Zurich Insurance is the subject of a lawsuit from a major hotel chain looking to claim damages for an active shooter event two years ago that left 58 people dead and 850 injured.

According to its lawsuit against the insurer, MGM Resorts International said that more than 4,000 people are seeking damages from the company related to the Las Vegas Strip mass shooting incident in 2017.

“MGM is aware of in excess of 4,000 claimants who are seeking compensation from MGM for their claims arising out of the (shooting),” the lawsuit read. “MGM disputes any liability arising out of the event.”

The hotel company alleges Zurich has failed to pay the promised legal costs and thus breached its contract.
