Paul Ceglia Thanks Arrest For Reminding Him Of Facebook Ownership

The man suing Facebook for 84% ownership of the social networking site has told Bloomberg that he can thank a state fraud investigation for unearthing 2003 documents purporting to give him a stake in Zuckerberg’s start-up.

Paul Ceglia from Wellsville in western New York state filed suit on June 30, claiming he owns most of Facebook under an old 2003 “work for hire” contract back when founder Mark Zuckerberg was a college freshman. He also claims to have a year’s worth of email correspondence with Zuckerberg to support his case.
