It has been proven again, Greediness has no end and Winklevoss brothers are the perfect example of this. Within 24 hours of withdrawal the previous case against Facebook, twins have sued Facebook –again. Just few days ago, the twins dropped their plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to void previous legal ruling upholding a settlement originally valued $65 million – but now worth an additional $35 million because Facebook’s share value has been appreciated.
Many legal analyst and Facebook appreciated such move and thought that would be end of the road. But winklevoss had some other plans in their minds. The Twins and their business partner Divya Narendra said they had the doubt about the Facebook valuation which was presented to them at the time of settlement and therefore they have asked the judge to re-investigate whether Facebook “intentionally and inadvertently surpassed evidence”, according to the Loa angles Times.
Last year Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg allegedly sent some pesky messages while he was at Harward to the Connect U business partner which was later leaked to couple of media outlets. Twins and Narendra want the Boston federal court of look into their claims that Facebook and its lawyer hid the instant messages from them during litigation. That request has already been suspended during the U.S. Supreme Court appeal.
“These are old and baseless allegations that have been considered and rejected previously by the courts,” Neel Chatterjee, an attorney for Facebook, said on the record.
However, Legal analysts don’t see any much hope this time around, and this may be the last attempt by twins to get holds Facebook into any legal battle. But knowing the background and previous acts in this regards, Twins are capable enough to surprise us with anything – probably 50% of Facebook 🙂
