Okay, so we don’t really know if the following involves mediation, but it was too good a news tidbit to pass up.
“Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”
That bit about the vacation was a joke.
Gulliver Preparatory School, however, was not amused, claiming that Papa Snay had violated a confidentiality clause in a settlement agreement, and refusing to pay the $80K settlement. Note: Dana, who must be a popular teenager, has 1200 Facebook friends. Papa Snay successfully moved to enforce the settlement agreement, but the trial court was reversed by the appeals court. An appeal to the Florida Supreme Court is still a possibility.
Moral: don’t spill the beans about a confidential settlement, lest your teenager spread the news on Facebook.
