Alec Baldwin was holding a fake pistol when it went off on the Rust set in New Mexico in October 2021, killing Halyna Hutchins. Her family is suing for damages for claimed violence, deliberate infliction of mental distress, and carelessness.
A new legal case against Alec Baldwin has been filed by the family of the director of photography Halyna Hutchins.
Ms. Hutchins passed died in October 2021 after a pretend pistol that Alec Baldwin was holding went off on the Rust movie set in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
For claimed violence, deliberate infliction of mental distress, carelessness, and loss of consortium, the Hollywood star is being sued.
When a plaintiff seeks financial compensation for harm done to particular relationships that they are mutually dependent upon, this is referred to as loss of consortium.
The complaint is the Rust movie production business.
At a news conference on Thursday, prominent US attorney Gloria Allred, who will represent the family, revealed the new case.
According to Ms. Allred, “It is obvious to us that the relationships of every one of our customers have been harmed, and they will not be able to enjoy life as much as they did while their darling Halyna was alive.
“The bright spot in their life was Halyna. Of course, the awful loss of their daughter and sister is painful for everyone of our three customers.”
Alec Baldwin is scheduled to make her initial court appearance in a separate case on February 24 to answer to charges related to the incident.
He is accused of two counts of involuntary manslaughter, along with Rust’s armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed.
The special prosecutor in the case has been challenged by Alec Baldwin’s attorneys because of what they claim is her “unconstitutional” status as a politician.
