Zuckerberg settles the Winklevoss lawsuit
In June 2008, Zuckerberg reached a settlement for the Winklevoss twins’ lawsuit stemming from the intellectual property theft accusations at Harvard in 2004. Through a combination of Facebook stock and a cash acquisition of the site ConnectU, the Winklevoss twins received a total of about $65 million, although they sued for $140 million. The Winklevoss twins would later appeal the settlement, claiming Facebook had misrepresented the value of its stock, but were denied by the judge in May 2011.
