The Newbury Park Adventist Academy Mock Trial Team allegedly plagiarized a case! Principal Steve Laing received a call early last week informing him that they had been suspected of plagiarizing their case. What does this mean? No one really knows as mock trial is always based on real cases.
The leaders of the Mock Trial Organization are in close communication with Mr. Laing. The students are hoping the issues can be resolved quickly and without major problems.
Mock Trial member, Michael Negley, said, “It is a very frustrating situation, but I know Mr. Laing and the Mock Trial Team will do everything they can to fix the problem. Whatever it is.”
We have faith that the allegations will be dropped and the team will be able to compete in years to come. Whatever happens NPAA will stand by them and help them through these hard and confusing times.
