Erica Herman, ex-girlfriend of Tiger Woods, has filed a lawsuit against him requesting to be released from her non-disclosure agreement (NDA) citing a law that allows NDAs to be invalidated in cases of sexual assault.

According to legal documents, Herman, 38, is seeking to legally nullify the NDA that she signed back in August 2017 when she and Woods, 47, began their relationship.
Herman is arguing that the NDA should be voided under the Speak Out Act, which is a law designed to protect victims of sexual harassment or assault. The documents suggest that the couple had a long-standing relationship that was both professional and personal. However, Herman claims that she is uncertain about what other information regarding her life she is permitted to disclose and to whom she may disclose it.
Erica Herman Wants NDA Nullified
Herman hasn’t made any accusations against Woods, according to People.
Herman, who is a former restaurant manager, was romantically linked to Woods after being seen with him at the Presidents Cup in New Jersey in September 2017. During the tournament, Herman wore a badge that was reserved for players’ girlfriends and wives.
Herman has been a regular at the course during Woods’ matches over the years, but the couple generally kept a low profile during their time together. The former couple was rarely seen out in public at non-golf events, but they did attend the 2022 US Open together to support tennis star Serena Williams from the stands.
“No one has signed any paperwork,” a source told PEOPLE back in 2018 about the couple. “It’s not like they’re pledging their lives to each other. But she’s really nice and Tiger likes her.” “Tiger doesn’t like to be alone,” the source added. “But he doesn’t like to settle. Not anymore. So when he’s with someone, he really needs to be into her.”
Before Herman, Woods was married to Elin Nordegren for six years. They divorced in August 2010 after Woods had confessed to having several affairs and underwent a 45-day therapy program.
