You 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 Â£50,000
Dana Snay, from Florida in the US, told her 1,200 Facebook friends: â€˜Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver.
â€˜Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.â€™
Danaâ€™s father, Patrick Snay, 69, had days earlier won $10,000 (Â£6,000) in back pay and a settlement understood to be worth $80,000 (Â£47,800) â€“ according to the Miami Herald â€“ 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 Floridaâ€™s supreme court.
