Only in America

Just when you think things can’t get more insane in the States, something reminds you that, yes, they can.

MGM Resorts International, which owns the Mandalay Bay hotel, the Las Vegas joint from which Stephen Paddock fired hundreds of bullets into a crowd last October, killing 58 and injuring 500 more, is suing more than 1,000 victims.

The justification for this absurd legal behaviour is that by doing so, MGM Resorts International hopes that it can fend off legal action by victims against it. According to MGM Resorts, the proper entity for the victims to sue is Contemporary Services Corporation, which was hired to provide security for the concert.
