ROMANO IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FORMARK ELLIOT ZUCKERBERG EXPEDITED DISCOVERYand FACEBOOK, INC., Defendants.----------------------------I, Frank J. Romano, declare and state as follows:1. I respectfully submit this Declaration in support of Defendants’ Motion for Ex-pedited Discovery.2. I am Professor Emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Schoolof Print Media. My career in the printing industry has spanned over 50 years. Ihave worked with every known printing process and, in many cases, authored thefirst articles and books on the subject.A true and correct copy of my curriculum vitae is attached hereto as Exhibit A.3. My 49 books cover every aspect of document origination, reproduction, and dis-tribution. I am best known for my 10,000-term “Encyclopedia of Graphic Commu-nications,” which has been called the standard reference in the field.4. I have presented seminars, workshops, and lectures to virtually every associa-tion, club, and organization in the industry at one time or another. Over the courseof an average year, I address several hundred attendees, mostly covering advanceddigital printing technology.5. RIT is well-known for its workshops on “Printing Process Identification andImage Analysis for Forensic Document Examiners” which explores the full rangeof image, ink, and substrate variables that are key to determining the authenticityof currency, stamps, passports, and other legal documents.
  16. 16. 6. I have been involved and testified as an expert in numerous cases. Among thosecases involving document authentication, the most notable have been the 1990’scase involving “Larry Potter” and a 2007 case involving lottery tickets (Oberthurvs Scientific Games). I have also been on the History Detectives show where I au-thenticated intaglio printing plates for Duke Ellington’s “Take the A Train.”7. Documents degrade in quality with each re-copying or re-printing, and espe-cially so as different printing technologies are used.8. Originally, copiers were “light lens” copying machines. The original was placedon a glass platen and a moving light source illuminated the original. The image ofthe original was reflected through an optical lens to activate a photoconductive sur-face which converted light energy (photons) into electrons forming an electroniccharge image to which toner could be attracted.9. Around 1999, this type of copier technology was replaced by “multi-function”machines that used a scanner instead of light and lens. A scanner/digital printeruses digital technology that reduces all images to patterns of dots.10. Moreover, scanned copies may be printed on either toner-based or inkjet-basedprinters.11. These differences in printing technology will affect the degree of degradationthat occurs with each re-copying or re-printing and may also indicate other docu-ment anomalies.12. However, any degradation is typically uniform within a document and onewould not expect to see a difference in page format, typeface, or typeface densityfrom page to page. In fact, it would be extremely unusual to see such differencesfrom page to page.13. I have reviewed a purported “work for hire” contract, a copy of which is at-tached hereto as Exhibit B. I have not reviewed the original ink-written document.14. I observed numerous significant inconsistencies between Pages 1 and 2 of Ex-hibit B. For example:a. Formatting: The indents for each section that appear on Page 1 are formatteddifferently than the indents for each section on Page 2. Specifically, the indents onPage 1 are wider than the indents on Page 2 and uncommonly so. Moreover, sub-

CEGLIA, : : Civil Action No. 1:10-cv-00569-RJA Plaintiff, : v. : DECLARATION OF DONALD R. : HENNE IN SUPPORT OFMARK ELLIOT ZUCKERBERG and : DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FORFACEBOOK, INC., : EXPEDITED DISCOVERY : Defendants. :------------------------------------ x I, DONALD R. HENNE, declare and state as follows: 1. I respectfully submit this declaration in support of Defendants’ Motion forExpedited Discovery. 2. I am currently employed by Kroll Associates, Inc. (“Kroll”) as an AssociateManaging Director. Kroll offers premier business intelligence and investigation services. I havebeen employed by Kroll since July 2005. Prior to being employed by Kroll, I was a LieutenantCommander and officer in the New York City Police Department for 20 years. 