Erica Herman is asking for clarity on what she can and cannot say, according to documents filed in Martin County Circuit Court in south Florida.
Why it matters
The case is significant as it involves a high-profile sportsman and the use of NDAs in personal relationships. The timing of the case is also notable as it comes a month before Woods returns to Augusta National to play in the Masters.
What the papers say
The Independent and AP News both report on the story, with similar details and quotes from the court documents.
How we got here
The sources do not provide any background on the relationship between Woods and Herman, but the complaint argues that the NDA should be nullified under the 'Speak Out Act', which became federal law in December and prohibits an NDA from being enforced when sexual assault or sexual harassment is involved.
