    DJ AM Seeks $20 Million For Plane Crash Damages

     DJ AM is seeking $20 million in damages related to a plane crash in South Carolina last year that killed four others.

    The celebrity DJ, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, is suing the plane's manufacturer, Learjet, and several other companies.

    Goldstein is seeking $10 million for medical expenses, lost earnings, profits and economic damages and another $10 million related to non-economic losses, such as mental and physical pain, according to a document filed Friday.

    A jury will decide any damage award if the case goes to trial.

    Several of the companies sued last year by Goldstein and fellow crash survivor Travis Barker are seeking a trial delay until after a government investigation of the Sept. 19 crash is complete.

    A lawyer for Learjet did not immediately return a phone message on Monday afternoon.
