    There is quite a bit of this unquestionably unethical "copying" going on, but it should be noted that in imposing sanctions the Court was influenced by the fact that the attorney not only copied the scholarly article word for word, but selectively edited out comments and citations which were adverse to his client's position. As a result, the brief did not even honestly represent the work that was plagiarized. The improper practice of deliberately failing to cite adverse authority is now so common that it seems to go unnoticed most of the time.
