Tiger Woods’ ex Erica Herman asks court to reconsider sending $30m lawsuit to private arbitration as bitter row to invalidate NDA on sexual harassment claim rumbles on

Erica Herman, the ex-girlfriend of Tiger Woods, has filed a request with a state court in Florida to reconsider the ruling that sent her dispute with the golfer to a private arbitration.

The 38-year-old Herman wants the case to be held at a public court but last month a judge rejected that case. According to USA Today, an attorney for Herman filed the new request Wednesday.

In May, judge Elizabeth Metzger rejected Herman’s attempt to dismiss the non-disclosure agreement with ex-boyfriend Woods and ordered the former couple to settle lawsuits seeking millions in damages through arbitration.

The Florida judge said claims of sexual harassment were not supported by documents requested by the circuit court.

Metzger denied the motion from Herman to void the NDA with Woods that originated in 2017, per the 11-page document. Herman’s attorney originally claimed no NDA was signed, then said in a hearing earlier this month there was a signed agreement but it didn’t match the version presented in court.

Herman has also previously accused Woods of sexual harassment. They broke up in October and Herman claimed Woods tricked her into leaving the mansion they lived together at in Florida.

Herman has claimed over $30million in damages in a lawsuit against Woods.

‘Herman had the opportunity to provide factual specificity for any claim relating to sexual assault or sexual harassment, however, she has not done so,’ Metzger wrote in May.

Herman met Woods as the manager of his Palm Beach restaurant and argued any NDA would cover only her work role and relationship with Woods, the owner.

Woods and his trust were both named in the suit from Herman seeking $30 million. The trust was included because it owns Woods’ mansion in Florida, per court documents.
