Bump stock maker being dropped from case filed by Las Vegas shooting victims
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Bump stock maker Slide Fire is about to be dropped as a defendant in one of the first civil cases filed in the Las Vegas shooting.
Attorney Craig Eiland, who is part of a team of lawyers representing more than 75 victims, says it’s impossible to prove to what degree bump stock devices added to death and injury.
Slide Fire’s bump stock product allows a rifle to fire ammunition near the speed of an automatic firearm.
The amended complaint will be filed on Friday, and will include the addition of CSC, a crowd management company hired to handle security for the Route 91 concert.
Legal teams are also negotiating with MGM and Mandalay Bay to inspect the 32nd floor crime scene.
“Right now, Las Vegas is known to have largest mass shooting in this country,” says Brian Nettles, a Henderson attorney who represents several victims from California.
“It is our goal in this litigation, for this to be remembered as the last mass shooting in this country.”
Attorneys inspected the concert venue crime scene on Oct. 31, they are negotiating for access to the hotel property before the Dec. 25 Christmas holiday.
