Congrats Dana, you're out of the family. No more trip, no college help, no more Christmases.


/that's how I'd handle it.
 
2014-02-28 05:26:44 PM  
She must feel awful. Time to post a status on facebook.
 
2014-02-28 05:29:31 PM  
Guess you're not going to Europe. Suck it
 
2014-02-28 05:30:37 PM  
"Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT."

Something tells me she just cost herself a European vacation. Too bad, I've heard they're pretty awesome.

He was probably too old to understand the terms of the agreement.
 
2014-02-28 05:33:24 PM  
Did the school's lawyers have the daughter sign the confidentiality agreement? Since she was being directly affected by the events and outcome, they should have had her sign as well, but they didn't.

Suck it, school - pay up!

Nice try, but her father broke the agreement by telling her.

Good job, kid. Now the lawyers get your college fund.

Shhhh, you are going to run afoul of the Fark GED in law crowd.

The daughter learned of the confidential agreement because he told her. He blew it.

Did the agreement say "you can tell all your family and friends, as long as they pinky-swear to keep it a secret"?
 
2014-02-28 05:42:06 PM  
This family learned a valuable lesson... Keep your mouths shut.

Oh and for the record, if I had a daughter in that situation I would have told her . It's his fault for being ignorant of the child he raised.

Also, the dude is 69 with a daughter in that was just in gradeschool. I won't feel bad for him and his young trophy wife.
 
2014-02-28 05:43:02 PM  
Ha ha.

Remember that inheritance of yours?
 
2014-02-28 05:43:07 PM  
I don't really care about the case -- other than it sucks to have something ganked away by lawyers.
Lawyers are awful, soulless subhuman evil parasites.

"Here's a huge windfall of cash.  You can't tell your family about it.  Sign here."

NDAs are pure bullshiat.  I dont care if they're legal.  They are unmitigated horseshiat.

that story was grrrreat
 
2014-02-28 05:43:41 PM  
Telling 1200 people on Facebook that private thing that your dad told you not to tell anyone about? Priceless  $80,000.00
 
2014-02-28 05:43:51 PM  
Such clauses in settlements should be banned because they are blatantly unconstitutional.

That's not how confidentially agreements work.

TFA says that the daughter was being directly affected by the events at school since she attended there - how could they legally be forced *not* to tell her?

I still think the school's lawyers farked up by not getting the daughter to sign, but then I'm not presiding over it, so none of this matters anyway.

C'est la vie.
 
2014-02-28 05:46:03 PM  
She'll always have Paris, Texas or Berlin, Maine as a consolation prize.
 
2014-02-28 05:46:30 PM  
By the way, 1200 friends on Facebook?

That's ridiculous. Do people just accept/send invites to anything with a pulse?
 
2014-02-28 05:47:11 PM  
So the confidentiality terms include not telling anyone who won?

"Daddy? Where did you get all this money from for my European vacation?"

"I, Uh, Oh, drug dealing. OK, are you happy now."

Perhaps if the school did't want people to know they discriminated based on age, then instead of trying to silence people they should perhaps not discriminate by age.

G-dam narcissistic  women , cant learn to keep there big mouth shut!

Dear God it's getting dumb in here.....
 
2014-02-28 05:49:50 PM  
I mean, the daughter did not reveal the amount of the settlement, but really... not even being allowed to tell you settle a case is kinda screwed up.

Hey, he was getting $80k for farking free from a nuisance lawsuit. A free $80k is worth signing an NDA.

Can't be any worse than the movie.
 
2014-02-28 05:55:01 PM  
Probably the wording did it, if she just said going to Europe it may not have meant anything on its own (granted if she didn't go tell everyone why)

It's not unusual if you joined FB when it started in HS or college.

But she doesn't have to break up with Jack. I hear that European food can be fattening

That's what I was thinking. How the hell else do you explain it?
 
2014-02-28 06:03:12 PM  
Oh, and never talk about money, especially with your children.
 
2014-02-28 06:04:01 PM  
I'm missing some details here. She didn't say anything about the settlement amounts so where did the details regarding the settlement get released?

Were the details on the suit regarding the violation of the NDA?
 
2014-02-28 06:04:05 PM  

sheep snorter: //Never sign one, you ignorant f*cks.


Speaking as an ignorant f*ck, I'd sign one if it meant an 80 K payout. I'd probably even live up to the terms. That's just how us f*cks roll.

sheep snorter: "Daddy? Where did you get all this money from for my European vacation?"

Try reading TFA again:

FTFA: Alone, it's unlikely confiding in Dana Snay would have jeopardized the settlement. But having just graduated from Gulliver, she took to social media to crow - the European vacation was just a joke, apparently - and in doing so broadcast to current and former students of the school that Gulliver had just lost its case with its former headmaster.

There was no vacation in the first place, the dipstick literally made the whole vacation thing up just as an excuse to intentionally violate the confidentiality agreement.

says on the yahoo page quoting this she wrote:
However, Snay's daughter, Dana, now at Boston College and a part-time Starbucks barista, couldn't resist bragging about the case on Facebook. "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver," she wrote. "Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT."

I'm not cheering for the school, what they did was wrong. What I'm trying to say is that some NDAs are pure BS but they are legal. Come on, If you were in that situation, would you sign, keep your mouth shut and get $80,000 or tell everyone and get $0?
 
2014-02-28 06:14:29 PM  

God-is-a-Taco: Oh and for the record, if I had a daughter in that situation I would have told her


I wouldn't personally.  Heck, me and my wife keep certain work stuff from each other because its just not right for me or her to know.  And neither of us do anything remotely important from a legal standpoint.  She does payroll and accounting for a small business.  I know most of the people that work there.  Its not my business to know what they make... who makes more... etc.

BTW... I bet both parties were allowed to say "we've settled for an undisclosed sum".  He should have told his daughter that... told her it would be foolish to tell anyone anything... and here's some money for your vacation.

or they really did discriminate against him and said $80k is easier than a nasty public lawsuit.

/now that it's out I wonder if other people will realize they have a case.
//NDA's are bs, how many killer doctors are out there now because the hospital shut up the victims?

downstairs: I bet both parties were allowed to say "we've settled for an undisclosed sum". He should have told his daughter that...


According to TFA he told her even less than that.

Context matters, though.  If he said "we're happy with the outcome WINK WINK" to her while drinking champagne and gesturing towards a stack of hundred dollar bills, that sounds like a legitimate NDA violation.
