TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A lawyer for Tracy Morgan says the actor-comedian is still recovering from a brain injury sustained in a highway crash in New Jersey more than five months ago.

Lawyer Benedict Morelli said Tuesday the former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" star is recovering from a traumatic brain injury suffered in the June 7 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Lawyers were in court in New Jersey for a scheduling conference in Morgan's lawsuit against Wal-Mart.

A Wal-Mart truck slammed into the back of a limo van that was carrying Morgan and several friends on their way from a show in Delaware. One person was killed, and Morgan suffered a broken leg, broken nose and broken ribs and spent several weeks in the hospital and in rehab. Three others were injured, two seriously.
