After an important decision on Monday, the Winklevoss twin’s bid in claiming that Facebook was stolen from them by young billionaire Mark Zuckerberg may have come to an end.
“The Winklevosses are not the first parties bested by a competitor who then seek to gain through litigation what they were unable to achieve in the marketplace,” wrote the judges of the court.
“At some point, litigation must come to an end. That point has now been reached.”
The Winklevoss lawsuit has been in courts for the past 8 years. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss reached a $65 million settlement with Zuckerberg in 2008.
This current case whose decision has just been handed down comes after the two brothers asked the court to review that settlement.
However, according to the court, the two cannot go back on the previous settlement they agreed to.
