Title: Erica Herman Drops $30M Lawsuit Against Tiger Woods’ Estate: Landlord Tennant Act Claimed
In a surprising turn of events, Erica Herman, former partner of golf legend Tiger Woods, has decided to drop her $30 million lawsuit against Woods’ estate. The lawsuit, which aimed to nullify a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) signed in 2017, was based on allegations that Woods violated the Landlord Tenant Act by deceitfully removing her from the property.
Herman claimed that Woods deceived her by promising a trip together, but upon leaving the property, he reportedly changed the locks, leaving her locked out. Adding to her argument, she contended that they had an “oral tenancy agreement” in place, which gave her the right to continue living in the house even if their romantic relationship ended.
Scheduled for August, the hearing to review the case was abruptly canceled after Herman withdrew her lawsuit. However, prior to dismissing the suit, she filed a second appeal seeking to have the NDA thrown out. A Florida judge, in an interim decision, referred to the NDA as “vague and threadbare” and recommended private arbitration.
Herman’s argument centered around her previous work relationship with Woods and alleged sexual advancements made by the golf icon, suggesting that these factors warranted her release from the NDA. However, it remains unclear whether the dismissal was due to lack of evidence or the result of a possible out-of-court settlement.
The case has attracted significant attention due to Herman’s high-profile relationship with Woods, which began in 2017. As the general manager of his restaurant, Erica Herman’s connection to the golfing legend was initially professional but eventually evolved into a romantic involvement.
With the sudden dismissal of the lawsuit, speculation is swirling regarding the true motive behind Herman’s decision. While some sources suggest a possible confidential resolution was reached outside the courtroom, others speculate the lack of compelling evidence may have influenced her decision to withdraw the case.
For now, the dropped lawsuit leaves many questions unanswered and puts an end to what could have been a protracted legal battle between Herman and Woods’ estate. Fans and followers will be left to wonder about the true nature of their relationship and the validity of the disputed NDA.
