court's opinion. Get it? Seek the differences.
