Barker and Goldstein suffered serious burns from the crash.

Goldstein filed his lawsuit for negligence and breach of contract in Los Angeles Superior Court on December 23.

Barker filed his own lawsuit in November, suing the plane’s owners, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., and an airplane maintenance company, seeking more than $25,000 in damages.
