Daughter's Brag Costs Her Dad an $80,000 Settlement
When Patrick Snay scored a whopping $80,000 settlement in a discrimination lawsuit with his former employer, Gulliver Prep School, there was only one thing he had to do to keep the money: not tell people about it. Simple, right? We've all seen FOX shows where attractive lawyers have sex with each other -- everyone knows what a confidentiality agreement is. All Snay had to do to become considerably richer was shut his mouth.
And he did. Except to his daughter. And guess what his daughter shared with her 1,200 Facebook friends.

Despite Snay arguing that his daughter was a teenager and citing numerous precedents that teenagers are idiots, a judge ruled that Gulliver didn't have to cough up the dough. It's small consolation, but at least Snay's daughter can take solace in the knowledge that she forced an esteemed judge to utter the words "suck it."
