A U.S. appeals court ruled Monday that the Winklevoss twins can't back out of a settlement they struck with Facebook Inc. to resolve claims that founder Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for the social network. In a 2008 settlement...Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss got $20 million in cash and $45 million in Facebook stock to drop their suit claiming that Mr. Zuckerberg deceived them when he agreed to work for their company, called ConnectU, on a similar website...after they signed the settlement, the Winklevosses said they learned that Facebook's board had adopted an internal valuation of just $3.7 billion. Had this lower valuation been used, the Winklevoss twins would have received more Facebook shares as part of their settlement. [WSJ]
