  1. Good Lord. From your post, I had assumed that she had just copied one post. But her entire blog is just a reposting of his entire blog.

    The worst one is the "Pro Bono Free Speech Case", because he said at the end of the first paragraph that he would be writing a brief about it. I guess she figured it was fine to copy that one as well, since I'm sure she plans to rip off that brief as her own work as well.

  2. Wow. It gets even better. There's a new winner for worst example of plagiarism.
