Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg has dropped his quiet title actions against numerous fractional owners of kuleana lands or small pieces of land, within his oceanfront land owned on the island of Kauai’s North Shore. This marks as an attempt to get ownership of small pieces of lands, a lawyer demonstrating Zuckerberg established to Pacific Business News during the weekend.
In an op-ed piece issued in The Garden Island last month, Priscilla Chan said that they were dropping quiet title lawsuits and would coordinate with the community on a fresh approach. While that latest plan has not yet been disclosed, it is now evident that the tech titan has shadowed through with his attempt to not move forward with his quiet title cases.
Allison Mizuo Lee, an associate with Honolulu law company Cades Schutte LLP who is from Kauai, informed PBN that discharges have been submitted in 7 out of the 8 cases. She reported that the case counting Carlos Andrade who holds part of a plot among the many small parcels of land Zuckerberg doesn’t own within his complete larger parcel, could not be separately terminated by Zuckerberg.
Mizuo Lee added that Dr. Andrade plans to pursue this personal partition action. The customer will not remain a plaintiff in that case. A partition case comprises two or more people holding real estate cooperatively, with each having the privilege to partition or separate, the plot if they no longer intend to be co-owners.
In December, the Zuckerberg submitted quiet title cases against owners of kuleana plots within his assets. Ownership of numerous kuleana plots in Hawaii have passed down via generations since the Hawaiian dominion began permitting private ownership of plot in 1850.
Quiet title case comprises filing a litigation to institute a party’s title to real assets against everyone and anyone, and thus quiet any claims or challenges to the title.
