Paul Ceglia Tells Lawyer Not To Turn Over E-Mail Data

Paul Ceglia, the man that claims to own over half of Facebook, has told his lawyers not to comply with a court order to turn in e-mail data. Facebook had asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Foschio in Buffalo, New York to request Paul Ceglia and his lawyers to turn over e-mail accounts and passwords.

Paul Ceglia claimed that he hired Mark Zuckerberg as a freshman at Harvard University in 2003 that guaranteed him a stake in Facebook. Facebook said that the contract was a forgery.

“I informed Mr. Ceglia that the court had ordered him to produce, among other things, accounts and passwords for all email accounts he had used since 2003,” said one of Ceglia’s lawyers Jeffrey Lake. “Mr. Ceglia instructed me not to comply with this provision and to bring the issue before (U.S.) District Judge (Richard) Arcara.”

    I have being following this story since the start and have seen a lot of evidence on Ceglias side which is not being broadcasted because it is damning to FB. Why isnt the expert views in favour of Ceglia who all agree Ceglia's evidence is authentic? .Lets take this simple fact of email preservation, Ceglia and Zuckerberg used a program called Webmail to email eachother and anyone with any computer knowledge knows that Webmail deletes sent email in order to avoid exceeding storage limits. So according to Ceglia he copied the headers and texts of these emails into word documents in 03-04 in order to not loose them by leaving them in Webmail to be deleted at a later date and put them on floppy discs..comouter forensic expert Jerry Gran after analyzing them says they are consistent with how Ceglia says he copied and saved them here is a link to Ceglias Lawyers website it contains grants evidence along with others and i have to say its quite convincing… .. Ther is much more evidence you just have to look at the facts,, unfortunately the media is refusing to report such facts. Or what about Michael McGowans biased analysis of Ceglias computer, at while ago McGowan outlined a framework on how to find out the authencity of such things, he used them on Ceglias computer but refused to use the same framework when analysing the computers of Zuckerberg
