Flightradar24 posted that reviewing the data after the crash they found out this info and passed it on to the BEA and made it public 2 days later
Where did they get this data from? AFAIK it isn't broadcasted by the ADS-B.

ETA: guess I was wrong...

If it was negligent in vetting the employee, sure.
Families could also pursue a theory of negligence for not having a 2 crew-member policy, particularly if they should have been on notice following similar suspected incidents in the past involving other carriers.

There are too many jurisdictions involved to have a comprehensive answer.     
how many jurisdictions? German doctor treating German patient.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/27/europe/france-germanwings-plane-crash-main/index.html

What is a Dr's responsibility if they have a patient they think is too depressed to fly a plane?
Is he allowed to tell the employer? Does he have a duty to do so if he feels he'll put others at harm? Can he be sued for not doing so?
Obviously it depends on the law where the dr practices, but in America the precedent is set that the psychiatrist has a duty to protect someone whom he/she believes a patient has both ability and intent to harm (see http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarasoff_v._Regents_of_the_University_of_California). Complicated stuff no doubt about it, I'm sure this will spark change in how privacy is handled for medical patients with people's lives in their hands.

FTFY. Don't expect medical privacy laws to change so quickly.

Wonder if any of the passengers took a video on their smart phone while all this was happening and they find the smart phone in the wreckage? I hope the recovery teams are checking smart phones and cameras.

They're probably checking everyone's social media accounts. Maybe someone posted while it was happening.

Highly doubt there's WiFi or any other connectivity on such a flight...
And if yes it would have long been viral, through friends etc.

How is it that my cell phone cracks when I drop it, but a cell phone survived a 500mph crash?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Most have been a Nokia :))

But seriously, who said the phone survived? Maybe the video had to be recovered from a smashed SD card?

You'd be surprised how resilient some memory cards are. I've put some through the wash and they're working fine to this day.
