MGM Resorts sues FTC, agency chair over cyberattack investigation

Home » MGM Resorts sues FTC, agency chair over cyberattack investigation

MGM Resorts International filed a lawsuit Monday against the Federal Trade Commission and its top officer, Chairwoman Lina M. Khan, claiming the agency violated the company’s Fifth Amendment right to due process while investigating a September cyberattack against the company.

In the four-count action, MGM also alleges the FTC failed to follow its own conflict-of-interest guidelines.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks an injunction to stop the FTC from seeking a civil investigative demand in its investigation of MGM related to the cyberattack unless Khan disqualifies herself from the matter. The demand is an administrative subpoena that allows federal agencies to request large amounts of information from private companies without going through court procedures.
