Golb v. The Attorney General of the State of New York, 16-0452

Affirming some of the convictions and reversing others in a case involving more than 17 counts of criminal impersonation, forgery, and other criminal charges arising from a man's impersonation of Dead Sea Scroll scholars in order to bolster his father's theory about the scrolls' origin and discredit critics because literal interpretations of the impersonation statute were applied instead of narrowed interpretations established by the Court of Appeal and the criminal forgery statute was overbroad, but the impersonation statute was not unconstitutional.
