Plagiarism in judges’ decisions?

Not a happy thought

The background here is a trademark dispute between The Gap and a local business called Salt of the Earth. After an 8 year battle, the judge presiding over the matter has allegedly copied most of his judgment from one party’s court papers without any reference to the arguments presented by the other. There doesn’t appear to be an indication that the judge has considered all the issues carefully and the judge is now refusing to recuse himself from an application for leave to appeal the decision.
