The motion was made in Martin County Circuit Court of the 19th Judicial Circuit by Erica Herman, who resided with the 15-time major champion at his Florida mansion until late 2022.
Court documents made public on Wednesday indicated that Tiger Woods’s ex-girlfriend has filed a lawsuit in an effort to get out from under a nondisclosure deal she claims the golf legend forced her to sign at the beginning of their relationship in 2017. The motion was made in the Circuit Court of the 19th Judicial Circuit in Martin County, Florida by Erica Herman, who resided with the 15-time major champion there until late 2022. Herman’s lawyers claim that the Speak Out Act, a piece of US federal legislation, renders the NDA she was forced to sign “invalid and unenforceable,” according to court documents obtained by AFP.
The law, which went into effect last year in the aftermath of the MeToo movement, renders nondisclosure agreements unenforceable in cases involving sexual assault and harassment.
Herman’s case filings do not go into further detail, and there are no specific allegations against Woods.
However, in response to a question on the court filing that reads, “Does this case involve allegations of sexual abuse?” Herman’s lawyers have checked the “Yes” box.
Herman’s request to waive her NDA agreement is an extension of a legal dispute with Woods that began in October but has largely gone unreported in the US media.
Herman’s lawyers have sued the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, the legal entity that owns Woods’ Florida home, in court filings obtained by AFP.
According to Herman’s lawsuit, “agents” for Woods duped her into leaving the mansion last year by telling her to pack for a vacation.
