When to Disclose Your Non-Disclosure Agreement
Professor of Law Gregory Germain spoke with Huffington Post about non-disclosure agreements, especially after the use of these contracts between President Trump and women who claimed to have had affairs with him before he was president. One woman, Stephanie Clifford (also known as Stormy Daniels) is talking about her relationship with the president despite the NDA she signed. However, she claims it is invalid because Trump never signed it.
“It’s a weird document,” said Germain, noting the pseudonyms and a few other factors that are out of the ordinary about the deal. He also said that Cohen’s explanation for the deal ― he paid Clifford $130,000 with his own money and claims that Trump was unaware ― makes no sense.
“The lawyer saying he’s acting on Trump’s behalf but didn’t tell him,” Germain said. “I don’t know where he thinks that’s going.”
