Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes: BBC reports that when Dana Snay learned her father had been awarded an $80,000 cash settlement in an age-discrimination lawsuit against his former employer, she couldn't resist bragging about it on Facebook. "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver," the teen posted to her 1,200 Facebook friends. "Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT." Trouble was her father had signed a confidentiality agreement so the school refused to pay a dime and a Florida appeals court has found in the school's favor. “Snay violated the agreement by doing exactly what he had promised not to do,” wrote Judge Linda Ann Wells. “His daughter then did precisely what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent.” Snay's father said in depositions that he and his wife knew they had to say something to their daughter because she suffered “psychological scars” from issues during her enrollment at the school and was aware that they were in mediation with Gulliver attorneys. Attorneys say it's unlikely confiding in Dana Snay would have jeopardized the settlement — it was the facebook post that did them in. "Remember when all you had to worry about was your daughter posting naked selfies of herself on Facebook?" writes Elie Mystal at "Above the Law". "Now, things are worse."
