WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) — Tiger Woods has been removed as a defendant in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by the parents of a drunk driver who died in a car accident on December 10, 2018.
Attorneys for the parents of Nicholas Immesberger filed an amended complaint Friday in Palm Beach County court dropping Woods from the suit.
The complaint still targets The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, in which the pro golfer is an investor, and restaurant general manager Erica Herman, who is in a relationship with Woods.
The lawsuit filed in May says Immesberger, who worked at The Woods, was served excessive amounts of alcohol before the crash. It says Herman recruited Immesberger as a bartender there despite knowing he was an alcoholic. It alleges restaurant employees, managers and owners let Immesberger drive after being over-served alcohol.
