Facebook Judge All But Dismisses Zuckerberg Lawsuit

The judge in the Facebook case all but put a fork in the lawsuit today, when he told the Winklevoss twins to go find “proof” that Mark Zuckerberg had broken a contract when he stole their idea.

“Dorm room chit-chat does not make a contract,” the Judge reportedly noted, before sending the brothers packing.

The Winklevosses and co-plaintiff have two weeks to find evidence of a contract, or the lawsuit will be dismissed.  And because if the Winklevosses and co-plaintiff had evidence of a contract, they would already have submitted it in their filing motions, we can conclude that the lawsuit is pretty much done.  Telegraph.