3. In September 2010, Kroll was engaged to conduct a background investigation ofthe plaintiff in this litigation, Paul D. Ceglia (“Ceglia”). The objective of the investigation wasto identify material legal proceedings, significant business or personal controversies, and otherissues that might reflect on Ceglia’s reputation, character and credibility. I have been a memberof the team conducting the investigation since its inception and have personal knowledge of thematters stated in this Declaration. 4. As is standard practice, we first reviewed a variety of public records in relevantjurisdictions. Kroll conducted on-site research of public-record sources in various locations. In 
  41. 41.  addition, Kroll conducted nationwide online searches of public records using commercialdatabases.Consumer Fraud Related to Allegany Pellets, LLC 5. I have reviewed public records, which were identified by another Krollinvestigator, pertaining to the New York State Attorney General’s lawsuit against Ceglia, hiswife Iasia, and their business Allegany Pellets, LLC. True and correct copies of those recordsare attached hereto as Exhibit A. 6. According to the records attached as Exhibit A, on December 29, 2009, theAttorney General obtained a temporary restraining order against the Ceglias and AlleganyPellets, LLC, for defrauding dozens of consumers out of approximately $200,000. The partiesresolved this matter pursuant to a Consent Order and Judgment, dated October 22, 2010,pursuant to which the Ceglias and Allegany Pellets, LLC, agreed to make restitution of$106,421.14 and to pay costs, fees, and penalties of $25,000.00. 7. In a press release announcing that his office had obtained a temporary restrainingorder, then-Attorney General Andrew Cuomo stated that “[t]his company and its ownersrepeatedly lied to consumers and continued to solicit new orders despite an inability to deliverwood pellets that were bought and paid for months before the winter heating season began.” Atrue and correct copy of this press release is attached hereto as Exhibit B. 8. Given this information, at my direction, another Kroll investigator determined thatCeglia had been arrested and charged criminally in connection with this matter. Ceglia wasarrested on October 30, 2009, and subsequently charged by the Allegany County DistrictAttorney’s Office with one count of first-degree scheme to defraud and 12 counts of fourth- 
  42. 42.  degree grand larceny. Ceglia received an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal on onecount of grand larceny, which was reduced to petit larceny, a Class A misdemeanor.Felony Drug Conviction in Texas 9. I have also reviewed public records, which were identified by another Krollinvestigator, pertaining to Ceglia’s arrest and conviction in Panola County, Texas. True andcorrect certified copies of those records are attached hereto as Exhibit C. 10. According to the records attached as Exhibit C, Ceglia was arrested on March 26,1997, and subsequently pled guilty to aggravated possession of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony. Ceglia was in possession of more than 400 grams of psilocybin, includingdilutents. Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic compound found in certain mushrooms. Ceglia wassentenced to ten years of probation and paid $15,000 of a $25,000 fine, $10,000 of which wassuspended.Misdemeanor Trespass Conviction in Florida 11. I have reviewed public records, which were identified by another Krollinvestigator, pertaining to Ceglia’s arrest and conviction in Polk County, Florida. True andcorrect certified, partially redacted copies of those records are attached hereto as Exhibit D. 12. According to the records attached as Exhibit D, Ceglia was arrested on May 1,2005, and subsequently pled nolo contendere to Trespassing on Cultivated Land, a first-degreemisdemeanor. Ceglia was stopped in a private orange grove by a deputy sheriff who had beenadvised of a trespassing problem in the area. Ceglia misinformed the officer that he had aneasement along the grove and was showing the property to two potential buyers from Miami.The deputy sheriff’s field investigation confirmed that Ceglia did not have any easement, and theproperty owner elected to press charges. Ceglia was ordered to pay a fine. 
