The suit the celebrity DJ, whose name is actually Adam Goldstein, filed names Learjet, the manufacturer of the plane, as well as several other companies, as defendants.
Goldstein seeks damages of $10 million for medical costs, loss of earnings and profits, and economic damages, in addition to another $10 million for non-economic losses, including physical and mental pain.
If the case goes to trial, any damages awarded will be decided by a jury.
Several of the companies Goldstein and rocker Travis Barker, another survivor of the crash, filed suit against seek to have a trial delayed until after the government completes an investigation into the September 19 crash.
