  • The Supreme Court refused to hear a case involving a California billionaire who had been ordered to restore public access to a beach he owns in Northern California. 
  • The property, known to locals as Martins Beach, used to be a popular spot for surfing and fishing. 
  • Sun Microsystems cofounder Vinod Khosla bought the beach for roughly $ 37 million in 2008 and later closed off public access to it.
  • The Surfrider Foundation sued over the closure, saying it was unfair to bar entry to a beach to which the public has had access for decades.
