Tracy Morgan Settles Suit With Wal-Mart Over Fatal Crash

Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Wal-Mart over a highway crash that killed one man and left Morgan and two friends seriously injured. A filing in federal court in Newark on Wednesday referred to a confidential settlement reached by the two sides. Morgan's lawyer, Benedict Morelli, said he and Walmart worked diligently to reach the settlement for the plaintiffs and their families. "Walmart took full responsibility for the accident, which we greatly appreciate," he said in a statement. A Wal-Mart 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 and is still recovering.
