Plain and simple...you should NOT have to be going through it at all! Google CAN be retarded sometimes...IF they are indeed as smart as they think they are, this should NEVER happen. Your site was up first and indexed first...so you think that another, new site showing up with your IDENTICAL content would AUTO-goto the trash heap. Google should go to his page, index it, say...WHOA! ALERT! ALERT! something is wrong here and TRASH it instantly and remove THAT site from their index. Shame on you, Google, for letting that happen to people.
Unreal, sorry to hear about your troubles.
