In what will surely go down in history as one of the most heinous and despicable lawsuits of all time, the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino is doing the unthinkable.

Back in October 2017, Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 35th floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, taking aim at a country music festival across the street.  In the 22,000 person panic, Paddock murdered over 50 innocent people, and injured over 500 more.  Many of the injured found themselves trampled or otherwise hurt while attempting to flee the scene.

In the ensuing months since that fateful night, Americans have been routinely frustrated with the authorities investigating the case, claiming that major bits of information were being withheld from the public that would otherwise create a clearer understanding of what exactly occurred in that hotel room.

Paddock, much to the chagrin of a number of conspiracy theorists from Reddit, was found to have been acting as a possible illegal arms dealer during the time of the his rampage, which explains his access to the high powered cache of weapons used in the attack.

Now, however, a strange wrinkle has occurred in the case, with the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino going on an offensive offensive.

The company that owns the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue in Las Vegas where dozens were killed and hundreds of others injured in a mass shooting has taken legal action — against the victims.

MGM Resorts International filed complaints in Nevada and California federal courts last Friday. The company does not seek compensation from survivors of the October 2017 rampage; instead, they insist MGM was not at fault for the massacre in the first place, citing a 2002 federal act.

That legislation, the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies, or Safety Act, protects corporations in the event of mass attacks committed on U.S. soil, provided services certified by the Department of Homeland Security were deployed.

But because MGM had hired Contemporary Services Corporation, a security vendor for the concert whose services had been certified by the Department of Homeland Security, it claims it followed the requirements of the Safety Act.

Of course, it didn’t help that a video was released just days ago in which the security team and police who arrived early on the scene of the shooting were seen meandering in the hallway while Paddock unloaded magazine after magazine into the unsuspecting crowd of country music fans.
