Something to celebrate this Labor Day weekend: "Twilight" star Taylor Lautner has settled his lawsuit against the Orange County RV dealership that failed to deliver his $300,000 trailer in time for the shoot of his latest movie.
According to the automotive litigation experts at USmagazine.com, McMahon's RV has agreed to pay $40,000, which Lautner lawyer Robert Barta says will be donated to the Lollipop Theater Network, a children's charity supported by the actor.
"The Lollipop Theater Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing movies currently in theaters to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses," Barta says.
McMahon's lawyer Adam Obeid didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. (UPDATE: Obeid declines to comment beyond telling us the matter has been settled and the money will go to charity.) We're betting McMahon's was happy to pay the $40,000, considering the free publicity it got when owner Brent McMahon offered to settle the case with a push-up contest.
So Lautner wins, the RV dealership wins, the charity wins, and everyone can feel good about the state of the world this holiday weekend.
