TIGER WOODS & RORY MCILROY SUBPOENAED TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH ABOUT PGA TOUR PLAYERS' MEETING
PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan Also to Be Deposed Under Oath
(Palm Beach Florida, August 24, 2022). Today, Larry Klayman, Esq., the class action lead plaintiff in a case styled Klayman et. al v. PGA Tour et. al, Civil Action No. Klayman v. PGA Tour et. al 50-2022-CA-006587 (15th Judicial Circuit, Palm Beach County), gave notice of his intent on behalf of himself and other members of the putative class to subpoena for deposition Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy with regard to their participation in a recent players' meeting at Wilmington Country Club during the BMW Open leading up to the finals of the Fedex Cup this week in Atlanta, Georgia.
It is believed that discussions occurred which are alleged in the above complaint to be anticompetitive and violative of the antitrust laws vis a vis the LIV Golf Tour and its players.
Woods is noticed for deposition on September 21, 2022, and McIlroy for September 22, 2022, in their hometown of Jupiter, Florida, after requests for production are due to be served by the defendants. These document requests require production of the documents and audio or visual recordings of this meeting, among other relevant information to the class action lawsuit. The documents will thus be used at Wood's and McIlroy's depositions. PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan's deposition will follow and has been noticed for September 27, 2022, in Jupiter as well.
The pleadings concerning this important class action case can be viewed at www.freedomwatchusa.org and on the court's website, as they all have been filed and are available to the public.
Larry Klayman, Esq. had this to say upon giving notice to defendants through their counsel of his and members of the class's intent to depose Woods, McIlroy and Monahan:
"This is not a personal 'thing' against Woods, McIlroy and Monahan. It's about getting information about what occurred at the players' meeting and generally with regard to allegations in our complaint that the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and their commissioners Jay Monahan and Keith Pelley, are allegedly colluding in restraint of trade and the antitrust laws to harm the LIV Golf Tour and its players.
"Just today, the PGA Tour announced changes in its tournaments by again upping winning purses with guaranteed attendance payments for top players, attempting to emulate LIV Golf, while continuing to allegedly harm LIV and its players by, among other alleged anticompetitive acts, working to deny them world ranking points to compete in major tournaments such as the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA championships. One can perhaps now call the new PGA Tour 'LIV Light.'
"We look forward to Woods, McIlroy and Monahan telling the truth, with sworn testimony, under oath.
"Their testimony is not just relevant but also crucial."
