Latest developments in Guy Who Says He Owns Facebook case

John Moe Aug 2, 2010

If you really want to know them.

Paul Ceglia, the fuel pellet salesman who says Marc Zuckerberg signed over control of Facebook to him a long time ago, now says that the reason he waited so long to go to court is that he only recently found this old contract, while going through papers following his arrest for fraud.

Meanwhile, Ceglia says that he has no interest in actually running Facebook and would happily hire Zuckerberg as an employee, which is awfully nice. Also, a new guy has stepped forward saying that since Ceglia was working for HIM at the time Ceglia hired Zuckerberg, HE should be the guy who actually owns Facebook. Aaaaand, so he’s going to sue.
