In a 4-year legal suit, co-founder of Sun Microsystems Vinod Khosla has now asked the Supreme Court for help to keep surfers off his beach.
Khosla filed a petition to the Supreme Court on Thursday after a seemingly endless battle attempted to convince the state's judiciary to keep the population from its beach property.
According to Bloomberg co-founder of Sun Microsystems, bought the beach property in 2008 and built a gate shortly after the purchase to close the beach.
Like the 151-page petition, Khosla challenges the highest court of the land to allow him to exercise his property rights. The property rights are against a California law of 1972 that allows citizens of the state to reach California's coast, which spans the entire length of the state.
According to the source, Khosla, who is 63 years old, believes that he owns the rights. Public access to the road leading to the beach at Martins Beach was cut off, which he claimed was part of the property he owned paid about $ 32.5 million about ten years ago.
The co-founder left the beach access over the gate in late 2009, after which the suits followed. In his opinion, the state would have to compensate him for "easement" if he wants to give the beachgoers access to the road that leads to the beach.
