Facebook bragging of a daughter excited for her father’s lawsuit settlement has costed her family a total sum of $80,000. The Business Times describes her as a student “snacking on a massive slice of humble pie after a costly run of Facebook gloating.”

According to the Times, the Miami Herald reports that Dana Snay posted a Facebook status update, bragging the win on an age-discrimination case her father, Patrick Snay, won against the Gulliver Preparatory school in Miami, FL. The 69-year-old headmaster of the school claimed age-discrimination as a reason for why his contract was not renewed. He won the case for an $80,000 settlement in November 2011.
But after Snay’s daughter’s Facebook brag, the future of the funds is now in shaky waters and may not ever be seen. The Facebook status below, according to the judge handling the case violates the confidentiality agreement of the case.
“Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver,” she wrote to her 1,200 friends on the social network. “Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”
The younger Snay was being followed on Facebook by a number of Gulliver alumni and current students, leading school lawyer’s to learn about the post and appealing the verdict. The $80,000 settlement included a standard confidentiality clause, which keeps Snay or the school for that matter from discussing the case’s outcome.
Because of Dana Snay’s Facebook post, the $80,000 settlement was thrown out this week by the Third District Court of Appeals.
“Snay violated the agreement by doing exactly what he had promised not to do,” wrote Judge Linda Ann Wells, the Business Times reported. “His daughter then did precisely what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent.”
The final option for Patrick Snay to attempt to reverse the ruling is to file a motion for a rehearing or appeal to the Florida Supreme Court. But according to attorney Bradley Shear, the possibility of the former school worker from getting his money back is extremely low.
