Tiger Woods’ ex drops $30 million lawsuit against estate pending NDA appeal

Erica Herman dropped her $30 million lawsuit against Tiger Woods’ estate pending an appeal of a judge’s order tossing out a separate lawsuit she filed to void an NDA she signed in 2017.

The NDA’s appeal was still pending.

According to court records, the case against the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust in Martin County, Florida, was listed as closed.

“Plaintiff, Erica Herman, by and through her undersigned attorney, 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,” the court document reads.

Herman’s lawsuit alleges that Woods violated the Landlord Tenant Act when they split up, saying he allegedly tricked her into leaving their Jupiter Island home and then foreclosed on it. It was the first time anyone publicly broke up with Woods and Herman.

Herman claimed that she and Woods entered into an oral tenancy agreement that gave her the right to live in the home and that she had five years left on the oral lease when they separated.

Before the dismissal, Herman filed another appeal asking the judge to void the NDA on the grounds that Woods had sexually harassed her. The judge previously ruled that the sexual misconduct claims were “vague and threadbare.”

“Herman has had an opportunity to provide a factual explanation for any claims of sexual assault or sexual harassment, however, he has not done so,” Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger wrote in an 11-page opinion in May.

Herman started working at Wood’s Restaurant in 2014 and the two started dating in 2017.
