Blink-182’s Travis Barker settles plane-crash lawsuit

Learjet was among the defendants

Ex-Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker‘s lawsuit against companies involved in the plane crash he was involved in in September last year has been settled.

The defendants of the lawsuit included the Learjet company, who made the aeroplane that crashed with him on board, as well as Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co.

Lawyer William L Robinson, representing some of the defending companies, said the case was settled and the details were confidential, reports Billboard.


DJ AM, real name Adam Goldstein, also survived the crash, although four people died in it. Goldstein died of a suspected overdose in August.

In November 2008 Barker defended his decision to file a lawsuit, saying: “If something goes wrong that’s not supposed to go wrong or you fall victim of it, I think you should be compensated.”
