Tracy Morgan sues Walmart
July 14, 2014,
Newark, N.J. – Comedian Tracy Morgan filed suit against Wal-Mart in New Jersey federal court last week in the wake of a last month’s crash that killed another passenger and left Morgan critically injured, according to a report from Reuters.
Morgan’s complaint alleges that the retailer was negligent in regard to the June crash and knew or should have known its truck driver, Kevin Roper, had been awake for over 24 hours, a violation of federal regulations intended to prevent driver fatigue. The suit also alleges that Roper commuted more than 700 miles from his Georgia home to a Wal-Mart distribution center in Delaware before his shift.
