Alec Baldwin seeks dismissal of civil suit

26/1/2022 6:33
        Attorneys for Alec Baldwin
        and other producers of the movie "Rust" are asking a court to
        dismiss a civil lawsuit filed by a script supervisor who was on
        the set when the actor fatally shot a cinematographer.
        
        In a filing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, the
        attorneys said the claim by Mamie Mitchell should be thrown out
        because there was no evidence that Baldwin or any of the
        producers intended harm. Baldwin was the lead actor and a
        producer of the independent film, a Western.
        
        "Despite Plaintiff’s attempt to label claims as
        intentional, nothing about Plaintiff’s allegations suggest that
        any of Defendants intentionally committed harmful conduct," the
        filing said.
        
        Mitchell claimed in a lawsuit filed in November https://www.reuters.com/world/us/crew-member-rust-movie-says-script-never-called-gun-be-fired-hollywood-reporter-2021-11-17
        that Baldwin should have checked the Colt .45 revolver he was
        holding to make sure it did not include live ammunition. Baldwin
        has said the assistant director told him the gun was "cold," or
        safe to use and that he did not pull the trigger Mitchell, who
        said she was in the line of fire, alleges assault, intentional
        infliction of emotional distress, and deliberate infliction of
        harm and is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed in
        Los Angeles Superior Court.
        
        Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel
        Souza was wounded when the gun discharged as Baldwin was
        rehearing on the New Mexico film set.
        
        Mitchell, who said she was in the line of fire, alleges
        assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and
        deliberate infliction of harm, and is seeking unspecified
        damages in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
        
        Gloria Allred, Mitchell's attorney, said on Tuesday that the
        claim should be allowed to proceed.
        
        The producers are "trying to avoid explaining their conduct
        before a judge and a jury in a court of law," she said in a
        statement.
