Aircraft Owners Sue Manufacturers Over Travis Barker and DJ AM's Plane Crash
The owners of the plane which crashed and seriously injured Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein aka DJ AM have filed suit against the aircraft's manufacturers. Goldstein, who died of a drug overdose a year after the 2008 accident, and Barker both suffered burns, while four others were killed in the horrific crash in South Carolina.
The companies which owned and operated the jet, Global Exec Aviation and ITAS Inc., were among the firms which reached financial settlements with the survivors and families who lost loved ones. Now executives at the two organisations have filed their own lawsuit against the plane's manufacturers - Learjet and Bombardier.
The suit claims the private jet had "unreasonably dangerous defects" which allegedly caused the crash, and is seeking reimbursement of the victims' settlements. The lawsuit also demands more than $1 million in additional damages, according to TMZ.
