You can justify a forfeiture. For example, I once loss a debate by forfeiture because I was moving places during the time of the debate. Forfeits can be due to time constraints, and what not.

Plagarism however, cannot be justified (or at least, not as easily). You can still win a debate if you forfeited one round, but if you're exposed for plagiarism in a debate, you're essentially screwed.
