BUFFALO, N.Y. — A New York man who's been staying in Ireland while his lawsuit claiming half ownership of Facebook is argued has been told to come home.

The Wellsville man claims he's got emails and a 2003 contract with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that entitle him to 50 percent ownership of the social network that's worth an estimated $50 billion.

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Facebook says the claim is baseless, built on a doctored contract and made-up emails. Zuckerberg's lawyers believe the missing drive will help disprove Ceglia's case.

Ceglia says his experts concluded the contract is authentic.
