Alec Baldwin lawyers have applied to throw out the second lawsuit against Baldwin over the death of Halyna HUTCHINS, the cinematographer.
The allegations made by Mamie Mitchell as script supervisor did not suggest that anyone knew the prop had live ammunition.
Mitchell files a complaint alleging that Mitchell was assaulted and inflicted emotional distress. Baldwin, according to Mitchell, “chosen Russian Roulette without first checking the loaded gun.”
Baldwin’s attorneys responded to the claims in court documents that were submitted to an LA judge. They said nothing about the allegations of plaintiffs suggesting that the prop gun was loaded with live ammunition.
On November 11, Rust was shot to death on Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Reps denied that they knew of any live ammunition in prop, as per Mamie Mitchell’s allegations.
Mitchell sues Baldwin for firing the weapon even though it was not required by the Western’s script.
According to lawyers, nothing in the allegations of plaintiffs suggests that the prop gun was intended for live ammunition.
“Moreover, the allegations of plaintiff do not suggest that any defendant knew that the prop gun had live ammunition.
“The absence of such accusations makes complete sense, because the incident seems to be unprecedented in filmmaking.”
On November 11, Rust was shot to death on set in Santa Fe (New Mexico). Pictured are Baldwin (second left), with cast members, and Hutchins (centre). Baldwin was a married father-of-one aged 42 years old.
The aftermath of Rust’s shooting is shown here. It was canned after Hutchins’ passing.
Court records show that these submissions were submitted to Los Angeles Superior Court on January 24.
Gloria Allred, Gloria Mitchell’s lawyer, previously accused Baldwin of “Russian Roulette” when he fired his gun without first checking it or having it checked by an armorer.
Serge Svetnoy is also taking him to court over another incident.
In addition to Baldwin, nearly twenty-six defendants are named in both suits. These include David Halls who handed Baldwin his gun, and Hannah Gutierrez Reed (who was responsible for weapons).
