How not to practice law: Copy and Paste

I have not posted a new entry in the ongoing series on "how not to practice law," so here is a new installment.

A federal appeals court recently ordered an attorney to pay damages after he filed a brief that contained virtually the same text as his trial court summary judgment brief. In Conboy v. U.S. Small Business Administration, the court granted the appellee’s motion for damages pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 38 for filing a frivolous appeal.  The ABA section on litigation has the story here (if you are an ABA member).
