Ms. de Lesseps was alluding to an incident that took place several weeks earlier, on the evening of Dec. 23, when she tried to escape a patrol car after getting arrested for disorderly intoxication and assaulting a police officer at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Fla.

Tech billionaire, ordered to reopen public beach, appeals to supreme court

Today 05:12 GMT

A Silicon Valley billionaire who was ordered by California courts to restore public access to a popular surfing beach is seeking to take his case to the US supreme court.

In August 2017, a California appeals court ordered him to restore access by unlocking the gate to the road, an order with which he has only intermittently complied. In a petition to the supreme court filed Thursday, Khosla’s attorneys argued that the state law regulating California’s coastline is “Orwellian”, and that the state court’s interpretation of the law in Khosla’s case “crosses a constitutional line”.
