Winklevoss Twins Abandon Appeal
The Winklevosses had been planning to appeal an April 11 ruling by a federal appeals court in San Francisco upholding the settlement, which that court called "quite favorable." But in a filing on Wednesday with that court, the Winklevosses said that after "careful consideration," they decided not to seek Supreme Court review," according to Reuters, adding, "The filing did not give a reason for the decision."
For its part, Facebook said in a statement: "We've considered this case closed for a long time, and we're pleased to see the other party now agrees." Meanwhile, this week's filing clears the way for Facebook to seek the dismissal of a related lawsuit filed in Boston federal court, Reuters adds.
