Its been almost a year since the Route 91 Music Festival massacre occurred in October 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. Never thought we would be writing such a thing however you went pass an article that said MGM Resort sues more than 1000 Route 91 shooting victims… huh?!
However we read more into the article and this is what took from it. Please read below.
“This move comes as MGM Resorts has proven that the security they had on staff for the event was approved by Homeland Security, which in theory should remove liability form the hotel in which Stephen Paddock plotted and carried out the deadliest mass shooting in American history.”
Please read the MGM Resort release statement:
In a statement to 8 News Now, MGM spokeswoman Debra DeShong explained the countersuits:
“The unforeseeable events of October 1 affected thousands of people in Las Vegas and throughout North America.
“From the day of this tragedy, we have focused on the recovery of those impacted by the despicable act of one evil individual. While we expected the litigation that followed, we also feel strongly that victims and the community should be able to recover and find resolution in a timely manner.
“Congress provided that the Federal Courts were the correct place for such litigation relating to incidents of mass violence like this one where security services approved by the Department of Homeland Security were provided.
“The Federal Court is an appropriate venue for these cases and provides those affected with the opportunity for a timely resolution. Years of drawn-out litigation and hearings are not in the best interest of victims, the community and those still healing.”
