Facebook battle drags on in Massachusetts

Winklevoss twins pursue suit claiming Facebook didn’t divulge IMs during discovery

The infamous court clashes between Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg aren’t over yet.

The Winklevosses, as well as their business partner Divya Narendra, sued Zuckerberg in 2007 for allegedly stealing their idea for ConnectU—a social networking website for Harvard University students—and transforming it into Facebook. The legal battle came to a close with a settlement in 2008 in which the Winklevosses and Narendra received $20 million in cash and Facebook stock worth $45 million.
