Mark Zuckerberg must be used to people claiming they own Facebook by now, the latest man is Paul Ceglia. He claims that a contract forged between himself and Mark Zuckerberg in 2003 entitles him to half of the Facebook empire, unfortunately for him he does have a track record of forging documents to ‘rip people off’.
When recently questioned about the deal between himself and Zuckerberg a polygraph test told a different story. His legal team claims that Ceglia passed the polygraph test and that they have forwarded the results to the Federal court in Buffalo on Friday.
Ceglia’s lawyers have also opposed Facebook’s request to the court to see the documents from the deal which included several emails and contracts from 2003. Zuckerberg’s lawyers are obviously keen to quash the claim.
Orin Snyder, who is part of the legal team representing Facebook said “This latest court filing confirms that the bogus emails are, literally, a cut-and-paste job, just like the so-called contract is a fraud. There is a deafening silence in these papers: Ceglia does not dispute that he has a track record of forging documents to rip people off”.
Celglia’s has passed a polygraph test, which he hopes will get the courts attention. However, this is just one small aspect of a much larger case which we are sure will have many twists and turns before a final conclusion is made.
