Facebook is suing four separate law firms that represented Paul Ceglia in his 2010 case against the social network. Four years ago, Ceglia made a claim that he owned 84 percent of the social network, and it took until 2013 for a court to rule that his claim was not legitimate. A judge found that his claim was just "recently created fabrication."
The company is now suing all of the law firms that helped Ceglia because Facebook claims the firms were aware Ceglia had forged the ownership documents. DLA Piper, Millberg LLP, Paul Argentieri & Associates, and Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP all helped Ceglia fight in his case.
Ceglia will be in court as a result of the new case against the firms, but Facebook has not filed a lawsuit against him personally.
