California has a law that beaches are public property and must remain accessible to the public. Vinod Khosla, a shitstain of the first order, bought a piece of property that just happened to completely close all access to Martins Beach. The previous owners gave adequate means of access. Vinod shut that down. He got sued, fought, lost at almost every turn, and now that the SCOTUS has denied hearing the case, he has probably lost for good.
Vinod claims property rights, blah blah. I’m all for property rights, but Vinod doesn’t own the fucking beach. And he bought the property with full knowledge of state law and that the state had an effective easement with the previous owner. He claimed that the state should pay for the easement rights–no, fucker, that was already built into the cost of the property. The state already had the rights to an easement; you don’t get to charge them for something they already had.
