Supreme Court declines to hear Golb case

THE RAPHAEL GOLB CASE: Supreme Court Won't Take Case of Dead Sea Scrolls Defendant. The Supreme Court won't take up the case of a blogger convicted of criminally impersonating his father's academic rivals on the subject of the Dead Sea Scrolls (AP/US News).

HT Jim West.

I have been following the Raphael Golb internet impersonation case for years, because of its (sad) connection with the Dead Sea Scrolls. I suppose this means the appeals stop here. But I'm not a lawyer, so I don't know for sure.

Recent posts on the case are here, here, and here. And follow the links in those for many earlier posts.
