Skip to comments.Protesters Plot "Border Wall" Rally For Tomorrow...At Zuckerberg's Sprawling $100mm Hawaiian Estate
Posted on 01/27/2017 6:13:56 PM PST by blam
Back in 2014 Mark Zuckerberg paid $100 million to purchase 700 acres of beachfront property on the North Shore of Kauai. The estate includes 1,000's of feet of pristine shoreline providing the perfect "safe space" for the 30-year-old Silicon Valley Billionaire and his family.
Unfortunately, there was just one little problem with the purchase...technically the sellers didn't own the title to all of that land due to the so-called Kuleana Act, a Hawaiian law established in 1850 that for the first time gave natives the right to own the land that they lived on.
So now, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser, the Facebook billionaire sued a few hundred Hawaiians who still have legal-ownership claims to parts of his vacation estate through their ancestors. Per Yahoo Finance:
Three holding companies controlled by Zuckerberg filed eight lawsuits in local court on December 30 against families who collectively inherited 14 parcels of land through the Kuleana Act, a Hawaiian law established in 1850 that for the first time gave natives the right to own the land that they lived on.
The 14 parcels total just 8.04 of the 700 acres Zuckerberg owns, but the law gives any direct family member of a parcel's original owner the right to enter the otherwise private compound.
And while Zuckerberg's lawyer attempted to downplay the lawsuits as a common practice in Hawaii, we suspect the idea of defending your private property rights against one of the top 10 richest people in the world is somewhat intimidating and slightly less than "normal."
The quiet-title suits filed are designed to identify all property owners and give them the ability to sell their ownership stakes at auction, according to Keoni Shultz, an attorney representing Zuckerberg.

My DIL’s mother has a smidge of that land. :-)
So Zuckerberg is trying to steal the land? Or got caught up in an expensive scam?
Wonder if he will be building a WALL around it?
Zuckerberg: “Rock walls for me, but not for thee.”
Wonder if he will be building a WALL around it?”
A wall for me but not for thee.
So no private property in Hawaii for Whites.
Zuck the creep
He is having a “do you know who I am?” moment.
I don't believe (going into this) that he grasped that some people desire to keep things they have and no amount of money will tempt them. The adage that everyone has their price isn't absolute.
My immediate thought is to offer to sell him lots of land here in Nevada. If he is gullable enough to buy my great Sierra beach front property, he can also deal with the wait for California to fall off into the ocean. I’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.
We visited that part of Kaua’i last summer. It’s beautiful. People were plenty steamed already about his plans to wall off the view. Arrogant and hypocritical move on his part. Enjoying land is one thing but blocking the views is another. I hope the local people succeed in limiting his impact on the area.
Fool should have done like Mel Gibson did and just buy an entire island.
This poor excuse for a human being is a phucking pig
Like that dude named Naboth.
Now if Hawaii had an American as Governor, He would just SEIZE ALL of Zuckerberg’s property using the Kelo Decision as the Legal Authority and turn it into a Cultural Park for the Natives
Sure looks like a great place!
Not easy to get to. They say there is no port, but it looks like great potential for a port on the North East.
Of course, he knew. That’s common knowledge even to people who’ve never been to Hawaii. Heck, even I knew it.
Zuckerberg is a dick.
