Represented by Jacksonville plaintiff's lawyer John M. Phillips (owner of Folio Weekly), Ms. Omarosa Manigualt Newman won her case before an arbitrator.
Three cheers for their First Amendment victory!
I've long been skeptical of arbitration, which USDOL Associate Chief Judge James L. Guill and I exposed in our 1989 American Bar Association Judges' Journal article, "A Rush to Unfairness -- The Downside to Alternative Dispute Resolution." (I have never signed any contracts with an arbitration clause, the surest way to lose your Seventh Amendment right to jury trial, which Justice Rehnquist called "a bulwark against oppression.")
Kudos to John M. Phillips and Ms. Newman for winning against TRUMP in arbitration. Under the U.S. Arbitration Act, the verdict will be upheld: having chosen to require arbitration in his contracts, TRUMP will have no defense when it comes time to make him pay.
Disgraced insurrectionist ex-President DONALD JOHN TRUMP's nondisclosure agreements are beneath contempt, and an affront to our democracy.
As Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan said, "secrecy is for losers, for people who don't understand the value of the information."
