Jessica Denson, a former supervisor for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, has sued the campaign organization—Donald Trump for President Inc.—seeking to nullify a nondisclosure agreement that has prevented her from speaking about discrimination she says she experienced on the job, Bloomberg reports.
She had earlier filed a discrimination case against Donald Trump for President Inc. in New York state court, but the campaign sought to enforce the confidentiality deal, filing an arbitration claim asserting $1.5 million in damages. Denson’s confidentiality agreement, a copy of which was filed with the lawsuit, prohibits disparagement and disclosure of confidential information about Trump, his company and family members including Eric and Donald Jr., Ivanka, Tiffany and even Barron, the president’s 12-year-old son. Denson sought a judge’s order to declare the NDA unenforceable because it violates public policy and is too vague and too broad.
In her original discrimination suit, Bloomberg reports, Denson said that, after she was promoted, a supervisor made “derogatory and demeaning comments.” She also alleges that the same supervisor directed her co-worker to steal her laptop and files, and accused her of leaking Trump’s tax returns.
Denson is representing herself in this case. Daniels’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, has says he has been approached by a few other women about the possibility of breaking their NDAs, but would not comment on whether or not Denson was one of them.
