    If it comes to trial, I don't think tha Mandalay Bay will be held liable. There is no way the hotel could reasonably foresee that a guest of the hotel would knock out a window and open fire on a concert. Nor could the hotel do anything more than call the police, tell them they had an active shooter in the building, and could you please send the SWAT team to deal with him. Their own security force is unarmed, I believe; but even if they do have guns, like as not the guns would be pistols carried concealed, hardly capable of combating a nutbar with half a dozen ARs and lord knows how many loaded magazines in a hotel room.

    I suspect the ambulance chasers are gambling, pun intended, on the casino hotel's making a settlement with a class action group rather than getting the bad publicity of a civil trial for weeks on end before the judge says to the bailiff, "Dropkick these disgraces to the legal profession off the courthouse steps for wasting the Court's time with a specious, greedhead lawsuit." Remember how dumb the average American is about the legal system. The ambulance chasers will use those sheeple to make a pile of money by filing a civil action if they can get enough of the concert attendees and the people who were on that floor when the shooting started to make it worth their while.

    I said this days after the shooting. Someone told me, "no, it won't happen."

    That doesn't mean a thing to the ambulance chasers. They make money hand over fist if they win OR they lose. Lawyer's fees, ya know.

    These lawsuits would not have any traction EXCEPT for the lies, denial and what appears to be an attempted coverup of any knowledge of Paddock by Mandalay itself.
