Glenn Norton has been appointed mediator in the case involving the late Kevin Ward Jr., and Tony Stewart.

The mediation session is scheduled for April 18 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Johnny Cargill, director of marketing and communications for the Lanier Law Firm, which is representing the Ward Family, confirmed the date and added mediation would be non-binding. However, he would not comment on the case.

Stewart has been sued by the Ward family for allegedly causing the death of then 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in Ontario County, N.Y. on Aug. 9, 2014.
