Tiger Woods has been ruled out as a defendant in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against him.
We reported that the family of a former employee at Tiger’s Florida restaurant filed a lawsuit against The Woods after Nicholas Immesberger died in a DUI crash last year.
The original lawsuit, the state of Nicholas claimed he stayed after a shift on December 10, 2018, and was served alcohol to the point of “severe intoxication,” and was allowed to drive his own vehicle.
He later crashed and died, and the family claimed Tiger and his girlfriend, Erica Herman, knew Nicholas on a personal level and understood his alcohol problem, ultimately stating they should have never allowed him to be served alcohol.
Barry Postman, Tiger’s attorney, says Nicholas’ family are voluntarily dismissing Tiger’s name from the lawsuit, confirming, “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.
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.”
Tiger was asked about the lawsuit earlier this month, to which he replied, “We’re all very sad that Nick passed away. It was a terrible night, a terrible ending, and just — we feel bad for him and his entire family. It’s very sad.”
