New York — A day after announcing that they will not appeal the Ninth Circuit’s decision refusing to undo their $65 million settlement with Facebook to the U.S. Supreme court, the Winklevoss twins, with new counsel from Berkeley-based Meade & Schrag, filed a status report Thursday in their dormant Boston federal district court trade secrets case against Facebook.
The move seeks discovery under Rule 60 of the federal rules of civil procedure to determine whether Facebook “intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence” from them, Reuters reported. They seek to examine the results of the inquiry to determine whether to ask Judge Douglas Woodlock to reopen the case.
Neel Chatterjee, one of Facebook’s outside counsel representatives, released a statement, saying “These are old and baseless allegations that have been considered and rejected previously by the courts.”
