This follows their most recent efforts in re-opening the case against Facebook founder and former Harvard classmate, Mark Zuckerberg, with the Ninth Circuit Court that ruled against the appeal just last month. The twins allege that Zuckerberg stole their website idea back when they were enrolled in Harvard in order to create Facebook.
Determined to not let anything deter them in their quest for true justice, the twins\’ attorneys announced on Monday that they intend to file a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court in pursuit of an even larger payout. Their reasoning can be found in the press release that’s been published on All Things D by Howard Rice, the law firm representing the Winklevii and their business partner Divya Narendra. The release states that Facebook executives hid information about the company’s true value during their settlement negotiations, thereby committing security fraud.
We’ll be on standby to see if the Supreme Court gives them the satisfaction they’ve been looking for.
