Bay east suing the victims of the Las Vegas massacres of a strange and this story got little beat some people upset abet. Tonya. What the heck is going raw meat or what why are they talking this. That's you know that this administration Reid has done in nearly equipment and you read it again. Because it looked. I haven't read it wrong the first time honestly when I saw this event probably I think other people into you know. Com here's the deal in the resorts international is definitely lost its. In Nevada and California. And pretty it is in federal court in what they're saying basically is paying. Would like to have a judge to think they don't have any liability. In the Los biggest massacre last October the one that killed fifteen people and injured hundreds more. On even know that that's what happened there at the mentally date which is owned by MGM resorts. They are saying that under anti thanks. This is kind of what fierce fighting congress passed the fact after nine elevenths. And they were trying to encourage private sector to have a security technologies in civilian settings. Via that kind of thing and let them team GM folks are saying bull you know they work. Going along with him and that's what they were doing in these security firm that they hired was that had been approved by the DA can't. And so therefore they believe they don't deny ability but the headline just quite shocking when you see you know. MGM is victims of the massacre that if that makes a lot. Well you you wonder if the boot from strictly from a marketing and PR standpoint that they should even do that because they just. It just looks terrible for Mandalay today. Eight were in had taken that defected to put this statement out com. Net. And the exact wording of the statement because it was it would kinda depressing as well. I'd say the company is trying to avoid com yours has drawn out litigation which would not benefit the victims. Today. What do quick solutions. You know almost sounds like we're doing her own good but that's not really not what. Think that it just doesn't is just not sitting well the whole Lotta people because it just seemed pretty extreme. Well listen it's interesting story a lot more. Underneath that headline but what a bit misleading I am really misleading against the got to dig a little deeper on this stuff yeah. They get done Tonya. Mentally beta until the ensuing victims of the Las Vegas massacre its of of course we almost called a legal technicality. There. And now they may have many trying to find a way to exercise your legal issues without suing the shooting victim assuming. People would bench. Yeah somebody in New York hotel and they're trying to figure out different way to get about doing now be interesting to see how judgment to you know.
