School Sued Over MySpace Photo Response

Be careful how you portray yourself on the Internet. One day you may regret it or, alternatively, possibly make some money with a nice lawsuit.

Stacy Snyder posted a photo entitled "Drunken Pirate" on her MySpace site which showed her at a 2005 Halloween party wearing a pirate hat while drinking from a plastic "Mr. Goodbar" cup. Although Snyder apologized, she learned the day before graduation at Millersville University that she would not be awarded an education degree or teaching certificate. "I dreamed about being a teacher for a long time," said Snyder, 27, who now works as a nanny. So now, she's suing the university. Jane S. Bray, dean of the School of Education, accused Snyder of promoting underage drinking, the suit states. The federal lawsuit seeks at least $75,000 in damages.
