Thank you and my apologies for the wait.
The confidentiality agreement
states that you shall not provide any information over the contract to anyone else. Now, if this information has become public domain but now through you, then it is not your fault
Of course, the presumption of the other party may be that it was you that exposed the information. But even if so, they would have to prove it by a preponderance of the evidence
. This means that they would literally have to show that it was you that made these statements, and not someone else.
Provided that you deny this, and provided that they cannot prove this except their own opinion which has no effective argumentative value, they have no case.
So anyone can attempt
to make this argument, but it is unlikely that they will be successful.
You may also wish to remind them that you may also counter-sue for frivolous filing and request attorney fees and punitive damages
upon winning the suit - this may deter further threats at litigation
at their behalf.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.IMPORTANT
