This girl’s facebook post cost her dad £50,000: Find out how

DanaYou wonder how this could happen? Agreement are not meant to be breached or broken, especially when it has a legal backing. So was the case of a teenage girl, Dana Snay who bragged on facebook about a confidential payout clause she was paid by her former workplace and consequently cost her father to pay a fine of $80,000, an equivalent of £50,000

Dana Snay, from Florida in the US, told her 1,200 Facebook friends: ‘Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver.

‘Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.’

Dana’s father, Patrick Snay, 69, had days earlier won $10,000 (£6,000) in back pay and a settlement understood to be worth $80,000 (£47,800) – according to the Miami Herald – from Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami for age discrimination.

But the school refused to pay up, and a judge backed its stance, on the grounds that Mr Snay was not meant to have told anyone the details of the settlement.

Mr Snay, who is now a headteacher at another school, could still appeal at Florida’s supreme court.
