The former White House communications aide filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump on Monday, alleging the commander-in-chief is trying to infringe on his free speech rights by issuing a legal threat over his tell-all book about the administration.
POLITICO previously reported that Trump was incensed by Sims' book, with several current and former White House officials having described the president as "very pissed off" and "really hopping mad" upon reading early excerpts and leaks of its text.
The Trump re-election campaign filed a private arbitration suit against Sims on January 31 over his book allegedly violating a non-disclosure agreement he signed upon joining the 2016 presidential bid. But those agreements are widely seen as likely unenforceable.
But Sims did sign an NDA for his work on the Trump campaign.

Trump's campaign, per the Times, had filed an arbitration claim against Sims earlier this month for allegedly violating the NDA he signed in 2016. He does admit that he signed an NDA for the campaign.
Sims also asserts that Trump appears to have been arbitrarily enforcing nondisclosure agreements.
"The Trump campaign's demand for arbitration is nothing but a subterfuge for the actions of the [federal government]", the suit claimed, according to the Times, and was "undertaken under express authorization and instruction, and certainly with the blessing of, President Trump".
"I wanted to stand up and say that I'm not going to be pushed into a corner, I'm not going to be bullied on this and stand up for myself", Sims said.
In a statement to The Times, Sims' publishing house, St. Martin's Press, expressed its support for the author.
