Court decision is blow to Vinod Khosla and other wealthy
landowners seeking to buy renowned beaches, making public land
Khosla has already said in the past that he will appeal
this as high as the Supreme Court if he loses lower court
Justice has not been served IMO, because the beach has
been inaccessible to the public except theoretically by boat
or submarine or helicopter or parachute since 2010.
That's a whole teenaged cycle of kids who would have
wanted to surf on what is regarded as the best surfing
beach in the county.
A little info on Mr. Khosla. He is an Indian immigrant, born in New
Delhi, presumably still an Indian citizen, and I believe a naturalized
American. Obama dined at his home in 2013, three years after Khosla
locked the gate which gave the public access to the beach. "Khosla, a
green guru, now a well-known figure in Washington DC circles, is
obviously in with the Democratic Party."
