Walmart’s insurance company is reportedly fighting the settlement the retail giant agreed to pay Tracy Morgan as a result of a 2014 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that seriously injured the comedian and killed another man.

Back in September 2015, Tracy Morgan received a $90 million payout from Wal-Mart after he was seriously injured in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike last year.

According to reports, Tracy Morgan must hand over six years of tax returns and other highly personal information in an ongoing dispute over his megabucks crash settlement with Walmart.

A federal magistrate judge in New Jersey gave the comedian 20 days to cough up the documents sought by Walmart insurers in a ruling last week.

In the underlying dispute, Ohio Casualty Insurance Company and Liberty Insurance Underwriters are fighting their obligation to the “exorbitant” cash windfalls promised to Morgan and fellow comedian Ardie Fuqua by the retail behemoth.

Morgan and Fuqua both received confidential settlements from Walmart after the deadly July 7, 2014, crash on the New JerseyTurnpike that killed their friend James McNair.
