Judge Orders Tony Stewart To Court

Utica, N.Y. - A judge has ordered NASCAR great Tony Stewart and the family of an amateur racer he hit and killed to be in court today.

Stewart was cleared of criminal charges for a 2014 Canandaigua Motorsports Park crash that killed Kevin Ward but faced a civil lawsuit.  Stewart and the victim's parents reached a confidential settlement this week and asked that the hearing in Utica be canceled.  

The judge said he has to determine if a binding agreement has been reached and details don't have to be discussed.  He said both parties need to be in Utica today or he'll continue with a jury trial.
