Herman claimed a quick split in a separate file and is suing for the right to seek damages for the final five years of a purported oral tenancy agreement.
The NDA specifies that "any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising between us of any sort or character. It was signed on August 9, 2017, according to court documents.
Herman, meanwhile, is seeking a judicial decision to learn more about the NDA's enforceability as well as her obligations and perhaps those of those close to her with reference to her relationship with Woods.
According to Herman's complaint, she is "not certain if she may reveal, among other things, facts giving rise to numerous legal rights she feels she has.
Herman cites the Speak Out Act, which forbids NDAs signed before "a dispute arises concerning sexual assault or sexual harassment in violation of federal, tribal, or state law," and which became a law in December 2022.
Although Herman has not expressly accused Woods of sexual assault, the civil cover sheet submitted by her attorney Benjamin Hodas indicates that allegations of sexual abuse are part of the complaint.
