MGM to Pay $735M to 2017 Las Vegas Shooting Victims
The survivors and family members of victims in the 2017 Las Vegas shooting massacre that left 58 dead and over 800 wounded have settled with MGM Resorts for $735 million dollars. Over 2,500 plaintiffs were named in the suit.
The massacre – the worst in American history- occurred during a Jason Aldean performance at a country music festival in Las Vegas, where a man fired over 1,100 rounds from the 32nd floor of the MGM-owned Mandalay Bay Hotel into a crowd of over 22,000. The shooter took his own life before he could be apprehended.
The victims’ lawyer said his victims appreciate the settlement saying “MGM Resorts is a valued member of the Las Vegas community and this settlement represents good corporate citizenship on their part.”
