Halyna Hutchins: Alec Baldwin faces new lawsuit from relatives of slain photographer | The Art News

Alec Baldwin is facing a new civil lawsuit from the relatives of cinematographer Halina Hutchins.

Ms. Hutchins died in October 2021 after a prop gun held by Baldwin went off on the set of the film “Rusty” in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Hollywood actor was charged with battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and financial loss.

Rust Film Productions is embroiled in a lawsuit.

Losing the consortium is when plaintiffs seek damages for certain relationships on which they depended.

Gloria Allred, a prominent U.S. attorney who will represent the family, announced the new lawsuit at a news conference Thursday.

Ms Allred said: “We are well aware that all of our clients’ relationships are damaged and they will not be able to enjoy life as much as they did when their precious Halyna was still alive.

“Halyna was a shining light in their lives. Of course, the tragedy of losing their daughter and sister is heartbreaking for all three of our clients.”

In a separate lawsuit, Baldwin is scheduled to make his first U.S. court appearance on Feb. 24 to face criminal charges stemming from the incident.

Along with Rust’s armourer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, he faces two counts of involuntary manslaughter.
