Articles posted last night by Politico and BuzzFeed revealed similarities in Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch‘s academic writing with sources he reportedly failed to acknowledge. The articles gave examples of how Gorsuch’s 2006 book, The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia used some of the same language as a 1984 Indiana Law Journal article by Abigail Lawlis Kuzma.
There is a problem with the accusation, the person Gorsuch allegedly plagiarised says he clearly did not
Kuzma herself, however, doesn’t have a problem with it. She said in a statement on the matter:
I have reviewed both passages and do not see an issue here, even though the language is similar. These passages are factual, not analytical in nature, framing both the technical legal and medical circumstances of the “Baby/Infant Doe” case that occurred in 1982. Given that these passages both describe the basic facts of the case, it would have been awkward and difficult for Judge Gorsuch to have used different language.
So, will this refutation of the baseless charge stop the Left? Of course not. Even after he is confirmed, the Democrats will keep repeating the accusation. It is what they do. It is telling how far they are willing to stoop to stop Gorsuch. It shows he is the right guy for the SCOTUS
