McMahon Lawsuit Settled at Breakneck Speed

5/26/2009 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ed McMahonThe people who own the mansion where Ed McMahon broke his neck are finally off the hook -- a judge dismissed the case one day before it was set to go to trial.

Ed filed the lawsuit back in 2007 when he slipped on a ramp-like staircase -- which Ed believed to be "unsafe" -- at a mansion owned by investment tycoon Robert Day and his wife Kelly.

But according to documents, filed in L.A. County Superior Court on Thursday, the Days were finally dismissed from the suit after the two parties reached a settlement -- the terms of which have not been made public.

Ed settled the other half of this lawsuit -- which was a malpractice claim against the doctors and the hospital Ed claimed failed to spot and treat his injury -- a few weeks ago.

The terms of that settlement has not been made public either.

He is suing to make money for his house. What a loser. Maybe the dog he is married to can go spend his new money, and they can beg people for money for their house again.

Nice when you're a celebrity My lawyer, Michael Fishbein, of Phila, Pa. literally forced me to settle a med. malpractice case against Dr. Peter J. Jannetta for such a paltry amt it never even covered the lifelong medical exp[enses as well as the facial disfigurement and lifelong disability, this despite the Pa. Superior Court calling defendant Jannetta a pejuror (thst is someone bearing false witness under oath stating: "We have little difficulty in concluding that Dr. Jannetta's testimony at deposition was different than, or inconsistent with, the testimony at trial." Levy v Jannetta, CCP Allegheny County, GD 81-7689; appeal -J. A370017/92 Levy v Jannetta et al, No. 00150 Pittsburgh, 1992. settled, 1995.
Oddly or coincidentally enough this case, which was in the courts for 14 years (Fishbein taking the appeal) was settled 3 weeks before Governor Ridge nominated Jannetta for Pa. Sec't of Health.
Wish I had been a celebrity so my lawyer would have given a damn.

thank you Mr.Robert Day for looking the other way. I am sure you simply though about his current health issues and his personal problems.

I used to like Ed but now I feel he is a disgusting person.

Hopefully, no one will ever invite him again because they might get sued.
