Last week, Clay Lacy Aviation, the company that chartered the plane was sued for wrongful death because "the crash ultimately caused Adam Goldstein's (DJ AM) death," TMZ reported.

The amended suit in L.A. County Superior Court stated that DJ AM was forced to take various drugs for the burns and emotional distress he suffered as a result of the crash.

In addition, DJ AM's estate is suing Goodyear Tire, the travel service, and Learjet as well as the estates of the two pilots who were killed in the crash.


A rep for Clay Lacy Aviation said, "Clay Lacy Aviation did not own or operate the aircraft involved."
