Nondisclosure Agreements

Eddy Curry is getting sued a second time for what he said about the first lawsuit. I’m Amy E. Feldman.

In an article called “The Truth Was Way Worse” published on the Player’s Tribune Website, Eddy Curry, former center for the New York Knicks revealed he had faced a lawsuit brought by his former limo driver who accused him of sexual harassment and unpaid wages which he told the Player’s Tribune he settled for $300,000.

The disclosure of that information violated the terms of the confidentiality agreement in the settlement of the lawsuit, and has now led to the filing of a second lawsuit by the same limo driver. In a statement about lawsuit number 2, Curry said “The Players’ Tribune asked the questions, I answered.” Yeah, so that’s not a defense.

In a nondisclosure agreement, the parties agree to keep information confidential, and they are in most contexts, enforceable. So you can’t bring up information you said you wouldn’t talk about even if someone asks you a question about it, or you’ll hand them the slam dunk in court.
