So maybe Tyler Winklevoss won't be updating his "pursuer of justice" Twitter profile after all. A mere day after everyone thought he and his twin brother Cameron had given up a long-running quest to get their share of Mark Zuckerberg's money by not pursuing a settlement appeal to the Supreme Court, they're back again. Yesterday, they claimed in a court filing in Massachusetts that, according to Bloomberg and Reuters, they are seeking to find out if Facebook "intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence" during prior settlement claims.
Facebook's lawyers, who yesterday issued a statement to The New York Times saying "We’ve considered this case closed for a long time, and we’re pleased to see the other party now agrees," are now back on the defensive. "These are old and baseless allegations that have been considered and rejected previously by the courts," Facebook lawyer Neel Chatterjee now described in a statement. The Winklevii's lawyer told Bloomberg, that they are "relying on a federal rule that allows judges to re-open litigation if important information wasn't produced." The twins have already received $65 million from previous claims.