  43. 43.  Ceglia’s Land Sales 13. As a result of this finding, Kroll investigators conducted a detailed search ofproperty records connected to Ceglia. I and other Kroll investigators learned that between 2005and 2008, Ceglia sold a significant number of properties in New York and Florida. 14. Kroll investigators then identified and interviewed several of the individuals whocontracted to purchase land from Ceglia. Many interviewees provided documentation regardingtheir interactions with Ceglia, including sales agreements, property deeds, eBay advertisements,and e-mail with Ceglia and his associates. 15. Through my review of this information, I learned that Ceglia’s sale of land inNew York and Florida appears to have been a wide-ranging land scam involvingmisrepresentation, “shill bidding” on eBay, falsification of government documents, and, in somecases, outright theft. Misrepresentation 16. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to avictim who lives in Margate, Florida (“Victim-1”), that Victim-1 provided the followinginformation: a. In March and April 2005, Victim-1 purchased two tracts of land located inPolk County, Florida from Ceglia via an internet auction on eBay. The first property—whichwas purchased in March 2005 with a winning bid of $10,300—was listed as “zoned asresidential” and “cleared and ready to build.” The second property—which was purchased inApril 2005 with a winning bid of $17,600—was advertised as “zoned as residential,” “close toDisney,” and “roads not developed as of yet.” Ceglia also informed Victim-1 that he and hisattorneys were obtaining an easement and road access for the properties. True and correct copies 
  44. 44.  of these eBay advertisements are attached hereto as Exhibit E, which are partially redacted toprotect the privacy of Victim-1. b. In or around 2006, Victim-1 received the tax bills for these properties andrealized he had been defrauded. In late 2006, Victim-1 contacted Polk County officials andlearned that each parcel was, in fact, unbuildable land not zoned for residential use. AlthoughCeglia had told Victim-1 that his attorneys were working on obtaining an easement and roadaccess for the Florida properties, Polk County officials informed Victim-1 that the land wasessentially worthless, and the County was not considering providing an easement or road accessin the future. 17. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to avictim who lives in Orlando, Florida (“Victim-2”), that Victim-2 provided the followinginformation: a. In December 2005, Victim-2 purchased a tract of land located in PolkCounty, Florida, advertised as “buildable” through an internet auction on eBay. The winning bidfor the tract was $17,100. Victim-2 paid Ceglia the purchase price in full. True and correctcopies of these eBay advertisements are attached hereto as Exhibit F, which are partiallyredacted to protect the privacy of Victim-2. b. After receiving the tax bill for the property, Victim-2 was alerted that thevalue of the land was significantly less than the purchase price. As a result, Victim-2 contactedPolk County officials and learned that the property was not zoned for residential use andtherefore was not buildable. 
  45. 45.   c. After learning of the property’s zoning restrictions, Victim-2 attempted todispute the sale with Ceglia; however, Ceglia once again represented that the property wasbuildable, so long as Victim-2 obtained a “right of way.” d. Victim-2 received subsequent documentation from County officialsreconfirming that this property could not be used for residential purposes. Apparent “Shill Bidding” on eBay 18. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to avictim who lives in Naples, Florida (“Victim-3”), that Victim-3 provided the followinginformation: a. Victim-3 became aware of a tract of land located in Polk County, Floridawhen she attempted to place a bid for it on eBay, but was not the high bidder in the auction. Theproperty was listed on eBay as “buildable”; the description even stated that “one could drive anRV onto it.” In addition, the property was described as having an entranceway, and the listingincluded a picture of the purported property and its supposed entranceway. b. In or around May 2006, Victim-3 purchased the property from Ceglia for$6,000 through a private sale. Victim-3 first attempted—and failed—to win the property oneBay. Ceglia contacted Victim-3 to inform her that the high bidder backed out, and offered herthe opportunity to purchase the property in the amount of Victim-3’s last bid of $6,000, whichshe accepted. Indeed, the winning bid was approximately $2,000 higher than Victim-3’s finalbid of $6,000. c. After closing, Victim-3 learned from Polk County representatives that theproperty was inaccessible because it had no public easement. Nor was the property buildable. 
