Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is dropping multiple quiet title lawsuits filed over ownership of small plots of land located within the boundaries of his 700 acre beachfront estate on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, paid $100 million for the land in 2014 to create a private retreat for their family. But it appears that they got more than they bargained for.
The problem is that native Hawaiians may have an ownership interest in some small parcels of land inside the Zuckerberg estate. The way this can happen has to do with something unique to Hawaii called kuleana.
