Peter Angelos Is Suing Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook

You don’t get to shatz on 1 million Oriole fans without making a few enemies!

What do Peter Angelos and the Winklevoss twins have in common?  They both have lawsuits against Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.

Angelos, the Orioles owner and infamous lawyer,  and fellow Baltimore lawyer William Murphy have filed a class action lawsuit in a California federal court against Facebook according to Gary Haber of the Baltimore Business Journal.

The two are “alleging that the social media giant unlawfully tracked the Internet activities of the website’s users,” according to Haber.

Maybe Angelos will be distracted enough by this lawsuit that the Orioles might get a little better until its settled.

This is sort of like the Iran-Iraq War -- can they please both lose?

Angelos is 6'5", 220 lbs and there are two of him?

I bet he ticked the "I agree to the terms and conditions" box without actually reading them, didn't he?

As if anyone is still following the Orioles.

He probably has a better case here than that crap about cell phones causing brain cancer.

Being an attorney for Facebook sounds like pretty steady work.

So . . Facebook is made of asbestos? Who knew?

You would think he would have learned after clicking a similar box in an email from Apple and ending up as part of the human "cent-iPad".

That's just how Angelos shows aggression. Just fire into the air and he'll run off.
