Tracy Morgan Sues Wal-Mart for Crash that Killed a Fellow Comedian

Tracy Morgan has sued Wal-Mart over last month's highway crash that seriously injured him and killed a fellow comedian. The lawsuit, filed July 10, 2014 in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, claims Wal-Mart was negligent when a driver of one of its tractor-trailers rammed into Morgan's limousine van. The complaint claims the retail giant should have known the driver had been awake for over 24 hours, and that his commute of 700 miles from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware was 'unreasonable.' It also alleges the driver fell asleep at the wheel. The June 7 wreck on the New Jersey Turnpike killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair, who went by the name Jimmy Mack. Comedian Ardley Fuqua and Jeffrey and Krista Millea, who were injured as passengers in the limo, are also named as plaintiffs. Morgan, the former 'Saturday Night Live' and '30 Rock' star, suffered a broken leg and broken ribs in the crash and is currently in a rehabilitation center. Fuqua is recovering from crash-related injuries. Truck driver Kevin Roper, 35, of Jonesboro, Georgia, has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges. A criminal complaint also accuses him of not sleeping for more than 24 hours before the crash, a violation of New Jersey law. A report by federal transportation safety investigators said Roper was driving 65 mph in the 60 seconds before he slammed into the limo van. The speed limit on that stretch of the turnpike is 55 mph and was lowered to 45 mph that night because of construction. Roper had been on the job about 13 1/2 hours at the time of the crash, the report concluded. Federal rules permit truck drivers to work up to 14 hours a day, with a maximum of 11 hours behind the wheel. Morgan, a New York City native, was returning from a standup performance at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware when the crash occurred. Morgan's lawsuit seeks a jury trial and punitive and compensatory damages. A message seeking comment from Wal-Mart was not immediately returned Saturday.

Ex-Walmart Employee Seeks $5 Million for False Imprisonment and Racial Discrimination

Jametta Payno, a resident of Niles, MI, has filed suit in the Federal District Court for the Western Division of Michigan claiming $5 million in damages for false imprisonment and racial discrimination. Joined in the lawsuit as defendants is the Berrien County Sheriff's Department. The case is Payno v. Wal-Mart et al., Case No. 1:14-cv-00677. As documented in the lawsuit, the incident arose when a woman other than Payno was approached by theft prevention at Wal-Mart's location in Niles, MI, for attempting to steal a cart full of merchandise on January 18, 2014. According to the police report, the woman was caught attempting to flee the scene and provided several false stories until ultimately identifying a Caucasian former manager and "the fat black girl at the register" as her accomplices. Payno was identified as "the fat black girl." Payno, who was working at the time, was not called into the office for questioning. Instead, according to Payno, at 1:00 a.m. that evening, she was arrested at her home, handcuffed and carried to the Sheriff's office for fingerprinting and photographs on the charges of retail theft and embezzlement. Charges were not pursued against the former manager. The complaint alleges Payno asked that Walmart look at the videos at her work station to exonerate her. They did nothing. The embezzlement charge, which was without foundation, made it so that Payno could not make bond but had to linger in jail. Payno was held in jail for two nights. When Payno was finally brought before a judge no mention was made of the embezzlement charge. Payno refused to plead guilty to the charge of retail fraud. The case was set for trial and on that day she was told by the Court that all the charges were dismissed.
