JEFF OTTERBEIN: SPORTS EDITOR (Hartford Courant)<p>The Big East notebook item on Syracuse on Page G5 in Courtside Tuesday by staff writer Ken Davis contained material that originally appeared in The Post-Standard of Syracuse, N.Y. Quotes from players and the basketball coach and the writer's words were taken from the story without attribution.<p>Plagiarism is a serious offense, which compromises our trust with the reader. We deeply regret the incident. Davis will be suspended for one month without pay and will return to The Courant sports department in a different role.<p>We apologize to the Syracuse newspaper and to our readers. <p>***"Suspended for one month"? "Will return to The Courant sports department in a different role"? That'll show him.***<p>[ January 24, 2003: Message edited by: blanp ]</p>
