Tiger Woods has said he is not responsible for the death of a 24-year-old bartender who died in a drunk-driving accident after allegedly being 'over-served alcohol' at a Florida restaurant.

A lawsuit obtained by DailyMail.com alleges that Woods contributed to the death of Nicholas Immesberger, 24, who is said to have been over-served following a shift at The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Florida.

Suit - Immesberger - Alcohol - Point - Intoxication

The motion also notes that Woods wasn't even at the restaurant on the day of Immesberger's death.

'In sum, Mr. Woods should have not been named as a defendant,' the document reads.

Woods - Girlfriend - Motion - Lawsuit - Manager

Woods' girlfriend also filed a similar motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which contends that she is the general manager of the restaurant and therefore has 'individual liability'.
