Alec Baldwin Hires Los Angeles Attorney for ‘Rust’ Civil Suits
Alec Baldwin has engaged the services of former Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron S. Dyer of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman for civil suits related to the “Rust” shooting, Variety has confirmed. The L.A.-based Dyer will represent Baldwin, Rust Movie Productions and other production companies involved in the film.

Baldwin, who was both starring in and serving as producer on the independent Western movie “Rust,” fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on Oct. 21 near Santa Fe, N.M., after being told a prop gun was safe. The gun contained at least one live round, which killed Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza.

Two lawsuits have been filed so far — one by script supervisor Mamie Mitchell, who said she suffered “physical and emotional injuries” when Baldwin shot the film’s cinematographer. The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, names several crew members in addition to Baldwin and the film’s producers.
