Orlando Shooter's Wife Dropped from Pulse Victims' Lawsuit

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The wife of the gunman in the Orlando nightclub shooting has been dropped from a civil lawsuit brought by survivors of the massacre and victims' families.

An amended complaint filed last week in state court in South Florida dropped Noor Salman from the lawsuit, leaving only the security firm for which gunman Omar Mateen was employed as a defendant.The lawsuit alleges negligence and wrongful death by security firm G4S for maintaining Mateen's firearms license even though he had made threats against co-workers.

Salman is facing two charges in federal court.Plaintiffs' attorneys didn't respond to calls and an email seeking further explanation.Forty-nine people were killed during the massacre last year.

G4S has said it will vigorously defend itself and that the lawsuit is without merit.
