In an action for breach of contract, summary judgment for defendant on grounds that a confidentiality provision was void as against public policy is reversed where, although the County had a duty to disclose the severance agreement itself, it had no duty to disclose the circumstances that gave rise to the severance agreement, and any First Amendment right to make the disclosures was waived by the confidentiality provision.