  46. 46.   19. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to avictim who lives in Spring Hill, Florida (“Victim-4”), that Victim-4 provided the followinginformation: a. Victim-4 became aware of a tract of land located in Polk County, Floridawhen he attempted to place a bid for it on eBay, but was not the high bidder in the auction.Victim-4 was contacted by Ceglia after the auction closed. Ceglia informed Victim-4 that thewinning bidder had decided to back out of the transaction and offered Victim-4 the opportunityto purchase the property according to his last bid price. b. Victim-4, who was still interested in the property, decided to acceptCeglia’s offer and purchased the land for his final bidding price of $12,500, in or around August2006. c. Prior to the sale’s closing, Victim-4 specifically asked Ceglia whether thetract of land was buildable, to which Ceglia responded that if it was not, he would fully refundthe purchase price. Ceglia also advertised the property as measuring one full acre. d. Subsequent to the sale, Victim-4 learned from Polk County officials thathe was not permitted to build on the land. He also was informed that the tract of land onlymeasures 0.75 acres, contrary to Ceglia’s representation. Falsification of Government Documents 20. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to avictim who lives in Miami, Florida (“Victim-5”), that Victim-5 provided the followinginformation: a. In December 2005, Victim-5 purchased a parcel of land located in PolkCounty, Florida from Ceglia via an internet auction on eBay. Ceglia advertised the land by 
  47. 47.  stating that an RV could be driven on it, a house could be built on it, electric could be installedeither by overhead or underground wiring, and a water well could also be installed on the land. b. Victim-5 purchased the land with a winning auction bid of $47,000, and inDecember 2005 made a $5,000 down payment via PayPal, with the remaining balance paid atclosing. c. After the sale, Victim-5 met with Ceglia for dinner, where Cegliainformed him that the property he purchased would increase in value once additional roads werebuilt and more houses were constructed in the area. Ceglia also stated that he would be movingto the area himself. d. In December 2006, Ceglia sent Victim-5 a Polk County documentrepresenting that a building permit for the land could be obtained. The County document,however, did not identify the tract at issue. A true and correct copy of the purported Countydocument obtained from Victim-5 is attached hereto as Exhibit G. e. Approximately one year later, Victim-5 contacted Polk Countyrepresentatives, and learned that the property sold to him by Ceglia was virtually uninhabitabledue to zoning restrictions. 21. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to avictim who lives in Miami, Florida (“Victim-6”), that Victim-6 provided the followinginformation: a. In February 2005, Victim-6 purchased property from Ceglia via an onlineinternet auction on eBay, with a winning bid of $7,000. According to Victim-6, the property—located in Polk County, Florida—was advertised by Ceglia as “buildable.” 
  48. 48.   b. Victim-6 met personally with Ceglia to transact the deal. At the time ofthe closing in February 2005, Ceglia provided Victim-6 a Polk County document representingthat a building permit for a home could be obtained. The County document, however, did notidentify the tract at issue. This document was identical to the document that Ceglia provided toVictim-5. A true and correct copy of the purported County document obtained from Victim-6 isattached hereto as Exhibit H. c. Subsequent to the sale and closing, Polk County officials informedVictim-6 that his property was not buildable. 22. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke to theDirector of the Polk County Land Development Division in Bartow, Florida (“Director”), whoprovided the following information after inspecting a copy of the Polk County document thatCeglia provided to Victim-5 and Victim-6: a. The Director stated that the form is used for land verification purposes,and can be obtained by calling the County Land Development Division. In fact, the Directorstated that people “call by the hundreds” to request this form, particularly to confirm the zoningrequirements for a specific parcel of land prior to buying the property. b. In order to obtain the County document that Ceglia provided to Victim-5and Victim-6, an individual would need to provide the parcel ID number along with the section,township and range relating to the parcel. c. Upon inspection of the document, the Director confirmed that the parcelID number was not reflected on the form. The Director stated that under no circumstances couldthe form be issued without the parcel ID number, as the County official would not be able tolook up the requested parcel information without it. 
