Paul Ceglia Must Reimburse Facebook Nearly $90K

The beating goes on for Paul Ceglia and his ill-fated claim to one-half of Facebook, as U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York Judge Leslie Foschio ordered Ceglia to reimburse Facebook for almost $90,000 in attorney fees.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Foschio ordered Ceglia to pay for depositions that were called off at the last minute, as well as travel and lodging expenses for experts that were slated to testify on behalf of the social network.

Ceglia is probably happy to see the business portion of this week come to an end, as he was also indicted on one charge apiece of mail fraud and wire fraud (he pleaded not guilty), as well as facing the possibility of losing yet another lawyer in Dean Boland, who has asked to withdraw from Cegila’s sinking case against Facebook and Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

At least the Winklevii have each other, not to mention piles of cash.
