Paul Ceglia is not giving up his federal court lawsuit claiming partial ownership of Facebook.

The Allegany County man recently filed his intention to appeal U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara’s dismissal of his 2010 suit.

In ruling against Ceglia, Arcara adopted the recommendations of U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio, who found Ceglia’s purported contract with Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to be a “recently created fabrication.”

Filed in 2010, Ceglia’s civil suit was based on his contention that he and Zuckerberg signed the contract in 2003.

Facebook acknowledges Zuckerberg signed a contract with Ceglia while a student at Harvard University, but the social media giant contends it had nothing to do with Facebook.
