Daughter's Facebook post costs father $80,000

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 02:53 p.m. HST, Mar 03, 2014

MIAMI » A Florida teenager's Facebook post has cost her father an $80,000 legal settlement.

The Miami Herald reports that the father had sued Miami's Gulliver Preparatory School for age discrimination after he lost his job as headmaster.

The school agreed to settle the case with Patrick Snay for $80,000. The agreement included a stipulation that Snay and his wife not disclose settlement details with anyone.

The Snays' daughter, a recent graduate of the school, posted to her 1,200 Facebook friends that the money would pay for a family vacation to Europe.

"Mama and Papa Snay won the case the case against Gulliver," she wrote. "Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer."

A judge invalidated the settlement last week and said the post violated the confidentiality agreement.

Obvious, the kid didn’t learn much at her supposedly “exclusive” private prep school formerly run by daddy dearest.

That's why there are certain things you don't share with your children. And this is yet another case of an immature kid doing a stupid and costly mistake. Good bye to that vacation!

Yup. Caldwell shouldn't have let his daughter know how he felt about Cayetano. Then she wouldn't have set fire to Cayetano's campaign sign with her friend's b*ng. (Just in case the SA police are surveying evil word usage.

Except in Caldwell's case, he and daughter took no negative consequences as Cayetano thought he was being a "nice guy" and not press charges as destruction of an opponents political campaign sign is a serious offense. That and the hypocrisy of the daughter going to Obama private school and leading some teen board on leading other teens to "just say no to drugs". Instead Cayetano was an apologist saying he did bad things when he was a young kid. Problem with that is Cayetano could have been a major factor in slowing down or even stopping the billion dollar aloha train to nowhere money pit, that like the Hawaii health connector will DOOM to fail and cost Hawaii taxpayers BILLIONS of dollars. You unlike the rail propagandists on the other column you don't have to be Nostradamus to know that a train starting from an empty field to Kapolei will FAIL on Oahu and Parsons own EIS from BOTH times they did it under Harris and Mufi clearly stated the rail will NOT improve traffic congestion on Oahu.

There was a stipulation that said Snay and his wife cannot disclose the settlement........nothing about family members. Other news sources says there is an appeal coming down. Daughter may have a big mouth but was not part of the non disclosure agreement.

Don't get it, because if the amount was disclosed then definite breech of the agreement, however, if no figure was ever given and just a statement of going on vacation on the schools's dime it was not a disclosure. The daughter shouldnt have said anything but apparently the lawsuit must have been very contentious to have the daughter revel in the result of the lawsuit.
