Walmart Says It’s Tracy Morgan’s Fault
Walmart is defending itself from a suit by comedian Tracy Morgan by saying the injuries he incurred were his own fault.
In its response Monday, Wal-Mart denied any responsibility for the auto accident — and said Morgan’s claim that the crash came from their negligence was bogus.
“Upon information and belief, plaintiffs’ injuries, if any, were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device,” Wal-Mart’s court papers said.
Morgan failed to “exercise ordinary care in making use of available seatbelts … and acted unreasonably and in disregard of plaintiffs’ own best interests,” Wal-Mart alleged.
The retail giant also argued it didn’t owe any punitive damages to Morgan because he was negligent in failing to wear his seatbelt, as required by law.[su_csky_ad]
