Vegas Shooter Sued Cosmopolitan Resort After Slip-and-Fall Injury in 2012
The lawsuit was later tossed out of court when an arbitrator determined it was "without merit."
The gunman who carried out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history is seen on newly discovered video from a 2012 incident.
Stephen Paddock was examined by paramedics after claiming he was injured in a slip-and-fall accident at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
He later sued the resort as a result of his injuries.
The casino’s attorney, Martin Kravitz, described Paddock as “kind of slovenly in appearance. He was in shorts, not the cleanest-looking shirt, wearing these old, old flip-flops and he was carrying in a paper bag, a beer.”
Paddock said he was on his way to a suite for high rollers when he fell to the floor and staggered back to his feet.
He asked for more than $32,000 in medical expenses and damages, but an arbitrator determined his claim was “without merit.”
Kravitz said Paddock fell because “he slipped out of his flip-flops and went to the floor.”
