cabbie, he claimed that he tried changing the homepage text twice over the last few years with no success. That's part of the reason why I thought his meta descriptions may be harming him. Though he changed the homepage text, he never resolved the meta description issues he had going on.
The copied homepage text is an ongoing problem. I could see the time/date stamps on the copied content and someone definitely has it in for this guy. Even if he changes his text on the homepage, I would gather it would only be a day or two before someone copied that and started competing with him. Where they are placing the copied content is on high authority blogs (mostly Google owned). Maybe a news feed/dynamic content on his homepage would help in this situation?
