Members of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood,

The Chamber of Justice has convened and issued a verdict in the pending case of DB v. Soren Leonis. Following an investigation, Soren was charged with one count of Cheating and and one count of Plagiarism.

The detailed Verdict and Justicar's Opinion for the case can be found in the PDF file linked below. Please note that the written opinion is generally found on the page after announcement of the verdict.

The verdict was as follows:

Case #064 - DB v. Soren Leonis - Opinion PDF

  • One Count of Cheating: GUILTY
  • One Count of Plagiarism: GUILTY
  • Punishment:
    • Demotion to Journeyman 4;
    • Disqualification from "[GJW XIV Phase I] Fiction - The Old Tongue";
    • Loss of Medals and Credits earned from Great Jedi War XIV;
    • Letter of Reprimand permanently applied to the member’s dossier;
    • Strict Probation for 6 months (no promotions, no position appointments) followed by 6 months General Probation.

Please note that while we always take plagiarism and cheating seriously, misconduct during a vendetta is especially egregious. This is our first GJW cheating case in five years. I hope it's our last.

Signed and sealed in Justice,

Plagiarism is one of those things that makes my blood boil, as a writer and English teacher.

Folks, do not plagiarize. Not only is it unethical, but it also spits in the face of the original content creator. It's not only a form of theft, but also an erasure of the author's identity and self expression. Just don't.
