Gorsuch is a plagiarist

Politico lays out a side-by-side that Neil Gorsuch rips off other peoples' text. One such plagiaree was one Abigail Lawlis Kuzma. Breitbart offers a defence - Left Wing Conspiracy:

Kuzma... flatly refuted the attack. “I have reviewed both passages and do not see an issue here, even though the language is similar,” she began. “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.”

That's mighty white of Kuzma to take one for the team. But just because Saint Mark has returned to the pulpit to commend Matthew's Gospel, doesn't exonerate Matthew.

And Breitbart needs to learn the difference between "refute" and "rebut". They also should have supplied the textual side-by-side: Discovery - it's a bitch. Since Breitbart didn't, they concede that the other side's case is a strong one. (National Review does a little better.)

It's too late now, since Gorsuch is on the Court. Fellow justice Elena Kagan relates to us that a new Justice is expected to be note-taker... during the Justices-only deliberations. He is demonstrably qualified for that much. Although he'll need help in discerning between who said what.
