A former Trump campaign staffer has lost her non-disclosure battle she was embroiled in with the Trump campaign.

According to The Hill:

Jessica Denson, an actress who worked for the campaign, was required to pay it $52,230 for breaching the agreement, Bloomberg News reported. 

She sued in federal court to void the NDA in 2016 so she could carry out a separate suit alleging superiors harassed and defamed her. 

Denson sued for $25 million in damages in 2017 over claims including the alleged harassment. The Trump campaign made a $1.5 million arbitration claim, saying she had gone against the NDA. 

Federal Judge Jesse Furman ruled in August that the case would be arbitrated, and the arbitrator gave the campaign $49,508 plus interest. This was held up in state court in Manhattan. Furman on Tuesday upheld the state court decision despite a request from Denson to toss it. 

Denson wanted all NDAs from the campaign invalidated because she felt it kept employees from alerting workplace misconduct.
