Paul Ceglia Fined $5,000 In Facebook Case

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

Facebook 1

An anonymous reader writes "U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Foschio has sanctioned Paul Ceglia, a man that claims he owns half Facebook, and ordered him to pay $5,000 to the court. The judge also ordered Ceglia to pay for part of Facebook’s attorney fees and expenses, an amount which will likely be much higher. The social networking giant plans to have Ceglia's lawsuit dismissed early this year."

Expert Witness (1)

I happen to live near Paul Ceglia. A few months ago, I was asked to be an expert witness by his attorney. Apparently, they wanted me to verify that some unencrypted, and not digitally signed emails were authentic. I couldn't get the lawyer to agree to pay me for all the time that I may be stuck in court. I thought it was strange.

I did some Googling before I signed the NDA. I saw the lawyers name associated with Ceglia along with news articles about other scams they tried to pull. I told the lawyer that they looked like the scourge of the earth online, and NO.

It paid extremely well, but I'm glad my company dodged that bullet.
