Daughter's Facebook Brag Costs Her Family $80,000
Yahoo! Shine ^ | February 28, 2014 | Elise Solé

Posted on 03/01/2014 2:37:03 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Call it the biggest Facebook mistake ever. A daughter’s snarky status update has cost her father the $80,000 settlement he won in an age-discrimination lawsuit.

According to the Miami Herald, Patrick Snay, 69, was the headmaster at Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami for several years, but in 2010, the school didn’t renew his contract. Snay sued his former employer for age discrimination and won a settlement of $80,000 in November 2011. The agreement contained a standard confidentiality clause, prohibiting Snay or the school from talking about the case.

However, Snay’s daughter, Dana, now at Boston College and a part-time Starbucks barista, couldn’t resist bragging about the case on Facebook. “Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver,” she wrote. “Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”

Dana has 1,200 Facebook friends, many of whom are current and former Gulliver students, and news of the post made its way back to the school’s lawyers, who appealed the verdict. The Third District Court of Appeal tossed out the $80,000 settlement earlier this week. “Snay violated the agreement by doing exactly what he had promised not to do,” Judge Linda Ann Wells wrote. “His daughter then did precisely what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent.”

If you’re the beneficiary of a legal settlement, DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

DANG!

It’s unfortunate his lawyer didn’t make it clear enough to the whole family that anybody talking about it could violate the terms of the contract.

“Dana, now at Boston College and a part-time Starbucks barista”

Methinks Miss Biglips will now be a full-time barista and a part-time student. She has finally learned the first thing about actions having consequences.

Dana’s friend count on Facebook is now 1198. Both her parents “un-friended” her when they found out that Dana cost them 80k.

I think that just about says everything about the young "lady" we need to know. Hope she enjoys her summer at Starbucks.

Since when was his whole family a party to the lawsuit?

Was his daughter a plaintiff too?

I seriously doubt it.

Or was he not even allowed to disclose the results of the settlement to his own family members?

Looks like a legal hole you should be able to drive a truck through...

How can someone not even involved in a lawsuit be legally subject to a settlement of that lawsuit?

A quick perusal of the link to her Facebook timeline shows she “likes” “Girls” and “Ready for Hillary”. She obviously needs much more than an east coast, elite education.

How many foxy female teachers have been busted for having sex with one of their teenage students because the kid started bragging to his buddies?.......LOL!

I was wondering that too, but maybe that’s the case.

As the one who was bound by the agreement he should NOT have disclosed the results to his daughter, or if he did he should have told her that she was NOT to reveal them.

She must really be a very stupid girl. That picture of her further down the thread is just dreadful.

“Age discrimination”? Perhaps this was a flimsy lawsuit in the first place, and karma took hold.

The party is responsible because he revealed it to the unreliable blabber. It comes back to the party. However word got out, he was the source.

I believe there will come a time when it will be uncool to be on Facebook, because of things such as this.

Don’t do Facebook, nor do I “tweet”, nor never will I.

..... Oksana chose to speak of her ex on Howard Stern's radio show back in October, a mistake that will cost her almost $400,000.

Under the 43-year-old's agreement with the Lethal Weapon actor, the singer - who has daughter Lucia, aged four, with the star - was not supposed to discuss him at all.

The beauty was receiving payments as part of the $750,000 settlement with Gibson after a nasty split in 2010 that included claims of physical abuse and a leaked tape recording where the actor belligerently berates her. . ." linky

What could be clearer than “Don’t talk about this”? If I was the college, I’d be magnanimous about it and say “Yes, we owe you a settlement for age discrimination so here’s one dollar for your troubles. You obviously didn’t need the 80,000 since you were just going to use it to send your daughter to Europe.”

The college will probably have to sue to collect, as some of the money has probably already been spent — it was received several years ago.
