Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg may soon come face to face with the man who claimed to be the co-owner of the social network, as Reuters reported that Zuckerberg will be called by the government to testify in its case against Paul Ceglia.
The 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.
The news continues to get worse for self-proclaimed Facebook co-owner Paul Ceglia, as U.S. District Judge Andrew L. Carter Jr. rejected Ceglia’s bid to dismiss mail fraud and wire fraud charges against him for submitting fake evidence and emails and destroying real evidence in his lawsuit against Facebook and Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
In the latest installment of the ongoing saga of the man who claims to own one-half of Facebook, Paul Ceglia entered a plea of not guilty Wednesday on one count each of mail fraud and wire fraud related to a contract with Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg that Ceglia allegedly doctored in an attempt to claim his Facebook stake.
