I bet at least one document in every lawsuit is "plagiarized"

Is it even possible to "plagiarize" the Complaint a lawsuit? Lawyers copy each other's pleadings all the time (without any citation). There's an entire industry based on that practice of rampant copying: the legal forms business.

Maybe this is an example when reporters (from the world of writing, where copying without attribution is a major offense) peek into a place with very different ideas of what is acceptable.
