Ceglia v. Facebook update
Paul Ceglia of Wellsville was sanctioned by a federal judge yesterday and ordered to pay $5,000 to the court.The judge also ordered Ceglia to pay for part of Facebook's attorney fees and expenses, an amount likely to be substantially higher. The ruling by U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio is the latest and, perhaps, most significant legal victory to date for Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. Foschio, in ruling against Ceglia, cited his role in obstructing one of the judge's orders. The next step will have Facebook moving for a dismissal of the case.
