Couple's $680G beach house is built on wrong lot

Recommended Posts

HAMMOCK DUNES ? Six months after building a large custom house with an ocean view, Missouri residents Mark and Brenda Voss learned of a big problem ? it?s on the wrong lot.

Their three-story vacation rental house with an estimated construction value of $680,000 actually sits on the lot next to the one they own in the gated Ocean Hammock resort community.

?We are in total disbelief, just amazed this could happen,? said Mark Voss, who owns a property management and real estate company in central Missouri. ?We may have moved (to Ocean Hammock) someday. But, with this headache and grief, we?re not so sure. The Midwest is looking pretty good right now.?

The Voss?s builder, Keystone Homes, which is based in Ormond Beach but builds primarily in Flagler County, has contacted the two lot owners and other parties and is trying to negotiate a settlement, said Robbie Richmond, company vice president.

?The buck stops with the builder. We know that. We are in the process of trying to schedule a conference call and find a fair resolution without the lawyers,? Richmond said. ?I have built about 600 homes in Flagler County and this has never happened to me before. It does happen, but it?s rare.?

The Vosses, who own 18 other residential lots in the Hammock Dunes master-planned community, paid $160,000 for one with a street address of 23 Ocean Ridge Blvd. North in June 2012, according to Flagler County property records. They hired Keystone Homes to design and build a 5,000-square-foot house there to use as a vacation rental managed by Vacation Rental Pros in St. Augustine.

      Google settles case with a terminated employee over workplace activism
      by Usman Khan Lodhi



      Google has reached a settlement with an employee it let go in 2019, Bloomberg reported today. The employee named Laurence Berland, who was fired for allegedly violating the firm's data security policies, had sued Google for wrongful termination. He claimed that he'd been fired for his workplace activism, and is one of the five employees that the government has recently accused Google of firing for exercising their rights.

      The settlement, details of which are unknown, was approved in July by U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). When asked to comment on the matter, Berland's attorney declined while Google maintained its denial of any wrongdoing.

      While this case may be settled, the NLRB is still investigating other allegations against the company, which notably includes termination of employees for protesting against the firm's relationship with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and creating a pop-up message informing fellow workers of their labor rights. Those claims are currently being heard at a trial, which is now in its third week, by a San Francisco-based agency judge.

      According to Alphabet, Google's parent company, only those workers were terminated that accessed information "outside the scope of their job", which caused "a lot of stress" by "tracking a wide range of individual calendars" of coworkers.

      Zoom agrees to pay $86 million to settle class-action lawsuit
      by Usama Jawad

      While online collaboration and communication platforms have boomed in the past year or so due to the ongoing pandemic, Zoom has been facing an uphill battle In April 2020, a vulnerability in the software allowed attackers to steal Windows credentials, and many companies such as SpaceX, Google, and Standard Chartered banned its use. Although Zoom did fix the issues eventually, the damage had already been done and the company was sued by multiple entities. Now, it has reached a settlement in one such class-action lawsuit in the U.S.

      Image via Zoom The BBC reports that the lawsuit in question claimed that Zoom did not safeguard the privacy of its users and shared their data with firms like Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn. It also took shots at the software's security features, saying that zoombombing was a serious issue and end-to-end encryption doesn't work either. It was filed on behalf of all paid and free subscribers in the U.S.

      While Zoom did not admit to wrongdoing in any of the aforementioned accusations, it still reached a settlement worth $86 million with the plaintiffs. It also agreed to enhance its security features and to provide its staff trainings on best practices when handling sensitive data. Yet another provision is that the subscribers included in the class action should be offered 15% refunds on their subscriptions or $25, whichever is greater. A Zoom representative stated that:

      It is important to note that the settlement has not been approved yet by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh yet. The lawyers from the plaintiffs' side have also stated that they plan to seek a further $21.3 million from Zoom in lieu of legal fees.

      Google to improve ad practices after being slapped with $268 million fine
      by Usama Jawad

      Google's antitrust problems are nothing new. The company's acquisition of Fitbit was investigated by the European Commission (EC) in 2020 and it was eventually cleared. In the same year, a lawsuit accusing Google of monopolistic behavior was also filed by the United States Department of Justice. The list goes on and on.

      Now, the tech giant has agreed to improve its ad practices after reaching a €220 million (~$268 million) settlement with France's antitrust watchdog.



      Reuters reports that investigation began after a French news publishing group filed a complaint against Google. France's antitrust authority found out that Google's ad management platform Google Ad Manager is biased towards AdX, which is the tech giant's own marketplace for ads. Publishers utilize this platform to sell ad space to advertisers in real time.

      The investigation determined that winning bids for ad spaces were shared with Google Ad Manager. AdX also offered better interoperability with Google Ad Manager compared to platforms owned by rivals.

      Following the results of this investigation, Google has decided to reach a settlement with the French antitrust authority. As a part of this settlement, the tech giant will have to improve its ad services to offer better interoperability with other platforms, and will also pay a €220 million (~$268 million) fine. The antitrust authority's chief Isabelle de Silva highlighted that the fine could have been higher had Google not agreed to a settlement, saying that:

      Google does not plan to appeal this decision in court. More importantly, this settlement opens the doors for rival publishers to seek damages from Google in light of the watchdog's findings.
