Rachel Uchitel's Legal History: 9/11 Plaintiff and NY Divorcée

Rachel Uchitel, the woman whom media reports allege may be linked to golf star Tiger Woods, has some litigation history.

Uchitel is listed as a plaintiff in a multi-trillion dollar federal lawsuit stemming from the 9/11 terrorist attacks. On September 11, 2001, her fiancé James Andrew O'Grady was killed while working when the second hijacked plane struck the World Trade Center's South Tower.  O'Grady was a managing directory at financial advisory firm Sandler O'Neill.

Uchitel was also a defendant in a New York divorce case after her short-lived marriage to Steven Ehrenkranz.

Uchitel was also the sole defendant in a quickie New York lawsuit filed by Buddha Entertainment filed on December 26, 2007 and apparently resolved for undisclosed terms just over two months later on March 3, 2008

In matters regarding media speculation over what, if any, relationship she has or had with Tiger Woods, CNN reported that Uchitel is now represented by L.A. lawyer Gloria Allred.

Tiger Woods' middle-of-the-night car crash may result in some legal charges against the Florida resident.  "The traffic crash remains under investigation and charges are pending," Sgt. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol told Reuters. 

Woods is represented by Orlando attorney Mark Nejame.
