Judge tells Khosla to quit stalling and open Martins Beach gate

Despite losing the Martins Beach lawsuit five months ago—in which billionaire Vinod Khosla claimed that a treaty with Mexico made prior to California Statehood gave him to right to block access to the beach after he purchased the surrounding property—he has kept the gate closed.

Now the judge has clarified her ruling in a final judgement, ordering the gate open.

Khosla had attempted to keep the gate closed after the initial ruling claiming that he was waiting to be ordered to do so by the California Coastal Commission.
