Alec Baldwin Is Being Sued by Halyna Hutchins' Family, Who Say He Never Apologized to Them

Alec Baldwin is facing another lawsuit in connection to the death of Halyna Hutchins.

The 64-year-old actor was recently charged with involuntary manslaughter for Halyna‘s death after she was accidentally shot dead on the set of the movie Rust.

The actor was holding the gun which discharged and killed Halyna, though he has claimed he did not pull the trigger. Prosecutors say that Alec shouldn’t have pointed the gun as “the first rule of gun safety is never to point a gun at someone you don’t intend on shooting.”

Now, Halyna‘s family is suing Alec and the producers of Rust.

“We have filed a lawsuit today in Los Angeles County’s superior court against Alec Baldwin, producers of Rust, and other defendants who may have been responsible for the tragic death of Halyna Hutchins,” the family’s lawyer Gloria Allred said (via Vulture). “The lawsuit today [alleges] battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and loss of consortium.”

She added, “There has been no settlement for [the plaintiffs]. As a matter of fact, there has been no outreach to them by Mr. Baldwin to even say he was sorry.”

Halyna‘s sister Svetlana said, “To lose my sister, at least personally for me, was a horrible experience, and it is one of the biggest losses of my life. Even more devastating is to see the utter suffering of our parents and how their health has sharply declined.”

“Is it for this reason that I would like those who are at fault, for somebody, to carry that responsibility,” she added. “Not just someone, but that someone who is truly responsible for this. I believe to let this go and leave this unpunished is unallowable.”

An interesting detail was learned this week about the charge Alec is facing.
