Just days after a judge ruled that Porsche is not liable for Paul Walker's death in a 2013 crash, bittersweet news for the actor's daughter: Meadow Walker has been awarded a $10.1 million settlement from the estate of Roger Rodas, who was driving the Porsche Carrera GT that crashed, killing both Rodas and Walker. The lawyer for Meadow, 17, says the amount is just "a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short," People reports. Meadow has filed her own lawsuit against Porsche, which is continuing. (Click to see Meadow's touching tribute to her dad.)
