    Adam Goldstein—better known as the Los Angeles-based DJ AM—filed a $20 million lawsuit against Goodyear, Learjet and three charter operators on Friday. The claim is in response to the September 19 flight that left four dead and just two survivors: Goldstein and his close friend/collaborator, blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating what caused the crash, so it’s likely that a jury trial related to the damages ($10 million in medical expenses, lost earnings and profit; and another $10 million for mental and physical pain) and an additional wrongful death won’t start until that’s settled.

    Learjet hasn’t commented on Goldstein’s new suit, but they have blamed the charter flight’s operators for failing “to properly maintain and service the aircraft.”
