The plaintiffs included two Spanish citizens, Felicidad Redondo Iban and Maria Jesus Redondo Iban, as well as Daniel Armyn of New York and Amy Miller of New Jersey. Nicole Armyn, Daniel's wife, and Marino Ucero Estrades, Maria's husband, who were not aboard the train, were also named as plaintiffs.
