MGM Resorts International’s public image took a bruising on social media following lawsuit against victims
MGM Resorts International has filed federal lawsuits against more than 1,000 Las Vegas mass shooting victims in an effort to avoid liability.
A former employee of The Venetian suspected in a deadly shooting at a company picnic in April was transferred to Las Vegas police custody early Tuesday after fighting extradition from a Texas jail for nearly two months.
The Venetian employees shot at a company picnic Sunday had worked at the hotel-casino since its 1999 opening and were “part of the fabric” of the property, according to its operator.
Mandalay Bay hotel staff had more than 10 interactions with Stephen Paddock in the days leading up to his Oct. 1 massacre of 58 people on the Strip, MGM Resorts International said Friday.
Just days after the Oct. 1 Strip massacre, a Nevada Supreme Court panel issued a decision that could sharpen questions about the adequacy of security at Mandalay Bay and increase its liability.
Serena Talledo and other Mandalay Bay employees say they were told this week that MGM Resorts International is reducing their schedules as a result of the company’s hardships in the aftermath of the Oct. 1 mass shooting.
Executives at MGM assembled quickly on news of the shooting on the night of Oct. 1, making sure that employees and guests had needed support. By 8 a.m. on Oct. 2, MGM coordinated with Clark County to bring about 40 counselors onto the Strip.
In a statement released late Tuesday, MGM Resorts International disputed Sheriff Joe Lombardo’s revised timeline of the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Strip.
