The Winklevoss Twins

LOSE AGAIN

Must Pay Lawyers $13 MIL!

10/12/2011 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Winklevoss Twins
The legal losing streak continues for Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss ... who've been ordered to pay their former lawyers $13 MILLION in fees after losing yet another appeal in their neverending Facebook saga.

The Winklevii have been at war with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan -- the firm that represented them in the case portrayed in "The Social Network." The boys claim the firm committed malpractice by leaking information about their $65 million settlement with Mark Zuckerberg ... and they shouldn't have to pay them a single cent.

But an arbitration panel ruled against the twins ... so they took the case all the way up to a New York appeals court ... which just dished out some more bad news for the Winks ... they lost

Now, the Winklevii have no choice but to pay the fee ... or else the firm can take steps towards seizing their assets.

These 2 pole smokers should take the millions and move on. If they are that smart start a new company. maybe a gay match maker web site or ****book just for baloney smugglers.

These two just don't know when to enough is enough. I will pray for their soul, which seems consumed by bitterness and greed.

How come they never talk about the other guy the twins were in business with. What did he get out of the deal?

All those Facebook clowns including Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and Mark Zuckerburg look like snakes that would steal an old lady's last nickel.

I don't give a crap about these two brothers and their beef with Facebook. But I can tell you one thing from personal experience. Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan is one of the most crooked, unethical law firm you can find. And the fact that these dudes chose them in the first place tells me they had a weak case and were praying Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan will do that thing and pull a rabbit out of the hat. Sounds like these guys and Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan deserve each other.

Quit crying and go away! You made out great. What would you do if you had a few more millions that you can't do now?

Not only will they have to pay the fees they already owed, any legal fees charged in relation to the case during the appeal will also be their responsibility. Wow, guess greed knows no bounds, but they can afford to be greedy.

It just shows how sad and greedy people can be. They got a settlement of 60+ million but that wasn't good enough so they wanted more. They lost and now don't wanna pay their lawyer bills. Money doesn't equal class...
