Jenni Rivera and six members of her entourage were killed in a horrific plane crash last month and relatives of the deceased are now demanding justice.

Four of the victims' families jointly filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Jenni's company and the owners of the decrepit jet that went down.

The legal documents maintain the company used poor judgement in picking crew and that the owners of the plane were negligent allowing a 43-year-old plane in disrepair to be used.

The statement said:

"Neither pilot was licensed to operate this aircraft at the time and altitude it was flying. We cast a wide net to find out exactly who is responsible and it may be that they're not. We have named Rivera Enterprises, who likely arranged the charter of this plane, in hindsight a very bad decision."

Ugh — it's all so sad!! We hope these grieving families find the closure they so desperately deserve.

Nothing can bring Jenni or the others back, but hopefully the lawsuit will prevent similar tragedy from happening in the future.

    I heard Jenni told the pilot of the plane she weighed a petite 105, when in reality she was topping over 300 pounds…

    Both comments are sooooo disrespectful! The people on that plane are husbands, brothers, sons, daughter, mother , father. This was an extremely tragic and awful accident. To make jokes about this situation is just heartless. May the deceased rest in peace, the families trust their faith in GOD will lead them through this terrible tragedy. GOD bless all of them.

    Why would Jenni's company be sued when she lost her life as well. Sue the jet company owners.

    I wondered why the 3:00 a.m. flight was scheduled for such a short distance when time was not of the essence. Also, the plane's former owner was linked to Mexican drug cartels, I seem to recall reading. I believe someone in Jenni's group was involved in nefarious dealings–not Jenni herself.

    Again, WHO? Just like Selena, didn't get any US press until death. People die every day, if you didn't know her… shut up!
