This memo, with the subject, “Grounds for Early Dismissal of Ceglia’s Claims — Paul Ceglia’s $25 Billion Mistake,” was written by me to provide assistance to Zuckerberg in response to a recent lawsuit filed by Paul Ceglia where he claims to have emails from 2004 which show Mark Zuckerberg allotted him 50% of Facebook equity.

Until it happens to you or a colleague, most people pay little attention to the risks of conducting important business or personal transactions using simple email only to have its content or delivery challenged after-the-fact.
