Judge Grants Facebook’s Motion To Dismiss Lawsuit By Self-Proclaimed Co-Owner Paul Ceglia

PaulCeglia650The bad news continues to roll in for self-proclaimed Facebook co-owner Paul Ceglia, as U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara ruled Tuesday to grant Facebook’s motion to dismiss Ceglia’s lawsuit against the social network and its co-founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, following the ruling by U.S. District Judge Andrew L. Carter Jr. earlier this month that Cegila must stand trial on mail fraud and wire fraud charges against him for submitting fake evidence and emails and destroying real evidence in his suit against Facebook and Zuckerberg.

According to CNET, Arcara granted Facebook’s motion to dismiss the case following the recommendation of U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York Judge Leslie Foschio, who ruled that Ceglia altered a contract between him and Zuckerberg prior to filing his lawsuit in 2010.
