Tiger Woods’ Ex-Girlfriend Erica Herman Files Legal Claim To Scrape Non-Disclosure Agreement With Golfer | US News

Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend Erica Herman is seeking to void a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) following a six-year relationship with the pro golfer.

The NDA was signed while Ms. Herman was involved in a personal and professional relationship with Woodsbut she believes it should be cancelled.

Ms Herman’s lawyers are pursuing this under the Sexual Harassment Act 1921, which allows people to limit the scope of non-disclosure agreements in complaints of sexual assault or harassment.

The filing does not make specific allegations against Woods or provide details of information Ms. Herman may want to disclose, but argues that the trust, controlled by Woods, has been “aggressive” in enforcing the NDA.

The complaint comes after Ms Herman brought separate proceedings against Woods, in October, in which she said she owed around $30m (£25m) and was locked out of her home in Martin County, in Florida, which he shared with the golfer.

In support of this, Ms. Herman would have to disclose facts that would put her in violation of the NDA, as the clauses dictate that if there is a dispute between the couple, the parties must first try to resolve it through arbitration (outside the court) .

Ms. Herman’s latest complaint seeks clarification from the court on the validity and enforceability of the non-disclosure agreement.

If the NDA is reversed, Ms. Herman could sue in court and bypass arbitration.

If the NDA is found valid, Ms. Herman asks the court to define whether she can disclose “facts that give rise to various legal claims that she believes she has.”

The complaint also asks the court to determine Ms. Herman’s “freedom to disclose … her experiences” and “photographs and recordings of herself and her family members.”

The court filing said Woods initially performed the NDA because Ms. Herman is a former employee.

She was seen with Woods regularly at the major championships, but was absent from events late last year and the Genesis Invitational, which Woods hosted at the Riviera three weeks ago.

Woods’ manager at Excel Sports Management, Mark Steinberg, did not immediately return for comment.
