I believe I understand this right, but I’m not sure. Here is what I discovered in my research regarding the matter…MGM is not suing the victims for money. They are basically asking for a judgement to be made in regards to liability. They are arguing that they should not have to pay the bills that resulted from this event. I would guess mostly medical, and end of life costs. If they win, they just aren’t liable. I’m not sure if primary insurance would pick up the bills after this or how that works.  And they are also doing some legal… Read more »

I wish I had access to someone fluent in Nevada law, but I think my conclusion is..in theory nobody is liable except Stephen Paddock. The hotel bell boys did their job by courting luggage for guests. If this weird rich guy has 30 bags, you move 30 bags. Note that I did say in theory though. The hotel used a Homeland Security approved security team. They did what they were supposed to on that end. Now, were they under staffed? Did they follow protocol? Did the security team follow protocol, the event organizers? I’m not sure if all these other… Read more »
