MGM Grand, owner of the Mandalay Bay Hotel where a gunman opened fire a year ago, recently filed counter lawsuits. The hotel action is against lawsuits brought by more than 1,000 people who survived last October’s massacre and those who lost relatives. MGM argues that it has “no liability of any kind” for the attack.
After firing automatic weapons into the attendees below at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival for ten deadly minutes, killing 58, the murderer shot himself. Questions include how hotel employees knew or didn’t know the man had frequently been seen in the garage, elevators and his room carrying large suitcases that contained weapons and ammunition.
Future court battles will involve basic questions. Playing at a casino table and you try an illegal card trick, many cameras will spot you instantly. Therefore,, in America’s most security-protected city, how could cameras, guards, cleaning and other hotel staff not see what the insane killer was preparing.
