Paul Ceglia, the western New York man claiming part-ownership of Facebook Inc., e-mailed the “authentic contract” disproving his claim to a law firm in 2004, a lawyer for the company told a judge.
Orin Snyder told U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Foschio at a hearing in Buffalo, New York, yesterday that Ceglia sent the contract, which made no mention of Facebook, to a lawyer at the firm Sidley Austin LLP the year after Ceglia claims he signed a contract with Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg giving him an equal share in the company.
The contract Facebook says is genuine was found both on Ceglia’s computer and Sidley Austin’s e-mail server, Snyder told Foschio. Snyder said the evidence proves Ceglia fabricated the contract on which he bases his claim.
