    Family of comedian killed in crash that seriously injured Tracy Morgan settled suit against Walmart for $10 million

    The family of a comedian who died in the horrific crash that nearly killed funnyman Tracy Morgan settled their wrongful death suit against Walmart for $10 million, it was reported Friday.

    The staggering sum was revealed in court documents filed in Westchester, the Associated Press reported.

    The out-of-court settlement between James (Uncle Jimmy Mack) McNair’s estate and the company was the first stemming from the June 7 crash in which a Walmart truck slammed into a limo van carrying Morgan and others home from a show in Delaware.

    The deal itself was announced in January, but the financial terms were not disclosed because of a confidentiality agreement.

    The sum was revealed in a court filing where McNair’s lawyer, Daryl Zaslow, was arguing that he’s entitled to a $3 million fee for his work on the case, the AP reported................................

    The lawyer gets $3 million for a settlement?

    Must be nice. The family gets the money and the dead guy stays dead.

    Using this math, a living and disabled Morgan should get a whole lot more.

    Right because Tracy Morgan earned far more that his is unable to earn. That happened probably during his peek earning years.
    He is going to own Walmart but then again I bet they have very good lawyers.

    What about the other comedian that was in the limo bus?
