Zuckerberg defends land grab
FACEBOOK founder Mark Zuckerberg denies his reason for taking several Hawaiian families to court is to force them to sell their plots in his $130million, 280ha property. Under local law, a dozen families have the right to live on land within the billionaire's property on Kauai island. On Facebook, he said he had reached a sale agreement with the majority owners of each of the plots and that the lawsuits were intended to find the minor owners - some of whom owned less than 1% of a plot - and recompense them. However, his legal action could force owners of undeveloped land to sell.
