A federal judge on Tuesday overturned a non-disclosure agreement signed by members of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

Judge Paul Gardef of the US District Court has determined that the wording of the contract, which all members of the 2016 campaign must sign, is very vague and unenforceable under the law. Reported by Politico..

Garderf’s Arbitrage “The provisions are much broader and therefore unreasonable than what the campaign claims is necessary to protect legitimate interests,” he said.

“The vague, broad and undefined terminology of nondisclosure agreements also overburdens it,” the ruling said.

The ruling states that for employees of the campaign, “it is difficult to know if a speech is covered by one of a wide category of restricted information” or “the speech is a non-disclosure clause.”

The decision was made in a case filed by Jessica Denson, the campaign’s Hispanic outreach director. She claimed that the nondisclosure agreement violated her First Amendment rights by preventing him from criticizing Trump “forever.” Insider Omasedik reported..

Denson filed a separate proceeding against the campaign in 2017, alleging sexual harassment and discrimination.

A Summary judgment petition In an NDA proceeding filed in July on behalf of Denson and other campaign staff, the non-slandering agreement was “clearly devised” as a “tool to silence presidential critics.” Has been used repeatedly for purposes. “

Denson to Politico, NDA to I’ve been using playing cards for a long time Many former campaign staff have stopped speaking to silence employees and critics.

“This is a big win, as the NDA’s conditions are severely restricted and have completely curtailed public debates about Trump’s campaign and presidential election, and the truth.”

“NDAs like this are part of the reason why Donald Trump’s candidacy and presidential election ended in the first place.”
