7 Plagiarism Examples By not reaching the issue of educational malpractice, the court missed an opportunity to definitively hold that there is no duty to effectively educate.

8 Plagiarism Examples The doctrine’s tort bar does not, however, cover claims involving personal injury See Ralph A. Anzivino, The False Dilemma of the Economic Loss Doctrine, 93 MARQ. L. REV. 1121, 1121 (2010) (commenting that a manufacturer can be sued in tort if its “defective product causes personal injury”) FROM: Joe Johnson, Torts: An Alternative Approach to Glorvigen v.

9 Plagiarism Final Thoughts Don’t plagiarize! Review Sections 11 and 12 of the College Handbook When in doubt: Consult a friend, colleague, professor, librarian or board member Err on the side of caution and add a citation/quotation marks/etc.

10 Recording CS Hours Hours must be recorded online through your Student Records page Instructions: Project Name[AuthorLastName]_[ProjectName] Graham_SourcePull Graham_Proof1 Assigned byEditor last name DateDue date HoursTo the nearest tenth of an hour CommentsDescribe what you did

11 Feedback Folder GOAL: Opportunity for you to see if your changes and comments were accepted by the editor Process: Everyone will receive an invitation to join Dropbox after the staff meeting today. Please sign up and join. Editors will upload post-AC2 and post-Proof versions of each article to the Dropbox “Feedback Folder” You may open and read the articles to check your work (Note: please do not make any changes to the articles).

12 Bluebook, CMOS and AC Notes Points of focus for today: Hyphens, en-dashes and em-dashes When to comment vs. when to make the change Order of signals Short cites for cases

13 Hyphens, en-dashes and em-dashes Read page 52 of the Staff Manual for a quick refresher Hyphens (CMOS 6.76–6.77): Hyphens are used: in compound words (e.g., twenty-one) to separate numbers that are not inclusive (e.g., ) to separate letters when a word is spelled out (e.g., C-A-T) En-Dashes (CMOS 6.78): The en-dash is used primarily to connect ranges of numbers (e.g, 654–59). Em-Dashes (CMOS 6.82–6.89): The em-dash is the most commonly used dash; it can be used to amplify, explain or set off a phrase in the middle of a sentence. E.g., The evidence was enough—on its own—to convince the judge. -- —— ––

14 Hyphen, en-dash, or em-dash? En-dash: Sicoli v. Rochat, 343 N.W.2d 748, 756–59 (Minn. 1989). Hyphen: Sicoli’s friend was twenty-seven years old. Em-dash: Rochat responded with a harsh gesture—one that Sicoli would not soon forget. Sicoli v. Rochat, 343 N.W.2d 748, 756__59 (Minn. 1989). Sicoli’s friend was twenty__seven years old. Rochat responded with a harsh gesture__one that Sicoli would not soon forget.

15 To comment, or not to comment, that is the question. Chief Justice John Marshall played a pivotal role in the development of Federal Indian Law by deciding to treat an Indian tribe as a “domestic community” instead of a foreign community See Worcester v. Georgia, 31 U.S. 515, 584 (1832). The quoted language and support for the text is on 583, not 584. Should the staffer have left a comment or made the change?

16 Citing a Bluebook Rule 159 See Cronen v. Radaj, 442 N.W.2d 758, 759–62 (Minn. 2011). Pre-AC Post- AC 159 See Cronen v. Radaj, 442 N.W.2d 758, 759–62 (Minn. 2011). Italicized the “See” per BB R. 2.1(d). Was it appropriate to leave a comment citing the applicable Bluebook rule? When is it appropriate to provide a Bluebook cite?

17 Order of Signals 29 See Worcester v. Georgia, 31 U.S. 515, 584 (1832); e.g., Carcieri v. Salazar, 555 U.S. 379 (2009); but see Strate v. A-1 Contractors, 520 U.S. 438 (1997); U.S. C ONST. art. I, § 9. Pre-AC 1 Post BB R 1.3 Post BB R E.g., Carcieri v. Salazar, 555 U.S. 379 (2009); see Worcester v. Georgia, 31 U.S. 515, 584 (1832). But see Strate v. A-1 Contractors, 520 U.S. 438 (1997); U.S. C ONST. art. I, § E.g., Carcieri v. Salazar, 555 U.S. 379 (2009); see Worcester v. Georgia, 31 U.S. 515, 584 (1832). But see U.S. C ONST. art. I, § 9; Strate v. A-1 Contractors, 520 U.S. 438 (1997).

18 Special short form for case cites In Peterson v. Kieselbach, the Court decided that Peterson did have an ERISA claim against the defendant U.S. 100, 101–09 (2013). Is this correct? Yes. R 10.9(a)(i): “Omit the case name... only if the reader will have no doubt about the case to which the citation refers.” The Court reversed Judge Posner’s decision in Peterson v. Kieselbach, but upheld it in Ervin v. Wheeler U.S. 100, 101–09 (2013). Is this correct? No. There is “doubt about the case to which the citation refers.”

19 Super Staffers! Jacob Abdo “Jacob went above & beyond the call of duty in both an AC1 and a Proof1. He went the extra mile to supply some statutory research that the author had left as something to fill in later that likely would have landed on the editor & EE's plates if not added so early during the AC process.” “He identified a bluebook ambiguity that we are including in staff training and may consider adding to our local rules (dropping case name in a short form when the case is cited within the text).” James Schoeberl Received a 5 on an AC
