BUFFALO, NY - A western New York man is suing Facebook, claiming he is owed 84 percent of the company.
Paul Ceglia, of Allegany, filed a lawsuit in State Supreme court saying he has a signed contract with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2003 to design and develop thefacebook.com.
Ceglia claims he is owed a $1,000 fee and ownership of 50 percent of Facebook, plus 1 percent for each day beyond the original terms until the site was finished.
Facebook has denied the charges made by Ceglia and is attempting to move the case to a federal court.
Ceglia was in the news last year when hew was sued last year by New York Attorney Gen. Andrew Cuomo failing to deliver on orders of wood pellets.
This lawsuit follows other ownership claims made by Zuckerberg's Harvard University classmates. That case will be the subject of a movie due for release this fall.
