MCDUFFIE COUNTY, GA (WRDW) -- Families of the fatal plane crash victims at the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport filed civil suites in Fulton County Superior Court over the crash.

Some of the defendants named are the estate of Vein Guys co-owner Dr. Mary Anne Roth, wife of Dr. Steven Roth who died in the crash, city of Thomson, McDuffie County, the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport, Georgia Power Company.

The crash, which killed five employees from The Vein Guys, happened as a plane was returning to the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport from Nashville on Feb. 20.

The families of Kim Davidson, Heidi McCorkle and Tiffany Porter all have similarly written lawsuits. However, Lisa Volpitto's family's lawsuit is notably different. That lawsuit leaves out the pilots of the plane as well as Dr. Roth's wife. Lisa Volpitto's husband also worked with the Vein Guys at the time of the crash.
