The parents of two men on the boat with Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez when it crashed, killing all on board, are suing his estate, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Investigators haven’t said who was driving Fernandez’s boat in the early morning crash on Sept. 25, but when the “Kaught Looking” smashed into the stone jetty that protects the channel between the PortMiami and the sea, it took Fernandez, 24, his friend Eduardo Rivero and acquaintance Emilio Jesus Macias with it.

Families of Rivero, 25, and Macias, 27, are filing negligence and personal injury lawsuits in Miami for $2 million each, the Sentinel reported. Late last month, Fernandez’s mother petitioned to take over his estate, which is valued between $2 million and $3 million.

Their joint attorney, Christopher Royer, told the paper that Rivero’s family’s claim was filed Friday and Macias’ will be filed Monday.

Justin Bieber Abuses The Lawyer During Deposition — Must Watch

It’s an old video but a classic celebrity legal deposition video featuring Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber grows restless and curses during questioning and also preens in front of the camera in his deposition on March 6 in Miami flipping his collar up. Justins answers are often very soft spoken and hard to hear for the recording process. Bieber at one point tells the man asking questions ,these seem to be getting really off base these questions,and his lawyer says that they’re silly questions. A woman says to Justin I’m sorry to keep asking but can you please speak up? Justin snaps “Yes and No are fuckin pretty different.” Justin, 20, is being sued by American photographer Jeffrey Binion who claims the singer directed his bodyguards to attack him and steal his memory card.
