Wounded woman drops 'bump stock' maker from Vegas lawsuit

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Attorneys for a California woman wounded in the Oct. 1 mass shooting that killed 58 and left hundreds injured on the Las Vegas Strip have dropped a gun accessories maker from her negligence and damages lawsuit.

One of Rachel Sheppard's lawyers, Craig Eiland, said Thursday the decision to strip Slide Fire Solutions from the case lets him focus claims against hotel owner MGM Resorts International and concert promoter Live Nation Entertainment.

Eiland says he intends to prove neither the corporate owner of the Mandalay Bay resort nor the concert organizer followed proper plans and procedures for an active shooter.

Eiland noted that Texas-based Slide Fire still faces a separate lawsuit that seeks class-action status in Nevada on negligence and product liability claims relating to its "bump stock" weapon modification device.
