Mark Zuckerberg Has an Entire Team to Manage His Imageā€

Still, as the Honolulu Star Advisor points out, Zuckerberg is likely more interested in securing his land than he is in swindling Hawaiian land owners out of a few thousand dollars.

Zuckberberg-controlled companies filed eight so-called "quiet" title lawsuits in a Kauai court on December 30 requesting the forced sales at public auction to the highest bidder, which would allow him to make his secluded beach-front land on the island's north shore even more private, according the Honolulu Star-Advertiser newspaper.

A contested case could potentially cost landowners more than $200,000, though Zuckerberg attorney Keoni Shultz has said the Facebook CEO has no intention of contesting any co-owner who can prove their interest in any of the land parcels.

-Mark Zuckerberg has been trying to increase privacy on a piece of real estate he owns in Hawaii. Because the ownership stakes are passed down and divided among family descendants by the state, many people don't realize they have a claim until action is taken against them in court. Contrary to how it sounds, which is basically a story about a typical rich bully stomping on the little guy, Zuckerberg and his legal team are asserting that this was to identify said descendants and give them money for their property. "It is important to us that we respect Hawaiian history and traditions".

'We are working with a professor of native Hawaiian studies and long time member of this community, who is participating in this quiet title process with us.

"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", the post reads. But close to a dozen parcels within his property are owned by local families who have rights to traverse his estate, reports the Honolulu Star Advertiser. Some of these people, who inherited or owned interest in the land, are dead.

Reports by Honolulu Star-Advertiser suggest that nearly eight lawsuits have been filed so far against hundreds of people in that area.

In the eight cases for parcels of land, the goal of the quiet title and partition lawsuit is to recognize who may be an owner or co-owner of the kuleana land and inform them of their claim and give them the opportunity to establish interest.

In his post, Zuckerberg said to find all those entitled to kuleana lands, "we filed what is called a 'quiet title" action.
