Judge Dismisses Ceglia Lawsuit

A federal judge has dismissed a Wellsville man’s claims that he owns half of Facebook.

Late last week Judge Richard Arcara granted the motions of Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg to dismiss claims by Paul Ceglia.

In 2010 Ceglia claimed he had a contract with Zuckerberg that gave him half ownership in the multi-billion dollar company. Zuckerberg had said all along he had a contract with Ceglia but it had nothing to do with Facebook.

Two years ago federal authorities charged Ceglia for altering and fabricating documents, and destroying evidence, in an attempt to defraud Facebook and Zuckerberg.
