Well that didn’t last long.
Just yesterday the world rejoiced over the fact that real-life comic book villains Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss appeared to be finally taking their genetically engineered ball and going home, finally dropping their seemingly never-ending litigation against Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, who they’ve miraculously managed to turn into a wholly sympathetic figure in all of this.
Well not so fast my friend!
Olympic rowing twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are pushing ahead with another suit against Facebook, a day after they decided not to appeal a U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding their $65 million settlement with Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg.
In a status report filed on Thursday with the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts, the twins and their business partner, Divya Narendra, said they would move the court for discovery on whether Facebook “intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence” during settlement proceedings over claims that Zuckerberg stole their idea for a college social networking website.
The claim in the Massachusetts Court relates to documents and communications that would have thrown light on the exact relationship between the twins and Zuckerberg at the time of Facebook’s founding and says that Facebook should have disclosed those documents during the original settlement discussions.
Can we just start referring to them as the Winkletrolls from now on? U MAD?
