Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend Erica Herman has amended her $30 million lawsuit against the legendary golfer.
Herman is now seeking permission from the court to speak publicly about things she claims she learned about Woods before she signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in 2017.
She has already petitioned the court to dismiss the NDA, claiming it is unenforceable under the federal Speak Out Act.
The Federal Speak Out Act is a law that “prohibits the judicial enforceability of a nondisclosure clause or nondisparagement clause agreed to before a dispute arises involving sexual assault or sexual harassment in violation of federal, tribal, or state law.”
Now, according to Herman’s new legal filing, if the judge doesn’t dismiss the NDA, Erica wants a definition of what she is restricted from talking about publicly with regard to Tiger Woods.
In her original lawsuit, she asked if the NDA prohibited her from talking about her own experiences, the experiences of her family members, releasing photos and recordings of herself, and whether it restricted her relatives, who were not under an NDA, from speaking out.
In addition, she wanted the court to rule if the NDA prohibited her from talking about information from sources other than Woods, information on topics that Woods has discussed or otherwise disclosed to other people, and guidance on if she could respond to statements Woods made publicly about her.
In her amended complaint, Herman added additional topics she wants the judge to rule on. She said if the NDA is enforced, she wants the judge to decide if she can reveal information she learned about Woods prior to signing the 2017 or information she learned after the end of her employment with Woods.
On top of all of that, Erica Herman also asked the court if she is allowed to speak about “information obtained after the end of her personal relationship with” Tiger Woods.
Herman claims Woods tricked her into leaving the house to go on a short vacation. Once she arrived at the airport with her luggage, Erica claims agents for Woods told her she had would not be allowed to return to the residence.
She is seeking over $30 million because she claims she had an “oral tenancy agreement” with Woods to live in the house.
Tiger Woods has denied that any such agreement ever existed.
