Ed McMahon Settles Lawsuit Against Cedars

5/4/2009 7:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ed McMahonLawyers for Ed McMahon say the malpractice portion of the lawsuit he filed against Cedars-Sinai Medical Facility, a doctor and two homeowners has been settled.

McMahon sued the hospital for misdiagnosing a neck fracture he suffered at Robert and Kelly Days' Bel Air home back in 2007 -- and then screwing up two spine operations that followed.

The malpractice portion of the suit was settled for an undisclosed amount -- the section of the lawsuit involving the Days is still pending.

UPDATE: A motion was just filed by Ed in the Superior Court of California, trying to ban any offering of "evidence, testimony or argument" regarding the Cedars settlement during McMahon's trial against the Days.

The reason, according to the motion, is there's a "significant danger" the jury will feel Ed has already been "sufficiently compensated."

That is one way to keep ones house.Fall at somebodys place and sue everybody involved in the "accident".McMahon was always no more than a second banana but I never knew him for being so slippery.Shame on him.They should have refused attention at the hospital.Now he better stay up and in one piece because next time he'll get histerectomy for a simple cold.He,he,he....Wouldn't that be super?.

I would never say :its time to leave the world" like #6 did. But we are supposed to hope to leave the world a better place than it was when we entered it. We are supposed to do our best, not "make it" off someones elses expense like hes done all his life. Shame on you Ed!

Hey, Cedars - you are a mess. You need to treat non-celebrities with the regard and responsibility that you treat people in the media. Your doctors are hurting people, administration is a mess, you violate HIPAA, you violate consent. Right on to anyone who sues for malpractice.
