Winklevosses Change Mind: Back In Court

Psych! Just a day after deciding not to appeal the Supreme Court ruling upholding their $65 million settlement with Facebook, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss pressed their case in federal court in Boston. In a court filing Thursday, the Winklevosses and their business partner Divya Narendra said they planned to ask the judge to investigate whether Facebook "intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence" during litigation, reports The Los Angeles Times.

"As the old saying goes, it ain't over until it's over," the paper writes. "The dramatic seven-year legal feud that inspired 'The Social Network' may have one last plot twist." But, not if Facebook has anything say about it. "These are old and baseless allegations that have been considered and rejected previously by the courts," Neel Chatterjee, an attorney for Facebook, tells LAT.

In April, the Winklevosses and Narendra said they planned to ask the Boston federal court to look into their claims that Facebook and its lawyers hid instant messages from them during litigation. That request had been suspended during the U.S. Supreme Court appeal. "That part of the case will begin now," says Tyler Meade, the Winklevosses' attorney.
