Facebook Says Ceglia Computers Show ‘Smoking Gun’ of Fraud

Facebook Inc. said its inspection of computers turned over by Paul Ceglia, the western New York man who claims he’s entitled to half of Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg’s holdings in the social-networking company, shows “smoking gun” evidence of fraud.

Ceglia sued Facebook and Zuckerberg last year, claiming that a two-page contract Zuckerberg signed in 2003 gave Ceglia half of the company when the service was started the following year. Palo Alto, California-based Facebook has grown to become the world’s biggest social-networking site.
