    The lawyers are going after Tiger because he has deep pockets.
    There is no proof that he is personally responsible for allowing a highly intoxicated individual get behind the wheel. Where was the bartender's direct boss?
    Was Tiger actually present at the time?
    This will go nowhere in the end and some judge will end up ruling that those pressing the suit must cover court costs.

    My father owned a motel and hired the father of a famous baseball player to manage the motel. Sure enough, here came a lawsuit naming the motel, the manager, and the famous baseball player. The lawyer was banking on the famous ballplayer coming through. After dragging it out for three years my father's attorney asked that the famous ballplayer be dropped from the lawsuit since he had zero interest in the business. The plaintiff's lawyer went berserk screaming, "Why didn't you tell me that three years ago?" The judge and everyone in the courtroom laughed at the shyster.

    Sargentdiaz, please remember that the judge, the plaintiff's lawyer, and the defendant's lawyer are all lawyers and they support each other. It is extremely rare for a judge to assign the attorney's fees to the losing party. If that were routine then you'd see a dramatic drop in lawsuits.

    When I was working we simply quit settling out of court. Some families knew they could sue us every two years and the insurance company would settle for $30,000 to avoid the expense and risk of court. That would be an easy $10 to $15 thousand for the attorney. When we quit settling on bogus lawsuits the lawyers quit taking the cases.

    The U.S. needs tort reform but I think that's something you'll never see politicians pursuing. Too many are attorneys or are involved in tort fraud.
