Judge warns people to stop mucking around


Three people who claimed Mark Zuckerberg stole their social networking idea have been told to stop mucking around and accept the settlement they reached with Facebook. U.S. District Court Judge James Ware told former Harvard University classmates of Zuckerberg that they would have to take the cash and Facebook stock they agreed to accept in February.
