Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Woods is facing a wrongful death lawsuit alongside his Jupiter, Florida, restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, and the establishment's manager, Erica Herman, whom Tiger has been dating since 2017. The parents of Nicholas F. Immesberger, who died at age 24 in a December 2018 drunk-driving crash while employed as a bartender at The Woods Jupiter, filed the suit Monday alleging that Woods, Herman and other "employees, management and owners" of the restaurant "over-served a young man they knew was suffering with the disease of alcoholism."

Immesberger had a blood-alcohol level of .256, nearly three times the legal limit of .08, at the time of his death, per CBS News. He was allegedly permitted to drive home following three hours of drinking at The Woods after his shift at the restaurant concluded.

Depends if Florida allows these lawsuits.

Kansas doesn't allow them. Meaning lawsuits against establishments for overserving someone.

Him being an employee rather than a customer might muddy those waters a bit.

"Him being an employee rather than a customer might muddy those waters a bit."

Yeah, a bit...like 100%.

Especially when--like every other bartender in the world--he was the one serving himself.

Agreed. This is different.

According to the LA Times article I saw this morning, the employee was being served after his shift was over and was therefore considered a patron.

Most bars that I worked at prohibited employees from being served alcohol off shift as patrons for this very reason.

You're exactly right.

I was a bartender for about a decade, and have certainly spent my share of time in bars/grills, and I've never seen a bartender past his shift cut off.
