A 24-year-old bartender at the golfer's popular restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, was killed in a drunk driving accident last December. The suit also claims they "ignored Immesberger's disease, they fueled it by over-serving him alcohol to the point of severe intoxication and then sending him out to his vehicle to drive home".

"This is a tragedy because someone who had a problem was not taken care of, and instead, The Woods (restaurant), Tiger and Erica chose to fuel that addiction", Kuvin said.

It also claims that the restaurant's owners, management and employees were all aware of Immesberger's alcoholism but ignored his "disease" when they over-served him drinks.

"We're all very sad that Nick passed away", Woods said.

Nicholas Immesberger had a blood alcohol reading of.256, more than three times the legal limit in Florida, according to the suit filed in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Goldenfarb acknowledged that neither Herman nor Woods was present the day of Immesberger's death, but he claims they are liable under state law because they own and manage the bar.

Ochoa-Lopez's body was found in a trash bin near the home where police believe she was killed, according to WGN television. Later that day, her family got a call saying that she hadn't shown up to pick up her 3-year-old son from day care.

The lawsuit, brought by Immesberger's parents, said he finished his bartending shift at 3 p.m. and then sat at the bar drinking for several hours. "It was a bad, awful night", Woods said according to TMZ. His family alleges that Woods and Herman were aware or "reasonably should have known" of their bartender's tendency to over-consume alcohol as a "habitual drunkard".

A separate report from ESPN, however, suggests Immesberger's family also believes The Woods Jupiter "destroyed video evidence of the employee drinking at the bar for three hours - to the point of severe intoxication - prior to his fatal crash in December".

Woods is scheduled to play this weekend in the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black, his first tournament since winning his fifth Masters title in April. The complaint says that on "numerous occasions" Immesberger was given so much alcohol that "he was unable to function properly" and had to be driven home.

Immesberger's parents sued Woods directly claiming he "was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over serving its employees/customers", according to the report. It seeks more than $15 000.

Tuesday, Woods was asked about the case during his pre-PGA Championship news conference.
