Basically, the guy won an age-discrimination lawsuit and were awarded an $80,000 lawsuit. Their teenager daughter then posted this on her public Facebook:
Now, the school says they broke the confidentiality agreement and therefore does not have to pay the $80,000 settlement.
Granted, the teenager is a brat and didn’t think too hard before posting.
But is it really fair or legal to reverse a settlement over something your impulsive daughter did? Most of the articles I’ve seen online lambast the Facebooking daughter, but don’t go into the legality of whether a teenage daughter’s posting should erase a settlement. I have to imagine the parents had no idea she posted that at the time.