  49. 49.   d. The Director stated that without the parcel ID number, these designationscould apply to any parcel of land among hundreds of parcels in the area. Moreover, the Directorstated that the missing parcel number had to have been “whited out.” e. Finally, the Director noted that the line at the bottom of Exhibits G and H,which reads “A building permit for a home can be obtained” with no period, was likely doctored:typically, that sentence reads “A building permit for a home can be obtained if,” followed by alist of the requirements that would have to be met in order for a building permit to be obtained. Outright Theft 23. I learned from another Kroll investigator that Victim-1 also provided thefollowing information about his purchase of land located in Allegany County, New York: a. In October 2005, Ceglia purported to sell Victim-1 two tracts of land inAllegany County, New York for $16,300 each. After making a $5,000 down payment for eachtract, Victim-1 agreed to pay the remaining balance on each tract through monthly payments thatwere personally financed by Ceglia. Victim-1 made routine monthly mortgage payments toCeglia through August 2006. b. At the time of the sale, Ceglia provided Victim-1 with an Agreement forDeed for one of the lots. The Agreement, dated October 5, 2005, identified Victim-1 as thebuyer and Ceglia as the seller. Victim-1 also submitted to Ceglia signed documentation relatingto the second parcel, but Ceglia never returned it. c. Victim-1 made monthly mortgage payments totaling $1,754.46 to Cegliaon the two New York properties through August 2006. d. Sometime in late 2006 or early 2007, Victim-1 still had not received a taxbill for either Allegany County parcel. He contacted Allegany County officials, who informed 
  50. 50.  him that he was not listed as the owner of either parcel. Indeed, Victim-1 was not listed as theowner of any land in the State of New York e. In fact, on March 10, 2006, five months after Ceglia purported to sell thesetracts to Victim-1, Ceglia split one of the tracts purportedly already sold—the one in whichVictim-1 believed he held a valid Agreement for Deed—in two. As a result, that tract becametwo separate parcels. Furthermore, Ceglia sold one of these two newly-created subdividedparcels to another purchaser for approximately $30,000. Ceglia remains the documented ownerof the second subdivided parcel. 24. In October 2010, I was informed by another Kroll investigator who spoke tovictims who live in Hunt, New York (“Victims-7 and 8”), that Victims-7 and 8 provided thefollowing information: a. In January 2007, Victims-7 and 8 identified land in Livingston County,New York, offered for sale by Ceglia. The land was advertised publicly as “For Sale.” b. Victims-7 and 8 purchased the land for $21,251.00, financing the purchaseprice with Ceglia. The parties entered into a written Agreement for Deed for the property. c. Victims-7 and 8 paid monthly installments of $257.82 to Ceglia for over ayear, totaling approximately $4,125.00. d. In late 2007, Victims-7 and 8 were advised by the Livingston CountryTreasurer that taxes had not been paid on the parcel, which led Victims-7 and 8 to learn thatCeglia had never been listed with the County as the owner. e. Victim-7 reported the fraud to the Allegany County District Attorney’sOffice and the Allegany County Sheriff’s Office, but criminal charges were not brought. Victim-

  53. 53. 7/30/2010 ATTORNEY GENERAL CUOMO OBTAIN… ATTORNEY GENERAL CUOMO OBTAINS TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST WNY WOOD PELLET COMPANY SUED FOR DEFRAUDING CONSUMERS Company lied to customers and solicited new orders when unable to deliver products as promised BUFFALO, N.Y. (December 29, 2009) - Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo today announced his office has obtained a temporary restraining order against a Western New York wood-pellet fuel company he sued for taking more than $200,000 from consumers and then failing to deliver any products or refunds. Based on Cuomo’s lawsuit, Erie County Supreme Court Justice Sheila A. DiTullio today signed a temporary restraining order banning Allegany Pellets, LLC and its owners, Paul and Iasia Ceglia of Wellsville, from accepting advance payments from consumers, destroying