Tiger Woods was dropped from a wrongful-death lawsuit, Woods’ lawyers announced on Monday.
The announcement followed a court filing by attorneys for the estate of Nicholas Immesberger, a bartender at The Woods Jupiter who died in a car crash after leaving the restaurant last December.

According to Woods’ attorney, Barry Postman, Woods invests in but does not own the restaurant.
“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,” Postman said in a statement. “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.”
The lawsuit had claimed that Woods contributed to the death of an employee who was in a one-car crash. Immesberger had a blood alcohol level that was more than three times the legal limit, according to the suit, which claimed he was over served at the restaurant before getting in his car to drive home.
Another W for Tiger Woods.
