"Raphael Golb is accused of multiple felony and misdemeanor counts of forgery, identity theft, criminal impersonation, and aggravated harassment against New York University professor Dr. Lawrence Schiffman." 

These charges are a ridiculous exaggeration, and a misuse of the law.

Robert Cargill also wrote:

"the following are the transcripts of two affidavits in support of search warrants to search the home of raphael golb, son of university of chicago oriental institute historian norman golb. golb was later arrested and charged with criminal impersonation, forgery, identity theft, and aggravated harassment in connection with an anonymous internet smear campaign involving scholars studying the dead sea scrolls. in particular, golb was charged with the criminal impersonation of new york university dr. lawrence schiffman. below, the court filings will show evidence of forged emails purportedly sent by multiple aliases of raphael golb that attempt not only to accuse falsely dr. schiffman of plagiarizing golb’s father, norman golb, but admit to the plagiarism on dr. schiffman’s behalf, without his knowledge, using first person language, and signing the emails ‘lawrence schiffman.’"

Bob Cargill, it was obvious to Schiffman, and the other recipients of e-mails, that the writer of the e-mails was NOT Lawrence Schiffman.

Second, it was obvious to Lawrence Schiffman that he was being accused of plagiarism of Norman Golb's work. His sensitivivity in resorting to law proves that there is truth in the accusations.  The writer of the emails did not "accuse falsely" as you claim, but truthfully. 

Lawrence Schiffman has written books for the general public to buy. He can write what he likes. A member of the public has responded to what he has (or rather has not) written. In picking a fight with a member of the public, he has chosen a path to ruin.
