Facebook Fight Back Against “Con Artist” Ceglia

Facebook’s long legal battle with Paul Ceglia continues as the social networking giant has filed a legal motion against the claimant. Ceglia a convicted felon and woodchip salesman is demanding half of the billion dollar company which he believes he is entitled to.

This whole case stems back to Facebook’s early days, when Ceglia supposedly helped Mark Zuckerberg fund the venture. It was claimed that Ceglia could have been owed as much as 84% of Facebook, but he suspiciously decided to settle for an attempt for 50%. Mashable has reported that Facebook has new evidence that implicates Ceglia as a fraud and kills his plea dead.

A 27 page motion has been filed, laying out several points which show that Ceglia has changed his story and is using false documentation to back up their facts. Facebook has referred to Ceglia as a “professional con artist” and claimed that some of the contracts that he has provided are “cut and paste jobs”. They have also had to beat off the advances of the Winklevoss twins in the courtroom this year.

It is clear that Facebook are looking to make an example of Ceglia as well as defend themselves from his extravagant claims. They want to embarrass him by attacking his credibility and highlighting his previous history as a criminal and fraudster. Ceglia could find himself with another fraud conviction opposed to half of a company worth over $50 billion.

    Facebook hired a computer forensics firm, a linguistics expert, a document authentication expert and a private detective to battle Ceglia’s allegations. If Ceglia was looking for a quick settlement from Facebook, he may have misjudged his opponent; or is Mark Zuckerberg & his company, Facebook, are just dishonest sociopath scum.
