The lawsuit, filed this week, alleges that Nicholas Immesberger was over-served at The Woods Jupiter restaurant following a shift in December 2018, before dying in a vehicle crash in his Corvette with a blood alcohol level triple the legal limit.
Nicholas Immesberger worked as a bartender in Woods' restaurant, The Woods, in Jupiter, Florida, which is run by Woods' girlfriend, Erica Herman. 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 auto to drive home".
Immesberger crashed his auto and died. Immesberger crashed on the drive home and passed away with a BAC of.256, more than three times the legal limit.
Per reports from United States media the lawsuit, which was brought forward by the Immesberger family, contends that employees of The Woods were aware that the bartender was a "habitual drunkard" and that friends had asked employees to not serve Immesberger alcohol. According to the lawsuit, filed in a Palm Beach County court on behalf of his parents, he ended his shift at approximately 3 p.m. that day and stayed at the restaurant, "sitting at the bar area", until he headed home. It is unclear if Woods or Herman were at the restaurant on December 10 after they had returned home from a trip to Australia on the night of December 7.
The restaurant's manager is Erica Herman, who is Woods's girlfriend and, according to TMZ, recruited Immesberger to the restaurant.
'We feel bad for him and his entire family.
