Mark Zuckerberg, head of Facebook, has won yet another battle against his former classmates at Harvard who believe he stole the idea of the now-famous social-networking site from them.
The plaintiffs, twins featured in the movie about the ongoing conflict, “The Social Network”, are required to accept the settlement in cash and stock from Facebook, valued at $65 million, a federal appeals court ruled.
According to the twins, the deal should now be worth $160 million because of Facebook’s monumental success. They told a Suffolk County Personal Injury Lawyer that the deal was unfair because Facebook was not completely forthcoming with information as they negotiated the settlement.
The twins are very good negotiators and have a team of excellent attorneys at their disposal, noted a federal appeals judge. They tried to get more money, but now it’s time for them to turn the page. The decision of the court was unanimous.
“[The twins] are not the first parties bested by a competitor who then seek to gain through litigation what they were unable to achieve in the marketplace,” the judge wrote in his statement. “At some point, litigation must come to an end,” the judge continued. “That point has now been reached.”
Despite that, sources explained that the twins are still reviewing the decision and are consulting with their lawyers. They have not decided what their next step, if any, will be.
Some cases are certainly of higher profile than others, but that doesn’t make them more important than any other. To the people involved in the suit, their particular case is the most important in the world and a New York Injury Lawyer recognizes this. They will do all within their power to make sure their clients not only have their rights upheld, but that they get the compensation due to them. Fame, power, and the amount of money are irrelevant. What truly matters is if the client is given the solid legal protection and guidance that only a qualified professional can provide.
