Sleep easy, Mark Zuckerberg: The Winklevoss twins, the Facebook CEO’s Harvard colleagues who have accused him for years of stealing their idea for the social-networking site, have dropped their appeal to the Supreme Court. The twins—Olympic rowing competitors who were portrayed in The Social Network along with Zuckerberg—had been contesting a 2008 settlement of $65 million, which they claimed was fraudulent because Zuckerberg had hidden information from them. The twins dropped the appeal after “careful consideration.”
