The family of a Chicago restaurant executive who died in a tragic plane crash in January 2006 settled for $15 million last week. The aircraft’s pilot was an employee for Morgan Stanley as a senior financial advisor. Accident reports showed that he stalled outside of Chicago after being cleared for landing, and took a nosedive. Four people were killed in the accident. The lawsuit against the pilot’s estate and Morgan Stanley alleged that the financial corporation was had a deficient policy of allowing amateur pilots to fly company clients around on business. Morgan Stanley has since changed its policy mandating professional pilots for all business flights.
