Mark Zuckerberg Is Being Sued By His Would-Be Neighbor

Mark Zuckerberg Sued By Neighbor

Facebook’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been in a dispute with a real estate developer in regards to the billionaire’s private home in Palo Alto, California since 2012 and the dispute has resulted in yet another lawsuit filed against the billionaire in which the New York Times reports to be a moved aimed at accessing Zuckerberg’s personal finances and net worth.

The move by the developer, Mircea Voskerician, could leave details of the billionaire’s personal life and conduct exposed to public scrutiny.

The legal proceedings come after the developer told Facebook’s founder that he planned to build a 9,600 square foot house behind Zuckerberg’s home in Palo Alto. He allegedly said that the house would have a direct view into Zuckerberg’s house, including his master bedroom.

Mark and the real estate developer reached a deal in which Facebook’s chief executive officer acquired the rights to the entire property for $1.7 million, however, Voskerician claims that there was more to the deal, according to USA Today.

Voskerician claims Mark promised, in addition to the cash payment, to introduce him to “influential people” in Silicon Valley in exchange for the property.

As a matter of policy, Facebook does not comment on their CEO’s personal affairs.

Zuckerberg’s attorney Patrick Gunn was quoted by the NY Times as having said that “the claims asserted in the lawsuit have no merit and my client intends to defend them vigorously.” His lawyers have also asserted that Voskerician is trying to extort and embarrass their client.
