Tracy Morgan Settles Lawsuit With Walmart Over Fatal Crash
Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Walmart over a New Jersey highway crash that killed one man and left Morgan and two friends seriously injured.
A filing in federal court in Newark on Wednesday (May 27) refers to a confidential settlement reached by the two sides.
Morgan's lawyer hasn't responded to a message seeking comment.
Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart Stores Inc. calls it an "amicable settlement." Details haven't been disclosed.
A Walmart truck slammed into the back of a limo van carrying Morgan and the others back from a show in Delaware last June. Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed. Morgan suffered head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs.
Walmart reached a settlement with McNair's two children in January.
The driver of the truck faces charges in state court.
