Almost two years after a massacre at an Orlando nightclub left 49 people dead and 53 injured, some of the surviving victims were filing a lawsuit in federal court saying the city and police didn’t do enough to try to stop the shooter. More than 35 victims have signed on as plaintiffs, accusing the city and its officers of violating the constitutional rights of those who were injured and killed on June 12, 2016, when Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse.

Mateen pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group during a three-hour standoff before he was killed in a shoot-out with police.
