Talk:Eridani Light Horse lawsuit


I created this article by copying over content from the Eridani Light Horse article that was added by an unregistered IP ( It was removed again by another (reverted to the article's previous text) and I expressly agree with that move, with admin hat on. However, I've also been meaning to write an article about the ELH lawsuit for some time and although it needs a lot of work I chose to use this text as a basis. Other users are welcome to edit and improve this page; it is explicitly not a "work in progress" by myself. But please take care to keep a neutral stance and a factual and encyclopedic writing style, as this is a sensitive topic. Frabby (talk) 14:42, 15 May 2014 (PDT)

I agree that this version be used as a structure/placeholder only. There is a lot of uncited and inflammatory language here ("confession", for one) and -while written in the style of a historical document- is clearly not presented as unbaised or as a scholarly work.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 08:22, 18 May 2014 (PDT)
Wow... a link to this page was posted over to a thread at LOTB. Prior to that I don't think I knew it existed. I think everything except "The Judgement" can be deleted and even that needs clean-up. Probably add a short paragraph for an unbiased overview.--Cache (talk) 13:22, 6 July 2016 (PDT)
If you're looking for some factual material on the case, there's a court ruling:
Follow-up denial of appeal:
Denial of Supreme Court hearing:
So my next questions: Is it considered plagiarism if I copy parts of the court rulings verbatim? While I trust the court documents on are the real thing, is that website considered a legitimate source that can be cited?--Cache (talk) 15:30, 17 August 2016 (PDT)
Use the passages as cited quotes, that is never plagiarism. Dark Jaguar (talk) 16:05, 17 August 2016 (PDT)
