Paul Ceglia, who claims he’s entitled to half-ownership of Facebook, has added five attorneys to his legal team. ┬áHis lead attorney says that should be seen as a sign of the case’s strength. ┬áCeglia is suing Facebook and founder Mark Zuckerberg in federal court in Buffalo, saying a contract he signed in 2003 with Zuckerberg, then a Harvard University freshman, entitles him to half of the multibillion-dollar social networking site.

Facebook lawyers say the contract is doctored and has nothing to do with the company.
