BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A New York man suing for half ownership of Facebook has two weeks to either pay more than $90,000 in court-awarded fees to the social networking site's lawyers or show a judge why he can't.
The fees cover the time Facebook's lawyers spent filing paperwork to get Paul Ceglia to comply with orders to turn over materials as part of his lawsuit against the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
A U.S. magistrate in Buffalo gave Ceglia 14 days from Thursday to either pay or produce bank accounts, tax returns and other documents to show why he can't.
The order says Ceglia's failure to comply could bring even more sanctions, including the lawsuit's dismissal.
Ceglia's lawyer couldn't immediately be reached by phone or email for comment.
