Facebook makes progress in lawsuit settlement with ConnectU

Facebook is reported to come close to settling the lawsuit filed against a popular social networking website by social-networking site ConnectU.

Divya Narendra, Cameron Winklevoss, and Tyler Winklevoss, the owners of the social networking website HarvardConnection, changed its name to ConnectU in September 2004 and filed a lawsuit against Facebook, alleging that Zuckerberg (current Facebook CEO hired as a programmer for ConnectU) had illegally used source code intended for the website they asked him to build for them.

Facebook later requested that the court case that ConnectU filed against Facebook be thrown out of court, citing that ConnectU's "broad brush allegations are unsupported by evidence." The case was thrown out by a Boston district judge.

After the court case filed by ConnectU against Facebook was dismissed 2007, ConnectU filed again against Facebook on March 11, 2008, continuing the case.

Facebook is reported now to have legal documents pertaining to the case dismissal that is due within a few weeks.
