This is screwy legal mumbo jumbo.

The owner of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas has filed a lawsuit against more than 1,000 victims of a mass shooting that killed 58 people in 2017.

The MGM Resorts International's lawsuit does not seek money and appears to be a judicial bid to avoid liability and dismiss claims against it.

A lawyer for several victims called the lawsuit "outrageous" and "verging on unethical", according to US reports.

MGM Resorts International filed complaints in Nevada and California, arguing it could not be held liable for any deaths, injuries or damages caused during the attack. "Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants," the complaints argue. It says the security company it hired was certified by the Department of Homeland Security and was therefore protected from liability under a 2002 federal act. MGM argues that this protection extends to the hotel giant, as it hired the security firm.

A spokesperson for MGM said in a statement it was not suing victims for any money and was sympathetic.

Robert Eglet, a lawyer for several victims, said the lawsuit "quite frankly verges on unethical".

"I've never seen a more outrageous thing, where they sue the victims in an effort to find a judge they like," he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "It's just really sad that they would stoop to this level."

That's how Deep State to confound black and white because they control the D.O.J..

Trump could openly call hostile country Russia to hacking Hillary's missing email and Russia did follow his order while media call Hillary "treason" for using private server for her email. If you still remember how media did at 2016 election time.
