Paul Ceglia claims he should own half of Facebook. He also has consistent trouble retaining lawyers. And, according to Facebook, he's a fraud and they have proof.
The court filing, posted on Bloomberg, reads: "Embedded in the electronic data on Ceglia's computer ... Defendants have uncovered smoking-gun evidence that the purported contract at the heart of this case is a fabrication."
Ceglia, as has been well-documented, has a history of forgery. His claim stems from an alleged $1,000 investment in Mark Zuckerberg's project, "the Facebook," back when Zuckerberg was at Harvard.

Facebook has, of course, actively assailed the allegations in every manner possible. During the process, Ceglia has been dropped by at least four law firms.
