A month after settling the lawsuit over the deadly 2008 plane crash that killed four people and injured him and his late friend DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), Travis Barker filed for dismissal of the wrongful death suit against Clay Lacy Aviation.
While the amount of the settlement was undisclosed, in the dismissal papers filed on January 11 in Los Angeles Superior Court, Barker says he “is recovering $10,000 or more in value by this action.”
Clay Lacy Aviation is a jet-charter company. Barker had sued for “pain and suffering, psychological and emotional distress and disfigurement and pre-impact fear of death and burning.”
On September 19, 2008, Barker and Goldstein were on a private plane after playing a free concert in Columbia, South Carolina, when the plane skidded off the runway, crossed a highway, and crashed after the pilots tried to abort takeoff. The two men were the crash’s sole survivors and suffered from third degree burns.
They had also sued Learjet, Global Exec Aviation, Inter Travel & Services, and Goodyear.
