Guess who's not going to Europe...
Daughter's Facebook boast costs former Gulliver Prep headmaster $80,000 discrimination settlement
Hey kids, file this one under things not to do on Facebook.
The Third District Court of Appeal tossed out an $80,000 discrimination settlement Wednesday between Gulliver Preparatory School and its former headmaster Patrick Snay, ruling the ex-employee and his daughter breached the terms of a confidential agreement when she took to social media to brag about it.
"Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver," Dana Snay posted days later to her 1,200 Facebook friends. "Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT."
The post, seen by current and former Gulliver students, made its way back to the school's attorneys, who told the Snays they'd violated the deal. Patrick Snay last year won a Circuit Court ruling to enforce the deal, but Judge Linda Ann Wells overturned that decision Wednesday.
