Snarky Facebook Gloat Costs Papa Cash

Yesterday's post was about an arrogant snarky franchise manager taking advantage of an employee and getting whacked for a big settlement.  Today's is about the arrogant snarky daughter of a successful plaintiff who likely cost her dad his compensation in an age discrimination claim by posting about it on facebook - proving her dad had violated the confidentiality agreement.

According to the report in the Miami Herald, a 69 year old headmaster at a private preparatory school was denied contract renewal and sued claiming age discrimination.  The case eventually settled with the plaintiff receiving approximately $90,000 and with a confidentiality clause.  However, the plaintiff's college aged daughter posted the following on her facebook page:

“Mama and Papa Snay won the case against [the prep school],” Dana Snay posted days later to her 1,200 Facebook friends. “[The school] is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”

When her former prep-mates/facebook friends saw it, word got back to the school. The Florida Appellate Court has set aside the settlement.

According to Yahoo Shine, this is an image from the daughter's facebook page:
