Teen's Facebook Post Costs Dad $80,000 Lawsuit

A teen's post on her Facebook page ends up costing her father an $80,000 legal settlement
(CNN) MIAMI, FLORIDA - The former head of a private prep school in Miami is out an $80,000 discrimination settlement after his daughter boasted about it on Facebook.

Patrick Snay filed an age discrimination complaint when his contract wasn't renewed.

In November 2011, Gulliver Preparatory School, and Snay came to an agreement in which Snay would be paid $10,000 in back pay, and an $80,000 settlement.

Gulliver schools also agreed to cut Snay's attorneys a check for $60,000.

But, Snay's daughter took to Facebook, boasting, "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. Suck it."

Within a few days, Gulliver schools sent a letter to Snay's attorneys stating that Snay had broken a confidentiality agreement and that he would not be receiving the $80,000 settlement.

The court agreed.
