Steven Seagal‘s powerhouse attorney, Martin Singer, has filed a document in court that he thinks will once and for all prove the lawsuit against Steven Segal should be settled in arbitration, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
Singer officially filed the confidentiality agreement Kayden Nguyen signed when she was hired by the action star.
Nguyen, 23, is claiming that Seagal, 59, l sexually harassed her and used her as “his sex toy.”
Singer, who has represented Bruce Willis and Jim Carrey, filed the agreement that states if there was going to be any legal issue it “shall be resolved by mandatory binding confidential arbitration to the greatest extent permitted by law.”
The document shows that Kayden and Seagal initialed each page of the agreement, as well as formally signing the last page of the document.
Singer successfully had the proceedings brought to a halt last week and a motion will be heard at the end of May at which time it will be determined if the case will be sent to arbitration.
Kayden’s lawyer, William Waldo, fired off a letter to Singer that reads “please tell Steven Seagal two things. First, the cheap shot threats that might have intimidated other victims and their lawyers don’t phase me. Save your ink. Second, Ms. Nguyen’s claims are not going away. Five other victims called me yesterday.”
Singer fired off a legal salvo to Kayden’s attorney and said, “It has become abundantly clear that your strategy is to try this case in the media instead of on its merits,” and then goes on to warn Kayden’s attorney that if he doesn’t dismiss the lawsuit and go to arbitration, per the confidentiality agreement, “we will immediately file a motion to compel arbitration and will seek attorney’s fees, costs, and sanctions against your client and your firm in addition to the $50,000 in liquidated damages already due pursuant to the terms of the confidentiality agreement.”
