Seven lawsuits have been filed in connection with the deadly Metrolink commuter train crash. The lawsuits were filed Tuesday and Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, on behalf of the victims of the Sept. 12 disaster.

Two of the lawsuits allege negligence and wrongful death and seek unspecified amounts in damages. They name the regional rail authority that operates Metrolink, several contract companies and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority as defendants.

The other five negligence lawsuits name Connex Railroad, a contractor that provides engineers who run the Metrolink trains, its parent company Veolia Transportation, and the estate of the train's engineer as defendants. The lawsuits seek a jury trial and general damages.
