Erica Herman Drops $30M Tenancy Lawsuit Against Tiger Woods

It looks like Erica Herman won’t be kicking back in Tiger Woods‘ mansion anytime soon. According to the New York Post, Herman has dropped her $30 million lawsuit against the golf champ and his estate.

The 39-year-old filed the lawsuit in 2022, claiming Tiger and his estate managers tricked her out of living in his Florida home. Erica Herman argued they had an “oral tenancy agreement” guaranteeing her five years living in Tiger’s home following their breakup.

Instead, she says Tiger and his Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust employees conspired to give her the boot. The suit claimed his employees informed her of a solo “short vacation.” After arriving at the airport, Erica alleges employees told her the Relationship was over. They allegedly introduced a mediating proposal and informed her $40,000 of her cash was “misappropriated.” Her lawsuit claimed Tiger Woods violated the Landlord Tenant Act.

New York Post reports that an August hearing for the lawsuit was scheduled. However, a June 29 court document reportedly shows it was canceled due to Erica’s dismissal.

Erica Herman Awaiting Appeal Results On Lawsuit About NDA With Woods

But the dismissed tenancy lawsuit isn’t the end of Tiger Woods’ legal battles with Erica Herman. In fact, the dismissal hangs on the results of a second appeal filed in a separate lawsuit.

“The Plaintiff, ERICA HERMAN, by and through her undersigned counsel, hereby dismisses without prejudice her Complaint, filed on October 26, 2022, pending resolution of the appeal in Herman v. Woods and determination of whether her claims are subject to arbitration.”

In March, Erica Herman filed court docs to nullify a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) she allegedly signed in 2017.

By May, an additional filing accused Tiger of sexually harassing Herman. The filing claimed Woods sexually pursued Erica while she was working at his restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, in South Florida. Erica Herman claimed Tiger Woods asked her to sign the NDA or be fired from his establishment.

However, Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger ruled that Herman must abide by the NDA due to the “vague and threadbare” allegations. The judge added, “Herman has had the opportunity [to] provide factual specificity for any claim relating to sexual assault or sexual harassment. However, she has not done so.” 

Shortly before filing the dismissal of the $30M suit, Erica Herman filed a second appeal to get the NDA nullified on the basis of being allegedly sexually harassed. This means that the case is still pending.
