MGM Suing Victims of Mass Shooting – Episode 48

The MGM Casino is suing the victims of the Las Vegas Mass Shooting that happening during the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. This lawsuit is being filed under the provisions of “The Safety Act”. As of July 2018 the MGM has sued over 1900 victims/families of victims of the mass shooting. Essentially the MGM knows it’s going to be sued by these victims for their suffering, so they’re counter suing to get a judge to rule that they have no liability for the shooter. Matt and Tony jump into this topic with the upmost disgust for this loophole.

Highlights:

  • [06:00] – The MGM offered to make a $500 charitable donation in the name of each person who accepts legal notice of the lawsuit and does not try and sue the MGM.
  • [09:10] – After 911 the Federal Gov’t set up a law called “The Safety Act” The Safety Act protects parties for claims resulting from acts of terrorism.
  • [11:40] – The CSC Corporation was hired by the MGM to perform security for the music festival. The MGM is using this to say they went to great lengths to ensure concertgoers safety.
  • [18:08] – Authorities found ammonium nitrate and 1600 rounds of ammunition in the killer Stephen Paddocks car.

The Takeaway – We’re in an insane gun culture we need to come together on a reasonable comprise.
