In a civil lawsuit filed in the Supreme Court of New York's Allegany County last month, Paul Ceglia said he signed a contract with Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2003 to develop and design a website.

Cuomo's suit alleged that Allegany Pellets took $200,000 from customers and failed to deliver any products or refunds.
