WNY man's Facebook suit dropped
Buffalo, N.Y. (AP) -- A federal judge has dismissed a Southern Tier man's multibillion-dollar lawsuit claiming half-ownership of Facebook.
The judge, in Buffalo, granted Facebook and founder Mark Zuckerberg's motion to dismiss Paul Ceglia's lawsuit.
Ceglia, 40, of Wellsville, claimed he and Zuckerberg signed a 2003 software development contract that included a provision entitling him to half-ownership of Facebook in exchange for startup money for the budding company.
Facebook lawyers said the two had a contract, but references to Facebook were slipped in for the lawsuit.
