Is Lawsuit Against Facebook Keeping Buyer Away?

TechCrunch has a story about a three-year old lawsuit against Facebook. It may be what is keeping Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT), or Yahoo! from making the big offer the press keeps talking about.

Three people who worked with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg have accused him of stealing the source code from another project to start the company.

If the suit has potential validity, it would certainly make the large web portals think twice before making an offer.
