Ex-Gulliver Prep Headmaster Loses $80K Settlement Because Teen Daughter Bragged About It on Facebook

gulliverlogo-1.jpg
Patrick Snay was headmaster at Gulliver Preparatory until 2010 when the school declined to renew his contract. He successfully sued for age discrimination and won $10,000 in back wages along with a nice $80,000 settlement. However the deal included a confidentiality agreement.

Unfortunately for Snay, he told his teenage daughter about the settlement and then she promptly bragged about it on Facebook. Now a court has ruled that the school no longer has to pay the $80,000.

According to the Miami Herald, Snay and his wife agreed not to tell anyone about the settlement. However, Snay made the mistake of telling his daughter. She had been a student at Gulliver and he claims she suffered "psychological scars" from her time at the school.

Dana Snay took to Facebook to tell her 1,200-plus friends that, "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT."

As the younger Snay was friends with several current and former students, word got back to the school. Gulliver's attorneys informed the Snays that the confidentiality agreement had been broken and they no longer had to pay up.

The elder Snay had won an earlier case forcing the school to pay, but now the Third District Court of Appeals has sided with the prep school. However, Snay can move for a rehearing or appeal the decision to the Florida Supreme Court.

AHHH HAAAAA  HAAAAAAA

The 80K should stay in the hands of the school, not given to a jag off who runs his mouth about getting over and teaching his little arrogant slut daughter to trot around town like some filthy little whore monger.    They've taken down their site now, but you can still see many shots of her with booze and a tongue sticking out ready to lap the luxury of someone else's hard work.    So glad......so happy....couldn't happen to a nicer set of fools.

Mr Snay was a great head master. Its cruel to be fired with no renewal. His daughter is young and if the account was hacked at some point in life a parent is not responsible for a teens action. Plus I find all these horrible comments on his daughter uncalled for.

"Your honor, in the defense of my client I would like for the jury to know that my client's daughter's facebook account was hacked during the time that the posts were made..."

I'll bet that's the same Patrick Snay who taught English at Miami Carol City Sr. High in the late '60s. His daughter should have kept quiet. (Duh!)

Spending the first seven years of my life growing up in Communist Cuba I was taught - if you eat steak for lunch and talk about it with your friends, your dad will be parking his ass in front of the firing squad tomorrow for breakfast- (it was meat purchased in the black market) how's that for keeping secrets? They should lend me that little bitch for a week.

What a snobby bitch, like they needed the 80k anyways? Clearly they are rich bastards and thejr daughter is spoiled and the way she brags about it is evidence to that

Papa Snay was my principal at Killian. Couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

Lets hope she gets scholarships because if I was Mama and Papa Snay that brat would be paying her own way through college due to this.

A good lesson for what sounds to be a little brat.  Hopefully no vacation for her.

@vivereincmiamiis a perfect example of why atrocities, slander and inappropriate behavior continue to flourish in today's world.  What an idiotic thing to say about the computer being hacked.  Who did that?  Perhaps it was a gremlin or a ghost from the Gulliver Prep dungeon to continue more cruel punishment to Pappa Snay.   He most likely was not renewed a contract for he displays a lack of integrity, loyalty and tact, which has spread to his adolescent daughter.  SUCK IT!!


I am so glad that sometimes the dragon wins.  Another elitist attitude that found out the hard way they are just like everyone else, and deserve to think about their beliefs, behaviors and attitudes. 


I hope this lesson stews a long time in their minds and soul, and I pray not a single penny finds it way back into the hands of these lame opportunists.
