UPDATE: A Day Without Winklevoss...

Image representing Facebook as depicted in Cru...Image via CrunchBaseA day after Tyler & Cameron Winklevoss, the Olympian twin rowers (a description "TUOL" hoped never to have to write again after its post on 6/23/11) said they would not appeal the decision of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to the U.S. Supreme Court that refused to overturn their settlement agreement with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg of a lawsuit regarding the social network's origins, their attorney has filed a status report with the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts seeking permission to conduct discovery, according to reports by Reuters and Bloomberg News wire services.

The Winklevosses claim the discovery in the matter of ConnectU v. Facebook (Case No. 07-10593) is necessary to determine whether the defendant "intentionally or inadvertently suppressed evidence." The twins and Connect U founder and business partner Divya Narendra contend they were misled and deprived of important documents during settlement discussions of their lawsuit.

If Hollywood can continue to crank out X-Men movies, surely another Social Network sequel isn't too much to expect. Maybe the litigious twins are looking for their own spinoff.
