Winklevoss Twins File Second Lawsuit Against FACEBOOK!

By on 24 June, 2011


 

Only days after reports which suggested the Winklevoss twins had dropped their legal challenge against Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg, it now appears they have begun a second offensive!

 

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, the Olympic rowing twins, claim the world’s youngest billionaire stole their idea to create Facebook, and even though it was previously reported the twins had chosen to accept the initial $65 million settlement in their fight with Zuckerberg, the brothers have now decided to step up their battle. The twins and their partner Divya Narenda filed a motion in U.S District Court of Massachusetts today (24th June, 2011), seeking to determine whether Facebook Inc “intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence” during the initial court case.

Facebook reps did not immediately respond to the new filing, but a spokesman yesterday said the company “considered this case closed for a long time”. The twins and Narendra, classmates of Zuckerberg during their time at Harvard, claimed in the 2008 lawsuit that the Facebook founder stole the concept of his website from their ConnectU venture.

 

Zuckerberg‘s Facebook is now reportedly worth more than $100 billion, so it’s no wonder that people are now climbing out off the woodwork to try and claim slice of the pie.

His fight with the Winklevoss twins was depicted in the Oscar-winning movie ‘The Social Network‘, directed by David Fincher.