any business records or property, and transferring any of their assets. Allegany Pellets and the Ceglias encouraged consumers to pre-order pellets in Spring 2009. The company took in approximately $200,000 in advance payments from dozens of consumers and promised to deliver 1,900 tons of wood pellets in the subsequent months so that homeowners would be prepared for the 2009- 2010 winter season. However, Allegany failed to deliver any of the pellets or issue refunds. “This company and its owners repeatedly lied to consumers and continued to solicit new orders despite an inability to deliver wood pellets that were bought and paid for months before the winter heating season began,” said Attorney General Cuomo. “My office is seeking restitution, penalties, and additional financial safeguards to ensure this company cannot scam anyone in the future.” The Attorney General’s investigation revealed that in September, Allegany Pellets sent a letter to customers who pre-paid for pellets informing them that it would not deliver the products until the end of the year, well into the heating season. The letter also stated that Allegany had incurred significant layoffs and asked consumers to “dig deep” while the company attempted to make good on their orders. In reality, Paul and Iasia Ceglia were always the only employees of the company, and while consumers were asked to “dig deep,” the Ceglias were unwilling to do the same. An investigation uncovered that the Ceglias have extensive real estate holdings including 75 acres of oceanfront property in Nova Scotia; 30 acres and 70 rental properties in Wellsville; and their own residence on 2 acres in Wellsville. Rather than use some of the extensive properties as collateral to provide refunds to consumers, the Ceglias only offered the vague promise that, at some future date, they would deliver the pellets for which the customers had already paid. Additionally, even after the letter detailing the company’s dire situation was sent out, Allegany Pellets continued to solicit pre-order sales and accept payments from consumers. Cuomo’s lawsuit seeks restitution for the impacted consumers, as well as penalties and costs to the state. Additionally, the suit seeks to bar the Ceglias and Allegany from operating in New York state unless they post a $200,000 performance bond. The case is being handled by Assistant Attorney General James Morrissey under the supervision of Assistant Attorney General-In-Charge of the Buffalo Regional Office Russell Ippolito and Deputy Attorney General for Regional Affairs J. David Sampson. © 2008 NEW YORK STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL. All rights reserved. Privacy Policy |…/dec29a_09.html 1/1

  61. 61. UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURTWESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK------------------------------- --- x :PAUL D. CEGLIA, : Civil Action No. 1:10-cv-00569- : Plaintiff, RJA : v. : DECLARATION OF GERALD : R. McMENAMIN IN SUPPORTMARK ELLIOT ZUCKERBERG and : OF DEFENDANTS’ MOTIONFACEBOOK, INC., : FOR EXPEDITED DISCOVERY : Defendants. :-------------------------- -------- x I, Gerald R. McMenamin, declare as follows: 1. I respectfully submit this declaration in support of Defendants Motion forExpedited Discovery: 2. I am Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and former Chair of the Department ofLinguistics at California State University, Fresno. My academic and professional areasof specialization are the analysis of variation and style in spoken and written language.Attached to this Declaration as Exhibit A is my Curriculum Vitae. On past occasions,the last five years of which are set forth in my Curriculum Vitae, I have qualified as anexpert witness in forensic linguistics and have testified in courts in the State of Californiaand in other States and countries, as well as in Federal Courts, to render conclusionsand opinions on stylistics and questioned authorship. 3. I was retained in this matter by GIBSON DUNN and was asked to determine,to the extent possible, the authorship of a series of QUESTIONED writings excerptedinto an Amended Complaint in this matter, by performing a stylistic analysis of thoseQUESTIONED writings vis-à-vis KNOWN reference writings of Mr. Mark Zuckerberg.
