Paul Ceglia is a guy that is claiming partial ownership of Facebook, and has been doing his damnedest to prove this in court. The battle has been going on for over a year. More background here.
Last time we checked in on the Facebook vs. Paul Ceglia storyline, Facebook was claiming to have “smoking gun” evidence that the contract Ceglia has presented was fabricated.
Now, Ceglia says Facebook has planted a photoshopped contract, which the company filed, on his computer. ZDNet has a letter from him, which begins:
We have known about this photoshopped “image” for some time and i willingly handed it over to them, now they claim it is the original and that there are other files I’m intentionally not handing over, when I gave over their doctored page 1.. It’s laughable… they make this stuff up as they go along.
I believe based on the fact that Orin Snyder argued almost exclusively for my parents computers, the location where the so called “image” was discovered that either Orin Snyder is clairvoyant and had a premonition that his “smoking gun” was on my parents computer or he knew in advance that it was planted there. Perhaps by Zuckerberg himself and perhaps by Orrick, the firm Eduardo Savrin accused of conspiring with Zuckerberg to deprive him of his shares during his case. If that is the case then they are subornating perjury and conspiring along with Zuckerberg to protect the empire and this time they are going to get caught. Eduardo Savrin, the bus is rolling, just needs a little push from the sidelines.
It was expected that this case was about wrapped up (in Facebook’s favor), but it appears that it may go on after all.
It’s still not looking that great for Ceglia, his history has followed him throughout the case, and he’s already been dropped by a handful of law firms.
According to BetaBeat, he has a site set up at PaulsCase.com, where he’s “crowdsourcing his case.” If you actually go to the site, there doesn’t appear to be a whole lot of usefulness without a login.
