Route 91 Harvest Festival Mass Shooting Incident - October 1, 2017 : According to recent court filings, entities involved in litigation relating to the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting incident have cited the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002, 6 U.S.C. §§ 441-444 (the “SAFETY Act”). The SAFETY Act provides liability protections relating to the deployment of “qualified anti-terrorism technologies” in defense against, response to, or recovery from an “act of terrorism.” Pursuant to 6 U.S.C. § 444(2), the Secretary of Homeland Security possesses the authority to determine whether an act was an “act of terrorism” for purposes of the SAFETY Act. To date, the Secretary of Homeland Security has not made any such determination regarding the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting incident. The matter is currently under review within the Department of Homeland Security.
