But if you think  about it, the girl did NOT sign the confidentiality agreement. The father did. He didn't talk about it. The girl did.


To make any kind of judgement on this issue, we would need to see the wording of the agreement. Did the father sign for the whole family? Or just for him?

Legally, is she a separate entity? I would appeal again.
Then he broke it by telling his family.

Not really.    She is the one who posted it on Facebook for all to see.  
The dad should never had told her, but she is not innocent in this.

the girl is innocent ! blame those that uses every single dirty tactic to get their money back !( the school refused to pay a dime because the father had signed a confidentiality agreement ).. really ? so how would a father keep that kind of money a secret from daughter and wife? or am i seeing things wrong here ?
if i would be them i would just tell them that her account has been hacked by SOMEONE with this kind of info !   o well .. only in USA ! things like this can happen lol !

I would imagine that immediate family would be included in the confidentiality agreement.

this is getting of topic !  lets start over lol ..  i agree with you. we shouldn't post everything on FB.  
what i am trying to say is that, sometimes honest people are being punished for being honest ! i just think that is wrong, we may call it stupid or dumb! but to use their honesty to punish them ? in some cases, yes we should .. but in this case ? hard to tell ..

There's nothing wrong with being honest - except when there is a confidentiality agreement.

Or if someone tells you something in confidence. I bet not too many people tell this little blabbermouth anything they don't want the whole world to know.

Exactly, dude had no business telling his daughter the specifics of the agreement.  Or, if he chose to do so, should have reinforced the fact that the agreement was in place.

It's called living in the big people's world.

Like was said, the actual wording of the "confidentiality agreement" is what can sway this case one way or the other.

how do we know he did????  all he had to do come home happy, and his kid would figure he won the case. that would be all she needed to start yapping
father may not have said a word to her, you know how teens are, (and some not so teens), what they don't know they make up. just to look cool in front of their fb friends

Exactly... there is a "reasonable expectation" that close family members often are partially aware of legal matters regarding the parents.

I hope the Florida Supreme Court takes that into consideration.

Well the article did say that she "learned" about the settlement.  There's really no way she could have known unless the dad told her.

Dumb kid...if the dad signed a confidentiality agreement he not did tell people the kid did.
His kid could have seen it on the table and read it he needs a good lawyer.
