Winkelvii, a day after ending legal battle with Facebook, start a new one

John Moe Jun 24, 2011

Cameron and Tyler Winkelvoss continue to augment their busy boat rowing schedule with litigation.

From the WSJ:

In a status report filed on Thursday in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the twins and their business partner Divya Narendra told the court that they would push for discovery in a claim that Facebook “intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence” during 2008 settlement proceedings over whether Mr. Zuckerberg stole their idea for a Harvard student social network.

So we’re not done with this yet. These suits will continue until the twins are robust and somewhat intimidating old men with funny names.

In a related story, an unnamed host of a public radio technology program can’t believe he’s still writing about this.
