Bill's absence in Netflix's The Movies That Made Us -Aliens is felt. I can imagine him saying with his passionate voice, "Game Over Man! Just Game Over!" Boy the loss of Paxton is still stinging my soul.

Bill Paxton's Family Reaches $1 Million Settlement With Anesthesia Firm Over Actor's Death

QuoteBill Paxton's widow and children have reached a partial settlement of their wrongful-death lawsuit, with an anesthesiologist medical group agreeing to pay $1 million.

Attorneys for Dr. Moody Makar and General Anesthesia Specialists Partnership filed court papers Wednesday with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Steven Kleifield seeking approval of the accord between the Paxton family members and the company. Makar works at the firm and was the anesthesiologist during heart surgery Paxton had less than two weeks before his death on February 25, 2017.

According to court documents, General Anesthesia Specialists' lawyers said the company "denies liability in this matter" but said the settlement deal will "reasonably compensate plaintiffs and avoid exposing defendant to an expensive and time consuming litigation."
Interesting. I'd guess that his death was unavoidable (who wants to be the guy that killed Bill Paxton?), and that the anaesthesiologists were doing all they could.

I'd say a settlement implies some guilt, but given the complications of the American legal system, it was probably cheaper than to drag it through the courts.

Can't imagine anyone is exactly pleased with the outcome, though.

Was thinking about watching Twister tonight, and I could hardly believe he's been gone 4 years already.

Unreal.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Thankfully the trailer gave you a smile back.
