“Ceglia Arrested over Claims in Facebook Lawsuit”

by Walter Olson on October 28, 2012

“Paul Ceglia, who sued Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2010, claiming he was promised a 50% share in the social media company, was arrested on Friday. His alleged crime: doctoring, fabricating and destroying evidence to support his claims. The feds described his lawsuit as a multi-billion dollar scheme to defraud Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg.” [Joe Palazzolo, WSJ Law Blog, Donna Tam, CNet]

Its not smart to prepare ridiculously faked documents.

Ask CBS News Anchor Dan Rather.

But, but, but… that can’t be right! So many people tell me that Dan Rather was perfectly ‘truthy’.

I’m surprised that someone in the software business was not aware of such basic pitfalls in forging email and other documents.
