Paul Walker behind the wheel of a Lexus LFA
The long-running, often bitter fight over the car collection amassed by actor Paul Walker before his death has finally come to a close.
Walker's cars were illegally removed from the warehouse where he had been storing them. A warehouse worker absconded with the cars, but Walker's estate filed a lawsuit against the worker, Richard Taylor.
Now, Walker's family says that they have settled outside of court amicably with Taylor, who was reportedly trying to extort the deceased actor's family. Terms of the lawsuit weren't made public. It's unclear from reports why the matter was referred to a civil court.
The attorney for Walker's estate confirmed that, "one of the conditions is that we’re getting things back," reports The Drive.
By "things," the attorney means the cars, which included European sports cars such as a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and several BMW M3s, as well as a vintage Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and some tuned Japanese coupes clearly inspired by "The Fast & The Furious."
This latest ruling comes on the heels of a settlement made on behalf of Walker's daughter, Meadow, that will see her receive $10.1 million from the estate of Roger Rodas. It was in Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that Walker was riding when he was killed back in November 2013. Rodas, who was driving the car, was killed in the crash too.
A judge ruled at that same time that Porsche was not to be held liable for the wreck.
