Alec Baldwin faces second lawsuit over film set shooting

Script supervisor Mamie Mitchell has claimed in a lawsuit that Alec Baldwin recklessly fired a gun when cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot and director Joel Souza was injured.

This is the second lawsuit to be filed against Baldwin in relation to the film set shooting.

The lawsuit claims that Baldwin fired the weapon when it was not called for in the script.

Only last week, the head of lighting on the film set Serge Svetnoy filed a lawsuit against Baldwin, assistant director David Halls and armourer Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

Mitchell’s lawsuit mainly centres around Baldwin’s actions, saying there was no call for Baldwin to point the gun towards Mrs. Hutchins and Mr. Souza nor was there a call to fire it.

The lawsuit also said that Baldwin violated protocol by not checking the firearm more carefully.

Mitchell’s lawyer Gloria Allred stated, “Mr. Baldwin chose to play Russian roulette when he fired a gun without checking it, and without having the armourer do so in his presence”.

The lawsuit also stated that the production’s armourer Hannah Gutierrez Reed had minimal experience and was hired for cost-cutting measures.
