As previously reported, Kenneth Ned has filed suit against his employer, JBS Packing, on Oct. 27, 2010, in Jefferson County District Court, claiming he was struck by a forklift carrying ice.
Court records show that the take-nothing judgment was entered in the case on March 10.
The judgment states that the parties have compromised and settled the claim.
The suit alleged that on June 4, 2010, Ned was going about his duties for JBS Packing when a co-worker struck him with a forklift carrying ice, injuring him.

He was suing for his past and future mental anguish, pain, medical expenses and lost wages.
Houston attorney Adam Rosenfeld of Schechter, McElwee, Shaffer & Harris represented him.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, was assigned to the case.
