A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit filed by the family of a Tennessee soldier who died in a helicopter crash in Iraq. Before the settlement can be final, it will have to get final approval from a judge. The family of Capt. Marcus Ray Alford of Knoxville, Tenn., a member of the Tennessee National Guard, filed suit against government contractor Bell Helicopter Textron Inc. and other companies that supplied parts for the Kiowa OH-58D Warrior helicopter that crashed in 2010. Capt. Alford and 25-year-old Chief Warrant Office 2 Billie Jean Grinder, another Tennessee resident, died in the crash. The Grinder family has also filed suit and that case was still pending at press time.
