Hollywood actor and comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Walmart over a New Jersey highway crash that killed one man and left himself and two friends seriously injured.
The actor in a statement said, “Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families, I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably.“
CEO of Walmart Greg Foran had this to say, “Our thoughts continue to go out to everyone that was involved in the accident. While we know there is nothing that can change what happened, Walmart has been committed to doing what’s right to help ensure the well-being of all of those who were impacted by the accident. We worked closely with Mr. Morelli, and we are pleased to have reached an amicable settlement that ends this litigation. We are deeply sorry that one of our trucks was involved.“
Morgan’s attorney then added saying “Walmart and I worked diligently to reach this settlement for the plaintiffs and their families. Walmart took full responsibility for the accident, which we greatly appreciate.“
The terms of the settlement are confidential.
