Facebook ownership lawsuit back before NY judge

Nov 02, 2011

(AP) -- A New York man's claim that he's entitled to half ownership of Facebook is again before a federal judge.

Legal arguments are scheduled in Buffalo Wednesday in Paul Ceglia's lawsuit against the social network site and its founder .

The Wellsville man claims he's got a Zuckerberg-signed contract from 2003 that proves his case. Palo Alto, Calif.-based says the claim is baseless.

On Wednesday, attorneys are expected to discuss whether Ceglia has complied with the judge's order to give Facebook lawyers all files, electronic items and documents relevant to his lawsuit. Facebook says key items are missing.

It will be the first court hearing for Ceglia's newest attorney, Dean Boland of Lakewood, Ohio. Lawyers from at least four other firms have left Ceglia's legal team without saying why.
