Former Trump Campaign Staffer Loses Case Over Non-Disclosure

Why would Trump need his campaign staff to sign an NDA if they don't do anything wrong? Declare bankruptcy? That's what trump related businesses appear to do and they call it “protection”? Trump keeps lawyers in business.

(Bloomberg) — Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was awarded $52,230 in a dispute with a former campaign staffer over her breach of a non-disclosure agreement.

Jessica Denson, a Los Angeles-based actress who worked on Trump’s campaign in August 2016, sued in federal court to void her NDA in order to pursue a separate state lawsuit in which she claims she was harassed and defamed by her superiors.

Denson sued in state court in November 2017 seeking $25 million in damages for the alleged harassment and defamation. The Trump campaign then made a $1.5 million arbitration claim, saying Denson had breached the confidentiality and non-disparagement obligations of the NDA.

In August, U.S. District Judge Jesse M. Furman ruled the case would be arbitrated, as required by the agreement. The arbitrator awarded the campaign $49,508 plus interest, which was then confirmed by a state-court judge in Manhattan. Furman ruled Tuesday that the decision of the state court is conclusive, declining Denson’s request that he throw it out.
