Man Who Says Zuckerberg Owes Him Half of Facebook Is Missing

Ceglia’s attorney says he has no idea where he is.

Paul Ceglia

Paul Ceglia, the man who tried to claim he owned half of Facebook, is missing after he removed his ankle bracelet while being prosecuted for fraud charges, according to Bloomberg. 

The case has its roots in a 2010 lawsuit during which Paul Ceglia produced a phony contract that said he and Zuckerberg signed an agreement in 2003 to split Facebook 50/50. Zuckerberg’s attorneys proved the contract was fake, using Zuckerberg’s signature from a contract he had singed to do some freelance coding for Ceglia.

A New York federal judge declared the document was a “fabrication” and blocked Ceglia’s attempt to block prosecution in New York for fraud.

In his current fraud case, Ceglia says his prosecution violates his right to petition the government, but this claim was rejected. Ceglia is forced to wear an electronic tracking device around his leg, but has removed the ankle bracelet, and even his lawyer doesn’t know where he is. Robert Ross Fogg, Ceglia’s attorney, told Bloomberg, “I don’t know where he is. I haven’t got a clue.”

J. Peter McDonald, an FBI spokesman said emails about Ceglia’s possible disappearance weren’t responded to immediately because they were sent after regular office hours.
