UPDATE: Defendant Clay Lacy Aviation released this additional statement to E! News on Nov. 25:
"We want our valued customers to know the Clay Lacy Aviation did not own or operate the aircraft involved in the accident nor did we provide the aircrew. Clay Lacy referred Mr. Barker to another certified charter company who became the primary operators of this tragic trip. Any aviation accident diminishes all of us in the industry. We are deeply saddened by this terrible accident and extend our heartfelt sympathy to the families and victims."
Travis Barker is seeking a different kind of closure.
The former Blink-182 drummer has filed a negligence lawsuit against the owner and makers of what he claims was a "defective" Learjet that crashed Sept. 19, killing four and leaving Barker and Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein with severe burns. (View the lawsuit.)
Per court documents filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Barker's camp believes that "one or more of the tires failed, leaving tire debris and portions of airplane components along the 8,600 foot runway" and the pilot made a "negligent attempt to abort the takeoff."
"The pilot's decision was a breach of their duty owed to the passengers onboard and was a substantial factor in causing the crash and resultant injuries and deaths," the suit continues.
