Talk:Eridani Light Horse lawsuit

Copypasta'ed[edit]

I created this article by copying over content from the Eridani Light Horse article that was added by an unregistered IP (68.110.113.204). 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 There is a lot of uncited and inflammatory language here ("confession", for one) and -while written in the style of a historical document- is clearly not presented as unbaised or as a scholarly work.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 08:22, 18 May 2014 (PDT)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 alex.kaempen.org 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)