  62. 62. KNOWN writings used for comparison were various email writings of Mr. Zuckerbergexchanged with the Plaintiff and related parties during the time period as specified in theAmended Complaint, which totaled 35 emails. My task was to analyze the internalstructure of all writings, with the objective of either excluding or identifying Mr.Zuckerberg as the writer of the QUESTIONED excerpts. 4. Opinion: It is probable that Mr. Zuckerberg is not the author of theQUESTIONED writings. 5. Forensic Stylistic Analysis: This is a case in which I have used stylisticanalysis, or “stylistics", to reach a conclusion related to the authorship of questionedwritings. Stylistics is the scientific study of patterns of variation in written language. Theobject of study is the language of a single individual, resulting in a description of his/herrespective identifying linguistic characteristics. Literary stylistics studies works ofliterature whose authorship is in doubt. Stylistics is forensic when its purpose is toresolve a disputed question related to written language, such as that of the authorshipquestion of this case. In cases of disputed authorship, the linguist analyzes anddescribes the style of documents known to be written by one or more given suspectauthors and compares and contrasts their internal linguistic patterns to those of thequestioned writing. The result of this analysis may be exclusion or inclusion of writingswithin a common canon of writings; or exclusion or identification of a suspect author; orinconclusive with respect to data that support neither of the latter outcomes. 6. This approach to author identification is based on two principles generallyaccepted, and well-documented in peer-reviewed contexts: author-specific linguisticpatterns are present in unique combination in the style of every writer, and these 2
  63. 63. underlying patterns can be empirically described and often measured by carefullinguistic analysis, making author identification possible. 7. A language is at one and the same time owned by its whole group ofspeakers but uniquely used by individuals from that group. Why one writer chooseslinguistic form A and another chooses form B has two possible causes: differences inwhat they individually know of the language, and differences in how each one uses thecore of linguistic knowledge they have in common as speakers and writers of English.Individual differences in writing style are also very often due to an individuals choice ofavailable alternatives within a large, shared common-pool of linguistic forms. At anygiven moment, a writer picks and chooses just those elements of language that willbest communicate what he/she wants to say. The writers "choice" of availablealternate forms is often determined by external conditions and then becomes theunconscious result of habitually using one form instead of another. Individuality inwriting style results from a given writers own unique set of habitual linguistic choices.Identification and analysis of a writer’s choices, i.e., of his or her style markers,constitute stylistic analysis, which is well established as a generally accepted and peer-reviewed method of author identification in both literary and forensic contexts. 8. Method: QUESTIONED and KNOWN writings analyzed are the following: Questioned Excerpts 11 Excerpts from Amended Complaint, attributed to Mr. Zuckerberg Known-Zuckerberg Writings 35 Emails of Mr. Zuckerberg, as described above 9. I analyzed the language of the QUESTIONED writings and that of theKNOWN-Zuckerberg writings to determine if the QUESTIONED writings are or are not 3
  64. 64. consistent with Mr. Zuckerberg’s KNOWN writings. 10. In order to accomplish this assignment, I performed the following tasks: a. I examined the QUESTIONED writings and the KNOWN-Zuckerberg writings. b. I identified specific stylistic features of linguistic variation found in therespective QUESTIONED and KNOWN-Zuckerberg writings. 11. Findings: Stylistic features present in the QUESTIONED excerpts butabsent in the KNOWN-Zuckerberg writings, as well as those present in both sets ofwriting include the following: STYLE-MARKERS IN QUESTIONED AND KNOWN-ZUCKERBERG WRITINGS 1. Punctuation: APOSTROPHES 2. Punctuation: SUSPENSION POINTS 3. Spelling: BACKEND 4. Spelling: INTERNET 5. Spelling: CANNOT 6. Syntax: RUN-ON SENTENCES 7. Syntax: SINGLE-WORD SENTENCE OPENERS 8. Syntax: SENTENCE-INITIAL "SORRY" [similarity] 9. Syntax: DISTANT OR AMBIGUOUS PRONOUN-REFERENT 10. Syntax: NO COMMA AFTER IF-CLAUSE 11. Discourse: MESSAGE-FINAL "THANKS!" [similarity] 12. Discussion: Details of all 11 style markers and their occurrences arepresented in Exhibit B. There are two similarities (Nos. 8 and 11) and nine differencesbetween the QUESTIONED writings and KNOWN-Zuckerberg writings, the differencesdemonstrating a compelling aggregate-array of distinct markers in the respective sets ofwritings. 13. It is important to note that no single marker of these nine differing features is 4

Syntax: DISTANT OR AMBIGUOUS PRONOUN-REFERENT A pronoun2 will refer back to a noun1 previously used, as in, I painted the door1 because it2 needed attention. If there is more than one preceding noun, the pronoun will refer back to one of those, one which cannot be too far back, as in, I painted the door and my nails, and they needed attention. However, sentences like the latter or sentences with a too-distant noun- referent can result in awkward ambiguity: I painted the door and the table, which really needed attention. This type of problematic ambiguous or too-distant reference occurs in the QUESTIONED writings but not in the KNOWN-Zuckerberg writings.
