Mandalay Bay Owners Just Sued The Vegas Shooting Victims – Expose This Now!

Published

on

In a truly despicable and wildly unethical act, the corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed a lawsuit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting. The basis for the lawsuit claims the casino and resort claim no liability for the attack that left nearly 60 people dead, and more than 400 injured.

MGM Resorts International filed suit in federal courts in both Nevada and in California naming more than 1,000 shooting victims with claims against the hotel giant.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal –

“The company, which owns Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue, argues that it cannot be held liable for Oct. 1 deaths, injuries or other damages, adding that any claims against MGM parties “must be dismissed,” according to complaints filed Friday in Nevada and California.

“Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants,” the complaints argue.

The company cites a 2002 federal act that extends liability protection to any company that uses “anti-terrorism” technology or services that can “help prevent and respond to mass violence.”

In this case, the company argues, the security vendor MGM hired for Route 91, Contemporary Services Corp., was protected from liability because its services had been certified by the Department of Homeland Security for “protecting against and responding to acts of mass injury and destruction.”

The lawsuits argue that this protection also extends to MGM, since MGM hired the security company.

They do not seek money from the victims but do ask that a judge decide if the 2002 act is applicable, and if so, determine that future civil lawsuits against the company are not viable.

Debra DeShong, a spokeswoman for MGM Resorts, released a statement about the litigation Monday.

According to the statement, ‘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.'”

Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, states MGM’s unusual actions are simply a pre-emptive strike to force the case to be heard in federal court rather than state court. MGM believes they have a better chance of victory over the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting in a federal case.

Eglet states the MGM lawsuits are a “blatant display of judge shopping” that “quite frankly verges on unethical.”

He adds -“I’ve never seen a more outrageous thing, where they sue the victims in an effort to find a judge they like. It’s just really sad that they would stoop to this level.”

The actions of MGM have been precipitated by hundreds of victims joining in class action lawsuits -the largest of which was filed on behalf of 450 people – against MGM in an attempt to hold the company legally liable for not doing more to prevent the attack. Business Insider reports the lawsuit could have wide-ranging ramifications for the nightlife industry in Las Vegas.

Victims are also suing the shooter Stephen Paddock’s estate and the concert organizer Live Nation Entertainment Inc. as well as, in some cases, the manufacturer of the bump stocks that allowed Paddock to fire as if he were using automatic weapons.

Nevada legal precedent does not rest in MGM’s favor either as it suggests the company could potentially be held liable for Paddock’s rampage. In October, the Nevada Supreme Court found that MGM could be held liable in a 2010 assault on a California couple at one of the company’s hotels. The court ruled that the attack was “foreseeable” because there had been similar cases of violence at the hotel. The question of whether the Las Vegas shooting was foreseeable will be central to the plaintiff’s case. It also offers some insight as to why MGM is so desperate to have their case heard in federal court, rather than state court.

Furthermore, with several high-profile mass shootings previously taking place across the US prior to the events on Oct. 1 in Las Vegas, attorneys representing the victims could successfully argue hotels and other venues should have foreseeably taken steps to expand measures to try to prevent them. The fact that Paddock was able to smuggle nearly two dozen firearms into his room undetected could and likely will create serious and significant problems for the defense.

Dick Hudak, a managing partner of Resort Security Consulting, states – “Foreseeability is one of the key components of liability.”

Heidi Li Feldman, a professor at Georgetown Law School, states it is “entirely feasible” that an attorney would make this argument using based on the fact that mass shootings have taken place at other entertainment venues.

Feldman states – “If Congress isn’t regulating gun ownership, it is going to be private parties … who end up regulating their own premises.”

Currently, the hotel and resort industries have no set standards for security. As a whole, hotels are typically not held accountable for the behavior of their guests. However, that could change if any of the hundreds of victims suing Mandalay Bay win their case. It will set a new precedent for how hotels handle security moving forward.

More importantly, the lawsuits may also shed some new light on exactly what happened that day as police have repeatedly changed their timeline of events. MGM itself has done everything in its power to prevent employees involved in its response effort from speaking publically about the events that transpired on Oct 1. Perhaps answers will be forthcoming regarding exactly how Paddock, a 64-year-old-man, able to plan and execute the attack by himself. When did Paddack’s deadly shooting rampage begin and when exactly was Campos shot? After Campos called the police, exactly how long did it take SWAT to reach Paddock’s room and did the hotel staff report the incident with the promptness such an incident requires?

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES As it Approaches Border

Amazing how this happens mere weeks before the midterm elections.

Time to put military on full alert and stationed at the border. This is an invasion and needs to be stopped in its tracks AT the border.

Stop the invasion!

From The Gateway Pundit:

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Part of the caravan, which has split into two groups, is now approaching the Mexico-Guatemala border amidst a surge in border crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, where plans to stop the caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, according to a senior State Department official who spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

“I am certain that there will be conversations in Mexico about how we can work together on this issue,” the official said about the caravan. “We are certainly looking for concrete results and for solutions that work for both countries.”

President Trump didn’t even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

The President’s fury continued into late Tuesday evening as he fired off another pair of tweets putting Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on notice.

Anyone entering illegally will be arrested and detained prior to being sent back to their country, President Trump said.

Democrats Just Announce Sick New Way They Plan To Dominate GOP In Midterms To Regain Control

Yet another perfect example if the tyrannical nature of the democrats. They can’t win by the rules, so they change the rules. Dishonest, lying, cheating, thieves. All that party is.

We must vote in November. Stop the democrats!

From The Daily Wire:

When all else fails, change the system.

Leftist luminaries, who weren’t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they’ve now, apparently, resorted to “reforming” the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the “balance of power,” the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

“Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government,” activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC’s “Think” platform.

“[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters,” he continues.

Vladick argues that “changing the size of the House of Representatives would make that body far more reflective of the country at large” by narrowing the size of Congressional districts and limiting district size based on population. In most cases, that would involve halving districts.

But it’s not clear how having more districts with fewer people makes the House more representative, since House members are duly elected and, in most cases, making the districts smaller wouldn’t improve a member’s ability to lunch with every last one of his or her constituents.

What it does do, however, is help the Democrats remain in control of one house of Congress at all times by giving larger cities and their immediate metropolitan areas (where there are bigger populations in smaller areas) more seats. Unless large cities with high populations switch to the GOP in the near future, Democrats would hold the clear majority in the House ad infinitum.

So really, the House would become “more reflective” of … Democratic strongholds.

Tricky, tricky.

Unfortunately for Democrats, none of these proposals — expanding the Senate, packing the Supreme Court, or doubling the size of the House — are likely headed for approval.
