It has been nearly six months since a Walmart truck hit a bus carrying actor/comedian Tracy Morgan and several other passengers including James McNair, who was killed in the auto accident. Berkowitz and Hanna LLC has read a recent update that notes that lawyers for Mr. Morgan in his personal injury case are claiming that Walmart is stalling.
In a court filing this month, attorneys for Mr. Morgan opposed a motion to allow the Walmart truck driver to intervene in the case. In opposing the motion, the lawyers claimed that Walmart was intentionally delaying the case in order to avoid the disclosure of its safety practices. Walmart denied the accusations.
At this point, the next settlement conference in the case will take place in March—and the deadline for all motions to be filed has been extended to November of 2015. Berkowitz and Hanna LLC will continue to follow this high profile auto accident case and Mr. McNair’s wrongful death case.
Berkowitz and Hanna LLC did not represent any of the parties in this lawsuit.
