Winklevoss twins appeal Facebook ruling

Posted on

Just one week after losing their appeal to re-open their 2008 settlement against Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are appealing the court’s decision. The Associated Press is reporting the Winklevoss twins are asking the federal appeals court to reconsider their opinion that the Harvard alums accept the terms of their settlement. Back in 2008, the Winklevosses accepted $20 million in order to drop their suit against Facebook that alleged Zuckerberg had stolen their idea for the social media site.
