Former Blink-182 Drummer Settles Case For An "Undisclosed"
Travis Barker, the former drummer
for the band Blink-182, has settled his lawsuit against Learjet and
other companies stemming from a 2008 accident which killed both
pilots and two other people. Barker, along with radio host DJ-AM
(Adam Goldstein), survived the crash, though Goldstein later died
of unrelated causes.
The BBC reports that a lawyer for the companies involved
declined to reveal the terms of the settlement.
Barker had sued Learjet, along with Goodyear Tire and Rubber
Company and the Clay Lacy Aviation, the jet's owner, for failure to
properly maintain the aircraft. The jet's thrust reversers were
apparently not in the correct position during takeoff, which the
NTSB said caused it to veer of the runway and crash on a nearby
Goldstein died of an apparent drug overdose several months after
the accident, which his estate says was brought on by
post-traumatic stress following the crash. The estate has filed
suit against Learjet, Clay Lacy Aviation, Goodyear, and the estates
of the two pilots.
