More than 50 victims and survivors of the June 2016 massacre at a Florida nightclub sued the gunman’s employer and widow on Wednesday, blaming them for failing to prevent the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The lawsuit filed in the U.S. Southern District of Florida accused the security firm that hired shooter Omar Mateen of ignoring his comments supporting violence prior to the rampage that killed 49 and injured dozens at a gay nightclub in Orlando. The lawsuit accuses Mateen’s widow, Noor Salman, of conspiring in the attack by assisting with his purchase of firearms and surveillance of the Pulse nightclub.
