Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend files for appeal, refuses to quit case

Erica Herman is not giving up her fight against Tiger Woods.

After her lawsuit against the famed golfer was rejected by a Florida state judge in May, she asked the court to reconsider but got denied by the same judge on June 2.

And now she’s filing an appeal, prolonging a case that has accused Woods of sexual harassment and revealed details of her messy breakup with Woods in October.

Herman, Woods’ ex-girlfriend, filed a notice of appeal Friday that states she is taking her case to the Fourth District Court of Appeal in Florida, according to court records obtained by USA TODAY Sports. Her lawsuit seeks to release her from the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that she allegedly signed with Woods in 2017.

Why is she doing this?

Her attorney, Benjamin Hodas, disputes the validity of the NDA, which required her to keep her private life Woods confidential. The disputed NDA also required her to resolve any disputes between the two former lovers in private arbitration proceedings instead of public court.
