A US appeals court on Tuesday ruled against Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, twin brothers who claim Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea to create Facebook, by refusing to review a decision to uphold a $65 million settlement agreement.
REUTERS - The twin brothers who accused Facebook Inc and founder Mark Zuckerberg of stealing their idea for the social networking website lost their bid to have a U.S. court void a multi-million dollar settlement of their claims.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss failed to convince the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco to reconsider its April 11 ruling upholding the $65 million cash-and-stock settlement they reached with Facebook in 2008.
