You can expect to be the target of defamation lawsuits. These will have monetary damage claims, but there are two other goals: shutting you up, and as a tool to access information about you and your informants….
NXIVM has an extra tool to use against informants who have ever been ESP/NXIVM student. They were required to sign non-disclosure agreements about the course material, and NXIVM lawyers try to expand that to any statements about NXIVM at all. So even true statements are actionable. (Possibly by now the NDA more explicitly goes beyond the course material).
And there is a clever clause in the NDA that makes the student liable for NXIVM’s legal fees if NXIVM wins. NXIVM has the resources (the Bronfman girls) to run up gigantic legal bills without feeling the pain. Even if the actual provable damages to NXIVM are minimal, the legal bills are enough to bankrupt nearly anyone. So NXIVM can coerce the student into into accepting an injunction of silence, rather than going to court where they risk losing the case and being bankrupted. (NXIVM also loves to bring legal actions to block bankruptcy!)
NXIVM may be able to use a defamation suit as an excuse to subpoena your email accounts and computers. They will want to find out the identities of your informants so they can attack them….
You should also expect your computer systems to be hacked. Recall that they installed a keystroke logger on Edgar Bronfman’s computer through an email attachment. You should expect that some of the emails you have received or will receive are from active NXIVM members, with attachments to take over your computer. They may also try to remotely take over your computers through means other than emails. They have the resources to hire very talented hackers….
