KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The family of the 20 year-old killed in a crash following a brief police chase last November is dropping its $10 million lawsuit against the trooper, the family announced on Monday.
Family members said their intentions were never meant to be harsh, rather they simply sought justice. They said they felt the Tennessee Highway patrol did its job by dismissing Van Morgan.
Dash cam video showed Van Morgan driving by the wreck that killed Kyle Anito. Van Morgan was fired after THP conducted an internal investigation.
Van Morgan is still fighting to get his job back and will appear in court on December 6 for his final attempt.
