the_woods_jupiter_logoEarlier this year, a wrongful death suit was filed against The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, along with its famous owner, golfer Tiger Woods, and his girlfriend, Erica Herman, who is the general manager of the restaurant.

The parents of Nicholas Immesberger, who was a bartender at the restaurant owned by Woods, died in a December drunk driving accident, had sued Woods and others saying that Immesberger’s death was the result of negligence on the part of The Woods Jupiter restaurant.

In a glimmer of victory for the defense, Tiger has been dropped as a defendant in the wrongful death lawsuit.

“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,” Wood’s attorney, Barry Postman, said in a statement.
Woods’ girlfriend Erica Herman, is still listed as a defendant on the complaint.
The suit claims that after his shift at the restaurant, the 24-year-old Immesberger stayed to drink and that the restaurant served him too much alcohol, knowing he was an alcoholic.
Around three hours later, Immesberger died in a single-car crash.
The suit alleges that by serving Immesberger, even though they knew he attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and had another alcohol-related crash in November, the restaurant was negligent and “caused or contributed” to his death.
Family attorney Spencer Kuvin said in May when the suit was filed that Florida law states that when a business over-serves someone known to be addicted to alcohol, that business is responsible for what occurs.
