Paul Ceglia, who employed Mark Zuckerberg in 2003, claims that Mr. Zuckerberg, in writing, gave him rights to 84% of "The Face Book", which was a pet project that Zuckerberg was working on. Mr. Ceglia has filed suit in New York state court. He claims that he has a signed contract with Mr. Zuckerberg.
Previously, fellow Harvard classmates claimed that Zuckerberg appropriated code from the school’s ConnectU project. They settled out of court.
The most recent claim could prevent Facebook from going public, as the court has issued an injunction on trading of its shares. Facebook is now (foolishly) valued at over 24 billion dollars. (Does anyone want to buy a Dutch tulip?)
