Poorly Suited

Published June 16, 2012

The New York man claiming he’s entitled to a huge share of Facebook, Inc. is about to lose his ninth set of lawyers after his latest counsel asked the court for leave to withdraw after representing him for less than three months.

Paul Ceglia claims he has a contract with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg entitling him to half of Zuckerberg’s stake. The case is pending in federal court, but it has burned through nine sets of lawyers. “The revolving door of lawyers is yet additional evidence that this abusive lawsuit is a hoax and a fraud,” Facebook’s lawyer said.
