My Thyroid Made Me Do It

Federal magistrate Jennifer Rimmer has quit after being exposed as a plagiarist.

In a scandal that rocked the Federal Magistrates Court, The Courier-Mail revealed in March that Ms Rimmer had copied significant parts of three separate judgments without attribution.
At the time Ms Rimmer blamed her plagiarism on a thyroid condition and overwork.
And here I thought it was her incompetancy.
