Copy that 

Kimberly Swygert points to a student who is suing his university in Britain for not catching him cheating sooner.
I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this fiasco, because three idiotic concepts are at work here. First is the issue of Gunn not realizing plagiarism was "a problem;" that statement alone should qualify him as too dense for a university degree. Second is the charge made by Gunn that it somehow shouldn't count against him that the university didn't figure out what he was doing right off the bat. ...

The third batty idea here is that Gunn thinks he'll be able to find a solicitor to take his case. At least, I hope that's a batty, as opposed to doable, plan.

She also links to Fark's commentary, which is good scrollfood if I can find it. Can't nail the link yet, though. Gotta run, I'l find it later.
