Alec Baldwin Thought He Was Untouchable for ‘Rust’ Shooting

Uncategorized

On Tuesday, a judge ruled that Mamie Mitchell, the script supervisor on the movie “Rust,” could proceed with her lawsuit against Alec Baldwin after he fatally shot the film’s cinematographer in October 2021.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Mitchell can pursue her allegations of assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence against Baldwin for firing a prop weapon and fatally wounding cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael E. Whitaker ruled.

In his ruling, Whitaker noted, “For pleading purposes, the Court finds the second amended complaint alleges facts sufficient to establish despicable conduct carried out by [the defendants] with a willful and conscious disregard of the rights or safety of others.”

Mitchell and her team had previous claims against Baldwin, which were dismissed by Whitaker in September. But now they are celebrating this recent ruling.

Mitchell’s attorney, Gloria Allred, said in a statement, “We are pleased that the trial court’s tentative ruling has overruled Mr. Baldwin’s demurrer and permitted our client, Mamie Mitchell, to continue her lawsuit against Alec Baldwin to recover damages for the personal injuries she sustained.”

In August, he made a bizarre comment during an interview with CNN that seemed to suggest that former President Donald Trump and others who questioned his innocence were guilty — rather than himself.

Balwin has also claimed that he did not pull the trigger that killed Hutchins.
