Daughter's Facebook Post Costs Dad $80,000

Payback is a b*tch, especially when you have to pay BACK your payback over something that should have been super simple. Unfortunately, for a family in Florida, they are now learning the value of silence, which in their case is $80,000.

After her father received an age discrimination settlement from his former employer Gulliver Preparatory School, Dana Snay took to her Facebook page to share her excitement. "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT," she boasted.

Yeah, we would say it's probably safe to give some serious thought to any "suck it" message before you click "post," but even more so when there is a lawsuit involved with the object of your affection. While there is no legal penalty specifically for poor judgment, there IS one for violating a confidentiality agreement, which had been reached in the Snay case.

According to CNN, the agreement stated that Mr. and Mrs. Snay could only discuss the case with his attorneys and other professional advisers, which obviously didn't include their daughter or her 1,200 Facebook friends.

The post caused the judgment to be reversed and the new ruling stated that Snay had violated the agreement by discussing the case with his daughter and that she, in turn, did "exactly what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent."

Snay is now the headmaster at a different preparatory school in Florida and we wouldn't be surprised if his daughter is grounded...for life.
