Tiger Woods, the famous golfer, is no longer the target of a pending legal dispute stemming from the death of a bartender at his Florida restaurant. He reportedly had a blood alcohol level of about 0.28 when he had a fatal accident with his car last December on his way home from work.
Barry Postman, Woods & # 39; s attorney, said in a statement received from Fox News that Nicholas Immesberger's parents' decision to remove Woods from the suit was "clearly appropriate."
"While the situation was tragic, the facts will ultimately show that the cause of Immesberger's car accident was the many decisions Immersberger had made on the night he died," the statement says.
The lawsuit was filed in Palm Beach County Last month, Immesberger, a bartender at The Woods, Jupiter, Florida, was reported to have been overhauled for about three hours before the crash after his shift at the restaurant ended.
Woods is an investor in the restaurant. His girlfriend, Erica Herman, the manager, is still named in the suit, along with the restaurant, the Washington Post reported.
The extended suit claims that Herman recruited Immesberger as a bartender, although he knew he was an alcoholic. It is alleged that restaurant staff, managers and owners Immersberger drove for a high alcohol consumption.
The original litigation alleged: "Tiger knew or should have known that Immesberger was habitually dependent on the consumption of one or more alcoholic beverages and / or was a habitual drunk. "
The amended lawsuit filed by parents last week does not name Woods anymore.
