Tiger’s name removes from wrongful death car accident lawsuit.
Tiger Woods has reportedly been removed from the filed by the family of a former employee at Woods’ Florida restaurant.
According to reports, the estate of Nicholas Immesberger sued Tiger and his girlfriend, Erica Herman, who operates as the restaurant’s general manager, claiming Nicholas was overserved alcohol at the restaurant in the hours before his fatal crash.
The suit originally claimed that Nicholas stayed after a bartending shift at the restaurant on December 10, 2018, and was served to the point of “severe intoxication” before getting in his car and driving away, according to TMZ. Furthermore, the family said Tiger and Erica knew Nicholas had an alcohol problem and shouldn’t have allowed him to be served in the first place.
However, Tiger’s attorney, Barry Postman, says the family has now decided to voluntarily remove Woods’ name from the lawsuit.
Per TMZ Sports:
“The decision was clearly appropriate and reflected the fact that Mr. Woods should not have been included in the lawsuit in the first place because he had nothing to do with Mr. Immesberger’s death,” Postman said in a statement.
“While the situation was tragic, the facts will ultimately show that the cause of Mr. Immesberger’s car accident were the many decisions made by Mr. Immesberger on the night of his passing.”
