Baldwin Sued by Hutchins Family in Wrongful Death Lawsuit 

In a major civil suit, Halyna Hutchins' family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Baldwin and others involved in the production of Rust in February 2022. The lawsuit alleges that Baldwin and the film's producers demonstrated "callous" disregard in the face of safety complaints from crew members. It accuses them of cutting corners on safety procedures to save time and money.

The lawsuit names Baldwin, Rust producers, assistant director Dave Halls, and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed as defendants. It seeks unspecified damages to be determined at trial.
