I don't see how Goldstein's family can sue for wrongful death. If Goldstein hadn't been a drug addict, he surely wouldn't have OD'd after the plane crash.

Why should the "estate" of BJ PM get any money? He's dead. His family should not be able to profit from the crash.

Gerald C. Sterns, the attorney representing the family of the pilot of the ill-fated Lear jet, Sarah Hagar Lemmon have also reached an agreement of settlement with the manufacturer of the aircraft, owners and operators of the air craft, and tire manufacturers.

The NTSB investigation cleared pilot Lemmon of all culpability in dealing with the dire emergency after the tires blew out at what is called, “Decision Speed.”

According to the NTSB investigation, Sarah Lemmon had about four seconds to decide to try to stop the aircraft or take it into the air with unknown consequences.

Her attorneys alleged had the Lear jet thrust reversors been properly designed and functioning, she could have easily stopped.

The NTSB has issued a special safety alert about this condition.

The amount of the settlement is confidential, said Gerald C. Sterns, of Sterns & Walker

Pilot Jim Bland was one of the best pilots & individuals I have ever met. I knew Jim for 30 years. Jim was a dedicated father, husband & served our country as a pilot for the US Customs Service for over 20 years. Jim's wife is an outstanding wife & mother in every respect. If there was any possible way to salvage this situation, Jim & Sarah would have done so. Sadly, no amount of money will bring them back or relive their loved ones of their grief over their loss.

Glad Travis can put this behind him now. As far as the late great DJAM goes, he relapsed into his addiction after needing pain killers from the burns he suffered as a result of the plane crash, also he needed anti anxiety drugs to be able to continue flying around the country to do his job. He died because his addiction was triggered as a direct result of the crash and should have never happened, it was total and complete BS! I hope his mom gets a bundle. It totally bites the AM is gone. He was VERY talented and everyone new it. People who don't like him are just mad because they could never do what he did and thousands of people would never pay them big bucks to do what he did. Adam was awesome. He was a deeply spiritual soul who was too sensitive for this old ,cold, crusty world. I know he is in a better place. Adam, dude..we miss you sooooooooo much! RIP.
