It happens with Penguin hit sites also. The Panda/Penguin/EMD penalty comes first with the direct result that you lose Authority, Only now can scrapers outrank you.
Confusingly, one of the reasons a site will be hit by Panda can be because of Duplicate Content. However, this duplicate content penalty can come from within your own site or from external sites, but those external sites will have better Authority then you, we're generally not talking about scraper sites when listing Duplicate content as a cause of a Panda penalty.
