Mass. judge dismisses Winklevoss suit vs. Facebook
NEW YORK (AP) - A federal judge in Boston has dismissed a lawsuit against Facebook filed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, Harvard classmates of CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
The Winklevoss twins' claim that Zuckerberg stole the idea for Facebook from them got the full Hollywood treatment last year in the hit movie "The Social Network."
On Friday, Judge Douglas P. Woodlock from the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts dismissed the lawsuit the brothers filed in 2007.
In 2008, Facebook agreed to pay them $65 million in cash and stock, but they and partner Divya Narendra wanted more. The brothers said last month they would not appeal their case to the Supreme Court.
Facebook isn't commenting. A lawyer for the Winklevosses says a judgment had been expected.
