  • CAIR Drops Lawsuit Against Whistleblower (Its: sexual discrimination & harassment)

    Ipt ^ | Jan 10, 2022
    A former employee who alleged rampant sexual discrimination and harassment inside the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was using “disturbingly false allegations” in a “systemic and continuous internet smear campaign” to get people to stop donating to, or working with the organization, CAIR said in a lawsuit filed last spring. Lori Saroya’s “public lies are damaging CAIR and the American Muslim community in ways that are significant and long lasting,” CAIR’s lawsuit claimed. But CAIR may have seen that damage as less harmful than a discovery process which could expose organizational secrets. CAIR abruptly filed a stipulation to dismiss the...

    Federal judge ruled Trump can't enforce non-disclosure agreement he required his campaign aides to sign U.S. District Court Judge Paul Gardephe, an appointee of President George W. Bush, said the language was too broad and unenforceable 'The non-disclosure provision is thus much broader than what the Campaign asserts is necessary to protect its legitimate interests, and, therefore, is not reasonable,' he ruled Issue came about when Jessica Denson, a Hispanic outreach director for Trump in 2016, accused the campaign of sex discrimination in a separate lawsuit In return, the campaign accused her of violating the non-disclosure

  • Warren, Biden say Bloomberg’s NDA reversal ‘not good enough’

    Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren are unimpressed with Mike Bloomberg’s decision to release three women from their nondisclosure agreement, saying the former New York City mayor needs to do much more. “Just not good enough,” the Massachusetts Senator told reporters Friday. “Michael Bloomberg needs to do a blanket release so that all women who have been muzzled by nondisclosure agreements can step up and tell their side of the story in terms of what Michael Bloomberg has done,” The criticism was swiftly echoed by former VP Biden, a tag team which echoed their joint attack on Bloomberg during the Democratic...

    Mike Bloomberg announced Friday that his company would let three former female employees out of their non-disclosure agreements should they want to make public their stories about working for him. 'Bloomberg LP has identified 3 NDAs signed over the past 30+ years with women to address complaints about comments they said I had made,' the 2020 hopeful tweeted. 'If any of them want to be released from their NDAs, they should contact the company and they'll be given a release.' Going forward, he also announced that his company would no longer use silencing agreements when there are accusations of sexual...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) drafted a document her primary opponent Mike Bloomberg can sign to release his former employees from nondisclosure agreements (NDAs). Warren, who has been calling on Bloomberg to release people who used to work for his company from the secrecy agreements for months, unveiled her document Thursday during a CNN town hall in Nevada. “So I used to teach contract law. And I thought I would make this easy. I wrote up a release and covenant not to sue. And all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it. I'll text it. Sign...
  • CNN’s Van Jones Buries Bloomberg for ‘Disaster’ Debate: ‘Titanic, Meet Iceberg… Tone Deaf on Issue After Issue’

    Right after tonight’s big Democratic debate, there was a general consensus on CNN that it went very badly for Michael Bloomberg. Van Jones put things the most succinctly when he said it was a “disaster” for the former New York mayor: “Bloomberg went in as the titanic — billion-dollar-machine titanic. Titanic, meet iceberg Elizabeth Warren. She took him to task in a way that I’ve never seen in a debate. She took it over, she prosecuted him. But the worst part about it is for me a lot of African-Americans are placing great hope in Bloomberg, despite the stop and...

    fans attending Davidson’s standup at the Sydney Goldstein Theater were asked to sign a lengthy contract that forbade them from tweeting or instagramming any opinions about the performance. “I didn’t want to sign it because it was basically saying that I wasn’t able to comment on it or have an opinion,” Young told Variety. “The most you could say is ‘no comment.'” After refusing to sign the NDA emailed to her from the venue, Young was given a full refund but there was no additional information as to why this was happening. “I called the box office and wondered if...
  • Hmm: Planned Parenthood Attempted to Put a Gag Order on Reporters Covering Their Event

    Planned Parenthood held a happy hour for media professionals this past week, which is a rather common occurrence, especially in political circles. But, according to VICE's Carter Sherman , the abortion giant wanted reporters to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), something she felt "can stifle reporters’ ability to do their job." According to Sherman, this isn't the first time Planned Parenthood has asked her to sign an NDA. Last year when she covered their “Power of Pink” volunteer training in Detroit, the media registration also included an NDA agreement that barred reporters from sharing "confidential information" with readers. The reporter pushed...

    When Gretchen Carlson heard that NBC News was considering letting people out of their non-disclosure agreements involving alleged sexual misconduct at the network, she couldn’t help but think of the NDA she signed with Fox News before her departure three years ago. “It would be nice to be able to be able to tell my full story,” Carlson said. She’s hoping one day she can. The newswoman says she’s asked to be let out of her NDA and talked to other Fox News employees who left with similar settlements about pressing the network to be let out of the agreements....

    The Justice Department says that President Donald Trump directed illegal payments to buy the silence of two women whose claims of extramarital affairs threatened his presidential campaign, the first time prosecutors have connected Trump to a federal crime. In a court filing, prosecutors said former Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen arranged the secret payments at the height of the 2016 campaign “in coordination with and at the direction of” Trump. Cohen has previously said Trump was involved in the hush-money scheme, but court documents filed ahead of Cohen’s sentencing made clear prosecutors believe Cohen’s claim. The filing stopped short...

    Donald Trump's presidential campaign on Tuesday filed a legal action against former senior White House advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman, alleging she breached a nondisclosure agreement. Trump's 2020 re-election campaign filed the arbitration with the American Arbitration Association in New York City, according to a Trump campaign official. She is accused of violating a 2016 confidentiality agreement she signed with that campaign, the official said. Manigault Newman did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment on the Trump campaign's legal action. This is breaking news. Please check back for updates.

    President Trump’s campaign organization Tuesday has filed for arbitration against friend-turned-enemy Omarosa Manigault Newman, claiming that she broke a 2016 nondisclosure contract by disparaging the president in her new book and revealing private talks from the ultra-secret White House Situation Room. According to a sample of the agreement provided to Secrets, she was required to keep proprietary information about the president, his companies or his family confidential and to never “disparage” the Trump family “during the term of your service and at all times thereafter.” In a statement, a campaign official said, “Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. has filed...

    In an unusual move, FBI agents working the Hillary Clinton email case had to sign a special form reminding them not to blab about the probe to anyone unless called to testify. Sources said they had never heard of the “Case Briefing Acknowledgment” form being used before, although all agents must initially sign nondisclosure agreements to obtain security clearance. “This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others,” said one retired FBI chief. An FBI agent currently on the job admitted, “I have never heard of such a form. Sounds strange.” Meanwhile, FBI agents expressed...

Though the adult film star previously denied the affair, she’s now arguing that she should be released from the agreement and be free to speak publicly of her former relationship with Trump as the president did not sign the document. Cohen has admitted to paying Daniels $130,000. Trump’s lawyers are threatening to make her pay $1 million every time she violates the nondisclosure agreement. The White House has denied any affair occurred. “He knows I’m telling the truth,” Daniels said of the president.

    The directive for the Justice Department to lift a "gag order" on a former FBI informant involved in a high-profile Russia bribery case came from President Trump himself, a source told Fox News. On Wednesday night, the DOJ announced it had cleared the individual to speak to Congress about Moscow’s Obama-era uranium deals in the U.S. market and other schemes. A source said the order to release the confidential informant came directly from Trump -- though who actually made the final call is unclear. One well-placed source familiar with the decision-making process pushed back, saying the decision was made entirely...
