Paul Ceglia, a New York man who claims he’s entitled to half of Mark Zuckerberg’s multibillion-dollar stake in the social network, now owes Facebook $75,776 in legal fees. Ceglia continues to claim that he signed a contract with Zuckerberg in 2003, which gives him an ownership stake in Facebook.

On Tuesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Foschio ordered Ceglia to pay the legal fees for violating a pretrial discovery order and not allowing access to his email account information. The fee is an addition to the previous $5000 fine issued by the judge.
