Facebook case not over yet

Facebook accused of 'suppressing evidence'

Well it doesn’t look like Mark Zuckerberg and the Winklevosses will be adding each other as friends just yet. Despite settling for $65 million (£48 million) with Zuckerberg and Facebook yesterday, the twins, along with their partner Divya Narendra, have now asked the court in Massachusetts to determine whether Zuck “intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence.”

So it seems the case isn’t quite closed just yet.

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss accused Zuckerberg in 2008 of stealing their idea for ConnectU, a social networking site that Facebook closely resembles, according to the pair. Now they’re claiming Facebook has thwarted their new lawyer’s efforts to file a motion for discovery and relief.

The new filing states that once discovery is complete, i.e. Facebook reveals this evidence it’s accused of suppressing, the twins will seek appropriate relief.

There was no comment from Facebook on this latest twist, but a spokesperson said yesterday that it’d “considered this case closed for a long time.”
