According to the Associated Press, Kevin Roper, the driver, had his attorney file a motion Friday in federal court in Trenton to put Morgan’s lawsuit on hold pending the outcome of Roper’s criminal case in New Jersey.
Attorney David Glassman contends that letting the federal case proceed would force Roper to defend two actions at once, even though he isn’t named in Morgan’s lawsuit.
Morgan, a former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star, was returning from a performance in Delaware in June when a Wal-Mart truck slammed into the back of his limo van. Morgan suffered leg and rib injuries and spent several weeks in rehab.
We wish Tracy a continued and speedy recovery.
