Mark Zuckerberg bought a 700 acre parcel of land in Hawaii. That’s almost 1 1/2 square miles. But that’s not enough for him. He is suing native Hawaiians to force them to sell their land at a private auction, where he can pick it up on the cheap.
Actually, Zuckerberg doesn’t want the land, he wants the Hawaiians to lose it. It all goes back to a law from 1850 that allows native Hawaiians to own land, called the Kuleana Act. What Zuckerberg dislikes is that the property owners have the right to cross his property on the way to and from theirs. It would interfere with his privacy. Funny. he doesn’t worry about our privacy on Facebook. Typical liberal. More for me but none for thee.
Three Zuckerberg entities known as Pilaa International LLC, Northshore Kalo LLC and High Flyer LLC filed eight lawsuits on Kauai on December 30, according to the newspaper.
A partner at the Honolulu firm representing the Zuckerberg companies said large parcels of land in Hawaii often include smaller patches whose ownership isn’t well known. Some co-owners do not even know that they own part of the land.
Actions such as Zuckerberg’s are ‘the standard and prescribed process to identify all potential co-owners, determine ownership, and ensure that, if there are other co-owners, each receives appropriate value for their ownership share,’ Keoni Shultz said.
One of the defendants named by Zuckerberg is known only as Oma, without a last name, in keeping with old Hawaiian customs.
