Mandalay Bay Lawsuit Filed Against MGM Resorts International


The Mandalay Bay shooting in Las Vegas killed 58 concert attendees, injured over 800 others, and left thousands more with varying degrees of trauma. On October 3, more than four thousand plaintiffs sued MGM Resorts International for negligence and wrongful death. The plaintiffs cited the hotel’s lax security and lack of safety measures. Stephen Paddock had brought 23 guns and ammunition to his hotel suite. The two sides reached a settlement and MGM agreed to pay $800 million. A panel of retired judges will try to quantify the pain and suffering suffered by victims and the families of the deceased.

Although Mandalay Bay is not responsible for the shooting, it should be held liable for any injuries that occur.

There was no evidence to prove that the hotel was negligent, but it could have prevented the incidents that resulted in the deaths of hundreds. If the hotel had a better system to check for weapons, it would have avoided this issue. The presence of assault weapons puts guests and employees at risk, and the casino should have taken all appropriate measures to prevent such a situation from occurring.

If Mandalay Bay did nothing wrong, it would be liable for the death of over 500 people. The hotel did not call the police immediately upon learning about the shooting. Without a police response, the resort could not have stopped the shooting, which took ten to twelve minutes. That six-minute delay could have contributed to the deaths of over 500 people. Furthermore, the hotel isn’t responsible for the deaths of the victims.

The Mandalay Bay lawsuit filed against MGM would be extremely expensive.

The hotel would be required to pay $800 million to settle all claims and cover costs. The winning settlement would be based on the fact that the resort did not take the necessary measures to stop the shooting, which was not its fault. Despite a large number of victims, the casino may still have a lot to answer for. The verdict would likely be a major blow to MGM.

The Mandalay Bay lawsuit is likely to continue in state court. This will force MGM to reconsider its defense strategy. In a state court suit, MGM may be able to settle for a small amount. However, in federal court, MGM is trying to avoid a trial because it knows its defendants cannot handle violent criminals. The hotel should also pay for any damages caused by the shooting, as this could potentially lead to jail time for the casino.

This lawsuit is a significant precedent for MGM.

The hotel did not immediately call the police, despite learning of the shooting. The six-minute delay between police arrival and the shooting could have caused over 500 deaths. The resort should be held responsible for the incident, as the shooting could have been prevented if it had called the police. It would have been better for the hotel to call the police in a timely fashion. The victims should have a chance to see if the casino had been prepared for it.

The Mandalay Bay also failed to call the police within a few minutes of learning that there was a shooting. The hotel’s inability to respond to a violent criminal is also problematic. In a federal court, MGM can be held liable for the deaths of over 500 people. In a state court, the casino could be held liable for the actions of the shooter. This means that the hotel should have been called as soon as it learned about the shooting.

Moreover, the Mandalay Bay hotel should have notified the police immediately after learning about the shooting.

The Las Vegas hotel could have avoided the tragedy by contacting the police within the first few minutes. Further, the law firm must provide compensation for the families of the deceased and their survivors. The lawyers can also ask for compensation from MGM. They have a lot to lose. The company is not responsible for the actions of the gunman.

The Mandalay Bay lawsuit is a big case. It will involve many plaintiffs and dozens of defendants. In a state court, Mandalay Bay will not have any knowledge of the shooting. Moreover, the casino will have no idea of the potential damages of the suit. This is one reason why the plaintiffs should consult with an attorney. They will help them with their medical bills, but they may also seek money from MGM.
