Is it finally, finally over? Winklevoss twins lose bid to reopen court case against Facebook

by Knowlton Thomas

The dramatic-turned-interesting-turned-pathetic saga that the "Winklevi" have made us endure over the past couple of years looks to finally be over.

In an embarrassingly futile attempt to squeeze blood from a stone, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss attempted to have a federal appeals court void a settlement of their claims—as if $65 million wasn't enough for the twins, who contributed nothing to Facebook in the first place.

Well, the court has officially rejected their request. No reason provided, and, really, no reason needed.

They should have quit while they were ahead, but instead smeared their legacy. We'll see if they like The Social Network 2 as much as they praised the first.
