Age discrimination lawsuit
In 2014, news outlets in North America and Europe reported that 69 year old Patrick Snay, a former headmaster for the Miami, Florida location had been awarded a settlement of $80,000 in regards to an age discrimination complaint he had brought against the institution when his 2010-11 contract was not renewed. Snay's daughter, Boston College student Dana Snay, posted about the settlement on social media. The post, in which Snay's daughter wrote that her mother and father had won the case against the school, that the school was paying for her vacation to Europe, and told the school to "Suck it," was used as evidence that the Snays had violated the non-disclosure agreement with Gulliver Preparatory; courts ultimately ruled in the school's favor.
