Tracy Morgan has been released from a rehabilitation center where he has been recovering from injuries he suffered in a fatal car crash last month. The 30 Rock star, who looked gaunt leaving the facility, will continue his "recovery efforts at home with an aggressive outpatient program," his rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Morgan will also have plenty of time to plan his lawsuit against Wal-Mart, whose truck crashed into the vehicle Morgan and his friends were riding in on their way home from a gig in Atlantic City. The six-car pileup killed Morgan's friend and comedy writer James McNair

"Wal-Mart was careless and negligent in the ownership and operation of its motor vehicle, which caused Mr. Morgan to suffer severe personal injuries," the complaint, filed in New Jersey on Thursday, reads.
