Chicago company's suit delays Facebook 'timeline' launch

Facebook will delay the public launch of its new timeline feature because of a lawsuit filed by Chicago company, Timelines.com.

The small Chicago company claims the Facebook move threatens its business. A judge refused to grant a temporary restraining order against Facebook.

But Facebook will wait until at least Tuesday when representatives from both companies will meet with another judge on whether an injunction should be issued.
