Tiger Woods, girlfriend named in wrongful death suit

  • Both Tiger Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman, were named in the lawsuit

According to a new lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County, the pro golfer is being sued in a wrongful death lawsuit for allegedly allowing an employee of his Jupiter, Florida, restaurant, The Woods, to get behind the wheel after drinking on Dec 10, 2018.

The wrongful loss of life lawsuit filed Monday says Nicholas F. Immesberger used to be served wrong quantities of alcohol sooner than the December 10 automobile crash.

Attorney Craig Goldenfarb listed Herman as the general manager of the bar and noted she "set the tone for the culture in that bar".

The lawsuit alleges that Immesberger continued to be served alcohol despite being visibly inebriated and that staff didn't object when they became aware that he was intending to drive home.

Speaking at a PGA press conference in Bethpage, New York, on Tuesday, Woods addressed the lawsuit. "A awful ending and just we feel bad for him and his entire family". His parents claim that his shift ended at 3 p.m. but that he remained "sitting at the bar" area, drinking until he left to go home with a blood-alcohol level more than three times the state's legal limit. The family claims that Immesberger was overserved at the golfer's establishment before his auto overturned and killed him, and their lawyer alleges video of the victim drinking that day was "destroyed" by the establishment. 'It was a bad, awful night, a bad ending'. His family alleges that Woods and Herman were aware or "reasonably should have known" of their bartender's tendency to over-consume alcohol as a "habitual drunkard".

Immesberger lost control of his vehicle that evening while driving home and crashed, dying in the accident, according to the report, which also said Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256, more than three times the legal limit. He later drove back home and on his way lost control of his vehicle.

The suit is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

Woods is now preparing to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black in NY.

"Just like he ignored his own problem for years, he and his girlfriend chose to ignore this problem that his own employee had", attorney Spencer Kulvin said of Woods and Herman.
