Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow Settles Porsche Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed

Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow has settled with Porsche in her wrongful death lawsuit against the auto maker, according to court documents filed last week.

The terms of the lawsuit were not disclosed, but a Porsche spokesperson said in a statement to TheWrap that the matter had been resolved “to the mutual satisfaction of the parties.”

The “Fast and Furious” star died in a Southern California car crash in November 2013, while riding as a passenger in a Porsche driven by Roger Rodas, who was also killed.

His daughter filed suit against Porsche in September 2015, claiming that the Porsche Carrera GT “lacked safety features … that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash.”

Her complaint alleged that, despite Porsche being aware that the Carrera GT had “a history of stability and control problems,” the company failed to install its electronic stability control system, and lightened the weight of the car by using side-door reinforcement bars that “lacked adequate welds and consisted of material weaker in strength than what is used in popular mass-market cars.”

She also reached a $10.1 million settlement with Rodas’ estate, for his share of responsibility in the crash, in November 2014.
