Sorkin's Right About The Facebook - Ceglia Mystery
Posted by David Zaring
It's hard to believe that DLA Piper, and, briefly, Kasowitz Benson, were willing to take up Paul Ceglia's claim that he owned as much as 84% of Facebook.  Especially now that he has been charged with fraud for it by the USAO for the SDNY.  Moreover, as Andrew Sorkin observed, their participation was crucial in establishing his credibility.  It is why it is a good thing that Sorkin is following up - law firms can be unaccountable for the misdeeds of their clients, and maybe that's often as it should be.  But not necessarily when the client's case basically requires the firm's imprimatur.
