Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of Facebook is reconsidering suing Hawaiians to make them sell their stake…
According to Business Insider
The Facebook CEO was met with widespread criticism after it was recently revealed that he filed quiet title lawsuits against a few hundred Hawaiians with ancestral ownership rights to portions of land on his 700-acre property.
“Based on feedback from the local community, we are reconsidering the quiet title process and discussing how to move forward,” Zuckerberg said in a statement, which was first reported by BuzzFeed News. “We want to make sure we are following a process that protects the interests of property owners, respects the traditions of native Hawaiians, and preserves the environment.”
“We cannot allow billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg to use piles of money to tilt Hawaii’s justice system against local residents,” Ing recently posted on Facebook. “Let’s remind Zuckerberg that, in Hawaii, we approach each other with aloha and talk story first. We don’t initiate conversation by suing our neighbors.”
