DJ AM estate sues for wrongful death

Filed negligence, breach of contract lawsuit before death

Court documents say the estate of Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein is suing several defendants for wrongful death.

Goldstein sustained serious injuries in a plane crash in September 2008 in South Carolina and later died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and cocaine in August in New York.

Before his death, Goldstein filed a negligence and breach of contract lawsuit.

The amended complaint filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court names several defendants, including Clay Lacy Aviation and Learjet Inc.

The 26-year-old Goldstein was known for his disc jockey skills and his relationships with actress-singer Mandy Moore and reality TV star Nicole Richie.

Attorneys for Clay Lacy Aviation did not respond to a request for comment. A message left with a lawyer for Learjet was not immediately returned.
