Winklevii Promise To Appeal To Supreme Court

from the and-the-court-will-laugh dept

Well, that didn't take long at all. We noted that the tone deaf Winklevoss twins would probably appeal their latest legal "loss," which "only" entitles them to the $160 million or so from their original settlement with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg. Even while I said I expected them to appeal since they'd already gone this far, there was still a little voice in the back of my head saying they couldn't possibly think that the Supreme Court could see a Constitutional issue to consider in their case. And yet... hours later, the Winklevii lawyer has announced plans to appeal to the Supreme Court. And I will announce plans to not laugh out loud when the Supreme Court turns them down.

    I recently watched the movie "The Social Network" In this movie, the Winklevoss twins were portrayed as petty cry babies who held a vendetta against Zuckerberg for beating them at their own game. At the time, I was thinking that no person could be that petty in real life.

    Thanks for living up to your caricatures, Winklevii.
