The Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino finds itself at the center of a legal nightmare, with hundreds of shooting victims coming forward and suing the Las Vegas hotel for ignoring dozens of “red flags” prior to Stephen Paddock’s rampage that left 58 people dead and over 400 injured.
According to Fox News, attorneys have filed a massive lawsuit on behalf of the nearly 500 victims after local law enforcement and federal investigators find themselves at a standstill; arguing that the Mandalay Bay Resort failed to prevent the mass shooting and protect concert-goers ahead of Paddock’s assault.
The lawyers filed the paperwork in Los Angeles, claiming a California jury would be more suitable to prosecuting a casino juggernaut with far-reaching influence in Nevada, saying “Los Angeles is a better venue for fairness for our clients […] There would be certain advantages for MGM to defend its case in Nevada.”
The mystery surrounding the deadliest mass shooting in American history continues to widen as investigators fail to find a motive or further clues regarding the deadly attack.
The Las Vegas Police Department hasn’t issued a press conference in weeks, and made national headlines last month after clarifying their official timeline of events three times.
