The estate of Mexican-American superstar Jenni Rivera on Monday sued the owners of a Learjet that crashed two years ago, killing the singer and several members of her entourage.
The negligence case is against Starwood Management Inc., which owned the Learjet 25 jet that crashed in northern Mexico in December 2012 after plunging more than 28,000 feet. The case is also against the companies that serviced the aircraft, Bombardier Inc. and Learjet Inc.
Rivera's company has been sued along with Starwood by relatives of those killed in the crash, including her attorney, hairstylist, publicist and makeup artist and one of the plane's pilots. Attorneys are scheduled to update a judge Wednesday on the progress of settlement talks between Rivera's company and the relatives.
