In a Wednesday order, federal Judge James Ware enforced a settlement between Facebook and onetime rival ConnectU over claims that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stole ideas and success from ConnectU. The settlement, which will give ConnectU undisclosed amounts of stock and cash, was disputed by ConnectU, which claimed it was a fraud. In a statement issued Thursday, Facebook claimed that the dispute over the settlement wasn't about fraud; it was about ConnectU and its lawyers at Quinn Emanuel.
