MGM: ‘No Liability’ to Las Vegas Shooting Victims

MGM Resorts International filed a complaint in federal court Monday in a case brought by victims of the Las Vegas massacre, asking a judge to declare the company has “no liability” for the attack. MGM owns the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino and the venue of the Route 91 Harvest music festival where Stephen Paddock opened fire, killing 58 and injuring more than 850. MGM argues that a post-9/11 law limits its liability and that the lawsuit brought by hundreds of victims “must be dismissed” because MGM’s security company was certified by the government. Robert Eglet, a lawyer representing several of the victims, told the Las Vegas Journal-Review that MGM’s filing “outrageous.”
