Leaked Documents Revisit Winklevoss VS Zuckerberg Drama

Court documents related to the two year old lawsuit between Facebook and Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have been revealed.

The files reveal that the twins urged the courts to reverse their $65 million settlement, believing that they were entitled to more money and stock options.

According to Radar Online, the documents were filed by Facebook on 10 August relating to the claims made by ConnectU, a social networking platform owned by the Winklevoss twins.

The identical twins, who went to Harvard University with Facebook's founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, have insist that Zuckerberg stole the idea of creating Facebook from them when they had approached him to make a similar website, which is now ConnectU.

According to Cnet, the social network clarified that the documents don't indicate anything new, saying in a statement: “There is no new litigation between Facebook and the Winklevosses. The only recent litigation activity is when the Winklevosses recently lost their malpractice action against their former law firm, Quinn Emmanuel.”
