The Winklevii Return to What They Know Best

Just when the world thought the Winklevii had given up their Facebook fight, the twins are back with another lawsuit.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss filed a new lawsuit against Facebook, just a day after deciding not to appeal a U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding their $65 million settlement with Facebook, to see if Mark Zuckerberg and his company "intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence" during settlement proceedings.

The twins, along with their business partner Divya Narendra, claim that Zuckerberg stole their idea to build a social network for college students when they were students together at Harvard.

The original suit was filed despite the twins reaching a settlement agreement with Zuckerberg and Facebook, which was famously turned into the motion picture "The Social Network." After reaching an agreement, the twins tried to change the arrangement because they said they had been misled.

The most recent claim was filed with the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts, and the twins are seeking to have documents revealed that would explain the exact relationship between Zuckerberg and them.
