The facebook has been facing a lot of controversial situations over the past one year. However, in a new issue, one New York citizen has filed a lawsuit claiming of owning around 84 percent of this particular social networking company.


A person named Paul D Ceglia of Wellsville located in New York claims in a lawsuit that he has got into a contract with Mark Zuckereberg, the facebook originator, in the year2003. According to the lawsuit, the agreement was done between these two people and Cegila was entitled to pay around $1000 fees and even a 50 percent of share in the finished product. The design later developed into a Website that would eventually become a social networking site and was launched as the Facebook.com. According to the lawsuit, this was basically filed in the Supreme Court of New York’s Allegany County.
The lawsuit even claims that on February 4, 2004, Zuckereberg had agreed to pay Cegila an additional 1 percent share each day until and unless the Website is finished, and he even offered Cegila an 84 percent share in the company. However, facebook has completely dismissed the lawsuit as vivacious.
According to the facebook spokesperson named Barry Schnitt said in one of his statements that they believe that this particular lawsuit is entirely perky and they will surely fight against it energetically.
In the year 2009, the entire New York Attorney General Andre M. Cuomo received a warning order against the Allegany Pellets, a company situated in the western New York named Pallet company that is been owned by Ceglia along with his wife Lasia. Cuomo has basically accused the corporation of swindling consumers by charging around $200,000 in orders but still not delivering any of the products or even not issuing any of the refunds. This particular case is ongoing.
