Filed in Miami’s Federal District Court, the lawsuit alleges that, despite not having a helicopter pilot license, Soffer was behind the helicopter's controls during the deadly crash on Great Guana Cay on November 22, 2012. Soffer reportedly did not tell any of the passengers in the chopper that he was without the proper license.

"At the time of the crash, the helicopter was being piloted by Jeffrey Soffer. Soffer was not licensed to fly. [Nor was he a] sufficiently experienced helicopter pilot,” the lawsuit reads.
Soffer also reportedly coerced the pilot to sign a statement that said he was at the controls at the time of the crash and not Soffer. In exchange for the signed statement the pilot was allegedly offered $10,000 per month "indefinitely."
Soffer's wife Macpherson was also named in the lawsuit, with Dasha claiming that the supermodel rang friends to get them to persuade the grieving widow to sign the release form.
