Trial date set for Memphis woman's suit against Morgan Freeman

APTOPIX-People-Morgan-Freem.jpgDemaris L. Meyer of Memphis will get her day in court against actor Morgan Freeman next August, The Associated Press reported late last night.

Recall that early last August, Freeman was driving Meyer (right) in her car near his home in the Mississippi Delta when it left the road, flipped and landed in a ditch on Miss. 32 near Charleston. Both of them were seriously injured.

The aftermath of the wreck got ugly, with Meyer retaining celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred and denying that she was Freeman's mistress or the reason for the breakup of his marriage. For Freeman's part, his attorney claimed Meyer was partly to blame for the crash.

Meyer is suing Freeman for negligence. She claims medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages from her job at FedEx, permanent disability and property damage. The trial is set for Aug. 9, 2010, in Oxford.
