Judge Indicates He’s Poised to Pare `Rust’ Script Supervisor’s Suit


A judge said in a written tentative ruling Tuesday that he is poised to pare some claims in a lawsuit brought by the script supervisor for the film “Rust” against Alec Baldwin’s production company stemming from the accidental shooting of two crew members, but not the causes of action against Baldwin himself.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Whitaker also says he is inclined to deny a defense motion to strike Mamie Mitchell’s claim for punitive damages against the 64-year-old performer and his firm, El Dorado Pictures Inc. The judge was scheduled to hear arguments later Tuesday before issuing a final ruling.

Mitchell maintains she was standing nearby when Baldwin accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded the film’s director, Joel Souza, on Oct. 21, 2021, in a replica church on the “Rust” movie set in New Mexico, leaving her with physical and emotional damages.
