Paul Ceglia, the man behind the latest controversy involving Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his multi billion dollars worth social networking behemoth Facebook has reportedly passed a lie detector test, new reports revealed.
Ceglia, who claims that the Facebook founder owes him half of his stake in the site, was put through the test to check whether or not he is being honest with his claims.
Its primary focus was on the authenticity of the claims made by Ceglia regarding his alleged contract with Zuckerberg in 2003.
The report of the test, which could not detect any deception on the complainant’s part, was passed onto the federal court in Buffalo, N.Y by Ceglia’s lawyers on Friday.
Ceglia also opposed Facebook’s appeal to the court, seeking permission for reviewing the emails and contracts, the complainant allegedly exchanged with Mr. Zuckerberg in 2003.
"This latest court filing confirms that the bogus emails are, literally, a cut-and-paste job, just like the so-called contract is a fraud. There is a deafening silence in these papers: Ceglia does not dispute that he has a track record of forging documents to rip people off," Orin Snyder, a Gibson Dunn partner who is representing Zuckerberg and Facebook in this trial, said in an email statement, according to LA Times (opens in new tab).
