PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California real estate developer is suing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg over a deal involving property behind Zuckerberg's home.

Mircea Voskerician says he agreed to sell his stake in the property to Zuckerberg in exchange for a promise that Zuckerberg would introduce him to other wealthy people who might want to buy homes. Voskerician says Zuckerberg never made those introductions.

His lawsuit, filed this month in Santa Clara County, claims breach of contract. The San Jose Mercury News reported (http://bit.ly/1jbENyZ) the lawsuit Monday.

Zuckerberg's attorney, Patrick Gunn, told the Mercury News his client paid Voskerician $1.7 million for the right to buy the property. He says Voskerician's lawsuit is meritless.
