Daughter's "Boast Post" Costs Dad $80k - Wells, Jaworski & Liebman, LLP

www.wellslaw.com [cached]

Patrick Snay was the Headmaster at the Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami, Florida.
He entered into an $80,000 settlement as a result of an age discrimination and retaliation suit he filed against the School. As part of the settlement, the School also agreed to pay Snay $10,000 in back pay, and $60,000 in attorneys' fees. The settlement agreement included a fairly standard confidentiality provision, that provided in relevant part, as follows: [T]he plaintiff shall not either directly or indirectly, disclose, discuss or communicate to any entity or person, except his attorneys or other professional advisors or spouse any information whatsoever regarding the existence or terms of this Agreement ... A breach ... will result in disgorgement of the Plaintiffs portion of the settlement Payments. The Snays later admitted that because their daughter Dana was involved with the case and the School (they alleged she had been retaliated against), they agreed to tell her only that the case was settled and they were happy with the result. The School then took the position that because Snay had violated the confidentiality agreement by disclosing its existence to his daughter, it would not render the $80,000 portion of the settlement to Snay. Snay then filed a motion to enforce the settlement. A hearing was held where the parties agreed to rely on their deposition testimony, to determine if Snay's daughter had knowledge of the settlement, and, if her post had violated the Agreement. Initially, Snay prevailed when the trial court agreed with Snay and granted the motion. The School appealed. Last month, on February 26, 2014, the Third District Court of Appeals for the State of Florida agreed with the School, that Snay had in fact violated the confidentiality agreement, and reversed the Circuit Court ruling. Not a good day at the Snays. Generally, confidentiality agreements and confidentiality provisions in settlement agreements provide, as a matter of course, that the parties should not, directly or indirectly disclose confidential information, or settlement terms to any outside parties, other than those with a bonafide need to know (for example, attorneys or accountants). "Directly" means that the party should not directly disclose the information, and "indirectly" means that the party should not permit the information to be disclosed by a third party. The District Court of Appeals found that Snay did violate the agreement, by doing exactly what he had promised not to do (disclosing the existence of the settlement agreement to his daughter, someone other than his attorneys, professional advisors, or spouse), and that his daughter then did precisely what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent - advertising to the Gulliver community that Snay had been successful in his age discrimination and retaliation case against the School.

Patrick Snay, 69, worked as a headmaster at Gulliver Preparatory School.
When his 2010-2011 contract was not renewed, he filed a complaint alleging age discrimination. The parties entered into a settlement agreement, the terms of which included a confidentiality provision which provided that the existence and terms of the agreement were to be kept strictly confidential or a portion of the settlement proceeds ($80,000) would be disgorged. After signing the settlement agreement, Mr. Snay and his wife agreed to inform their daughter, Dana, that the case was settled and they were happy with the result. A few days later, the school notified Mr. Snay that he had breached the settlement agreement. Mr. Snay applied to enforce the agreement. He argued that he never told Dana that he had "won" the case, Dana did not plan to go to Europe that summer, and he had to tell his daughter something about the resolution of the complaint. The appellate court ruled that Mr. Snay had breached the confidentiality clause, so he was not entitled to payment of $80,000.

In February 2014, Patrick Snay, former headmaster of the Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami, Florida learned just how airtight a confidentiality provision in a settlement agreement can be.
His story, which has garnered national coverage in recent weeks, shows what can happen when standard legal settlement provisions intersect with modern communication in the digital age. In 2010, Snay sued the Gulliver School after the school failed to renew his employment contract. Snay alleged that Gulliver had discriminated against him and that his daughter, a Gulliver student, was suffering retaliation.
