Mandalay Bay hotel owner sues Las Vegas shooting victims
Jul 17, 2018, 22:44
MGM Resorts, parent company of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort, has filed a lawsuit against more than 1,000 victims of the last October's Las Vegas massacre.
MGM Resorts is arguing that because they hired a security company approved by the Department of Homeland Security created to prevent and respond to "acts of mass injury and destruction" to guard the festival, they are off the hook for any damages suffered by shooting victims.
A Las Vegas lawyer, Robert Eglet, who has represented numerous victims said he believes MGM Resorts is looking for a new judge.
Some critics of MGM see the company as seeking to find a favorable judge. The lawsuit is not asking for money; it wants the court to consider the applicability of the 2002 SAFETY Act.

Rosenstein also stressed that "there's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result". A dozen Russian intelligence officers have been indicted by a USA grand jury for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
However, Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who has represented several victims, said the case "verges on unethical".
"The Federal Court is an appropriate venue for these cases and provides those affected with the opportunity for a timely resolution", said Debra DeShong, spokeswoman for MGM Resorts.
Since the shooting, more than 2,500 people have sued or threatened to sue MGM and its properties, according to the lawsuits. Paddock, 64, killed himself before authorities could capture him.
By hiring CSC, whose services the Department of Homeland Security has approved "for protecting against and responding to acts of mass injury and destruction", MGM is claiming it is absolved from responsibility in the shooting.
But in the new lawsuits, MGM Resorts is citing a 2002 congressional law called the SAFETY Act, which limits the liability in any mass shootings or acts of terrorism, and is meant to protect companies from going out of business.

Without the official designation, the MGM claims attempt to ask federal judges to make this determination, which is not what the statute envisioned, says Finch.
Because MGM hired the security company for the Route 91 country music festival, the protection extends to MGM, the lawsuit argues.
