After Tragic Jenni Rivera Crash, Families Of Passengers Receive $70 million Settlement

Three years after the tragic plane crash that took the lives of Jenni Rivera and four members of her entourage, a Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge has ruled that the families are entitled to a $70 million settlement. The court ruling comes after Starwood Management LLC, the company responsible for the upkeep of the Learjet involved in the crash, abandoned their defense, leaving them subject to the default ruling. While no amount of money can fill the void that comes from the loss of a family member, the verdict means the families can now hold accountable those responsible.

“Now, the next chapter begins to recover the substantial damages caused by this loss,” said Paul R. Kiesel, the attorney who represented the families.
