Mark Zuckerberg Drops Lawsuit Against Hundreds Over Traditional Land

Mark Zuckerberg Drops Lawsuit Against Hundreds Over Traditional Land

But Zuckerberg reversed course on Friday, despite months of work by a team of lawyers and legal experts to piece together property records that, in some cases, were identified in court records as possibly belonging to unnamed individuals.

Some neighbors planned to march on Zuckerberg's property in protest on Saturday, according to Business Insider. This type of legal action is common in Hawaii, according to the Adviser, but critics say it has reduced Native Hawaiian landownership.

Facebook CEO has said he will review his earlier stance of filing quiet title lawsuits after locals complained it's against local traditions.

"People are furious down here with him", said Hart, a hibiscus farmer who lives about a quarter-mile from one edge of Zuckerberg's roughly 700-acre property. In particular, several parcels of land, totaling less than eight acres of the 700, belong in part to families who inherited the land through the Kuleana Act, a 167-year-old Hawaiian law.

It's Facebook CEO (and trendy pick to run for president in 2020) Mark Zuckerberg.

The listing describes a: "once in a lifetime opportunity to own a property of rare and magical beauty utterly private and secluded..."

"As with most transactions, the majority owners have the right to sell their land if they want, but we need to make sure smaller partial owners get paid for their fair share too".

Hundreds of native Hawaiians are preparing to gather at Mark Zuckerberg's large Kauai estate to protest a six-foot wall erected to keep them out from their ancestral land.

Kaniela Ing, the state representative for Hawaii stated that she respects and admires Zuckerberg's reconsideration into the matter and admires his willingness to hold further talks.

The gatherings, in which Zuckerberg also met with school and business leaders, took place in two Texas cities on January 18 as part of the billionaire's "Year of Travel", in which he will visit states he has not been to before, Baptist News Global reported.

'The right path is to sit down and discuss how to best move forward.

"I'm focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative", he said on Tuesday.

Last week, Zuckerberg insisted that "For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. We will continue to speak with community leaders that represent different groups, including native Hawaiians and environmentalists, to find the best path", he wrote in the open letter.
