Facebook Lawyers Strike Back Against Ceglia

More bad news for Facebook scammer Paul Ceglia. Shortly after the judge ordered him to reimburse Facebook almost $76,000 for legal fees in the false contract scam, an updated court filing shows new evidence that he knowingly fabricated the case against the social media giant and founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Work completed by digital forensic teams in relation to the case shows a number of email accounts created for the purpose of fabricating the case and shopping around for representation in the lawsuit. Documents of interest include different legal proposals from prospective lawyers and emails discussing details of the scam. Furthermore, Facebook lawyers compel the court, in the new filings, to grant subpoenas allowing the company to examine the accounts for further evidence.

There is no mention of whether Facebook is seeking further compensation for the aggravation of the case beyond the reimbursement or if they are seeking legal satisfaction from a criminal fraud case. Either way, there should be some repercussions for Ceglia beyond a monetary value. A lot of big companies get sued by people claiming they are owed something, and I believe many are probably false, but corporations would rather settle out of court to avoid bad publicity.

It seems like Ceglia was just hoping for a quick settlement. I think it’s justified that he has to reimburse them for their legal fees, but I think criminal charges should be filed if the evidence suggests that he masterminded the whole thing as part of a malicious scam or get-rich-quick scheme.

    major outlets continue to protect Mark and his “new image”. He is an admitted forgerer, he was forced to admit it under oath

    Zuckerberg is an admitted forger and an admitted hacker, Orrick, the firm accused of conspiring with Zuckerberg to deprive Eduardo Savrin of his shares in facebook

    Zuckerberg is an admitted forger and an admitted hacker, yet a read of the major media outlets shows what most people know already, that our “Free Press” slant the news to the big boss’s views. A luxury afforded the Billionaires of this world that clearly have their own agendas. Perhaps calling them out like this will force some two sided coverage of the story.

    Definitely a slanted article calling out Ceglia as having a “scam contract” ignoring Ceglia’s retort that attests his innocence, before anything is truly proven, mind you.

      “It seems like Ceglia was just hoping for a quick settlement.” Aren’t we all? It will take years, if he survives it.
