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.
