Winklevoss Brothers Shot Down by Court Again

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected (PDF) a request by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss to rehear their case against Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook. The Winklevii had petitioned for an “en banc” hearing, in which eleven judges hear the case rather than the usual three.
