Tiger Woods loses lawsuit over failing to provide enough autographs

The Miami Herald reports that Tiger Woods lost a lawsuit filed by a company who claimed Woods violated a 2001 licensing agreement by not providing enough autographs and photos.

The civil case played out last week in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court as the six-person jury awarded $668,000 in damages to the plaintiff's company (Gotta Have It Golf Inc.). But interest on that money will raise the total to nearly $1.3 million.

The plaintiff is also trying to recoup more than $1 million in attorney's fees. However, that remains pending with the court.

"This has been a long time coming,” attorney Eric Isicoff said. “The behavior of ETW Corporation has been reprehensible and we are very pleased with the jury’s verdict.”

Woods and his company, ETW, are expected to appeal the decision.
