Attorney Rachel Sheppard who was shot 3 TIMES in a chest sought this order to protect evidence.


LAS VEGAS (KSNV NEWS3LV) — Mandalay Bay and its corporate owner MGM Resorts have been ordered not to destroy anything that could be considered evidence in a civil negligence trial over events related to the Route 91 music festival.
The order was sought by attorneys who represent Rachel Sheppard, a California woman who survived the attack, despite being shot in the chest three times.

Nothing from Mandalay Bay that could be considered evidence can be destroyed. Or so says judge Make Denton in the order.



The order, granted by Judge Mark Denton, restrains Mandalay Bay from destroying anything of evidentiary value until another hearing set for Oct. 30 at 9 a.m. That’s when MGM will have a chance to argue against the ruling, before a possible ruling to would make the order permanent.


Looks like the surveillance cams set up by the shooter and that he altered the room are a concern. The law suit also alleges that Man Bay contributed to the shooting.




.
There’s evidence that’s coming out about surveillance cameras that he may have set up himself, evidence about ways that he may have altered his room or that hallway,” he says.

The lawsuit alleges that negligence on the part of Mandalay Bay, and MGM Resorts, contributed to the shooting massacre that claimed 58 lives and injured more than 500 people.

If they were going to destroy evidence I'm sure they already have.

That's what I thought. But there has to be a reason the judge agreed to grant the order. The story says Man Bay has a chance to argue against the order on Oct 30th.

Corp negligence? What else could there be?

The attorney was shot 3 times in the chest, so I think she may have been a little busy to gain the order at an earlier date.

If the destroy video evidence there is of course time stamps so...that would be an instant win.

I am always amazed that this is standard procedure issued for such a large crime scene especially involving a Federal investigation...

Is there any chance we'll see any undoctored video evidence from Mandalay Bay cameras? Seems highly unlikely, given that we've already been told no cameras in hallway, stairwell, etc...

It would be interesting to know if they have kept the floor/room secure up to now. Once they leave the scene nothing is admissible in court I would think. I'm not in law enforcement but a firefighter. On house fires once you leave the scene with nobody there, it's all inadmissible.
If you found gasoline a day later, any lawyer would rip that apart by saying anybody could have poured that out there after the fact. Even our vent fans get brought up. Also drunk drivers leaving the scene can claim they ran home and downed some whiskey for pain. I've seen that scenario myself.
I would hope they have kept it secure. If not, well, the cover up has begun!

Heard a lawyer say keep a 5th in the car, if you get in a fender bender while drunk, drink some of the 5th. And then justice will ensue.

I would think MGM/MandalayBay had all the "evidence" turned over to investigators by Oct 2nd ?



Another smokescreen for the "official" story.

There are cameras EVERYWHERE.
Its Vegas.
IT WAS ABOVE A CASINO. (133,000 sq ft Casino to boot)

This whole idea of them not having footage is a lie.
Having personal cell phones manipulated is outrageous.

This entire debacle stinks to high Heaven.

There has to be a bunch of close circuit footage. Maybe he should have cheated at black jack, then there would be footage.

Well of course there is cameras. Nobody is denying that. There is a ton in the Casino. At the entrance. At the check in/check out desks and in all the elevators. There is just no cameras on the hotel floors or in the fire escape stairwells. This is a fact so I don't know what you think your calling "bull" on?

As horrendous as this crime is it is only a minuscule fraction of gambling related crime; the odds in organized gambling have to be rigged in order to cover expenses and profits, yet they try to convince people they can beat the system so they can scam them. It doesn't take a lot of searching which I tried on the internet to find an enormous amount of murders or studies showing this including at the Trump Casinos The media gets an enormous amount of the loot in the form of advertisers and politicians get their cut in the form of campaign contributions so the majority of Casino violence is swept under the rug and only reported where few people look for it!
