U.S. judge dismisses wrongful death lawsuit against Resorts World Manila

A Las Vegas court has dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of two victims in the 2017 attack on Resorts World Manila.

The June 2017 attack was carried out by a lone gunman who entered the casino and set fire to gaming tables, killing 37.
