Winklevoss Twins To Pay $13M In Legal Fees From Facebook Lawsuit

winklevoss200.jpgNEW YORK, New York (X17online) - The Winklevoss Twins have been ordered to pay their legal team $13 million for services in their $65 million Facebook lawsuit.

After unsuccessfully charging their former law firm with malpractice at a N.Y. appeals court, the brothers are being forced to pay up to the tune of $13 million – 20 percent of their total winnings from Facebook.

The original case, in which the Winklevoss Twins claimed to have conceived the idea of Facebook, was famously portrayed in the Oscar-winning film The Social Network. The brothers’ subsequent attempts to squeeze money out of the social media giant have been ineffective.
