Report: Jury orders Woods' company to pay up

A jury found that Tiger Woods' company is liable for $668,000 in a civil lawsuit in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, just days after he played in the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship in nearby Doral (shown here).

A jury ordered Tiger Woods' company, ETW, to pay $668,000 to a company that alleged breach of a licensing agreement, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

Gotta Have It Golf Inc. and Bruce Matthews of South Miami said in a civil lawsuit that a specified number of photos and autographs were not provided to meet the terms of the 2001 agreement. A Miami-Dade County Circuit Court jury found ETW liable for deceptive and unfair trade practices.

Eric Isicoff, an attorney for Matthews, told the Herald that interest would increase that judgment to about $1.3 million; Matthews continues to seek more than $1 million in attorney fees in an effort still taking place in court.

Woods testified Monday after shooting 78 in the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship a day earlier; his company is expected to appeal, the Herald reported.
