Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, more famously known as the Winklevoss Twins, have been ordered by a New York appellate court to pay $13 million in fees to a law firm which represented them.
The twins, who have been crying about how Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg cheated them since time immemorial, have failed to pay their law firm, which was hired by them for the initial $65 million settlement they had with Facebook.
The Winklevoss Twins earlier claimed that Zuckerberg stole their idea for Facebook and cheated them. For that, they received a $65 million settlement.
After the company’s value rose, the Winklevoss Twins filed another lawsuit, claiming that Facebook had committed fraud by not representing the true value of the company during the previous settlement. Since then, every petition filed by the twins has been thrown out by the courts.
Now, the twins have been ordered to pay the law firm, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, $13 million in fees despite the fact that the twins accused the law firms of malpractice and wanted to weasel away from paying the fees reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Perhaps, it’s time for the twins to put the entire matter to rest and get on with their lives and start their own company to rival that of Zuckerberg’s.
