Christensen Shipyards have been ordered to cease using Tiger Woods' name and photograph in connection with their luxury yachts. The ruling, handed down by U.S. District Judge William Zloch, upholds the original terms of sale.
The suit claims $75,000 in initial damages. The lawsuit claims that Woods' star status could bring damages to a mind boggling $50 million according to the terms of the lawsuit. Christensen Shipyards stood to gain financially using Woods' name and chose to use Woods as advertising leverage against the explicit language of the contract.
