"The survivors of 70 people killed the 2001 Milan runway collision, have sued Cessna and Jeppesen Sanderson Inc. for wrongful death, seeking at least $5.25 million in damages. The lawsuits allege that Cessna was negligent and vicariously liable because the pilots flying the plane, Cessna employees, were not trained properly to operate it in poor visibility. Jeppesen Sanderson made the charts used by the Cessna pilots to guide them around the airport. The charts included ""invalid, inaccurate, outdated or otherwise misleading information,"" the lawsuits alleged." (AP)
