BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York man who says he's entitled to half ownership of Facebook has added five attorneys to his legal team.
Paul Ceglia's lead attorney, Dean Boland, said Monday that the addition of lawyers from the New York firm Milberg LLP and elsewhere is an indication of the case's strength.
Ceglia is suing Facebook and founder Mark Zuckerberg in federal court in Buffalo. Ceglia says a contract he signed with the then-Harvard University freshman in 2003 entitles him to half of the multibillion-dollar social networking site.
Lawyers for the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company say the contract is doctored and had nothing to do with Facebook. A Facebook spokesman declined to comment Monday.
The social networking site has 845 million users and recorded $3.7 billion in revenue last year.
