A California judge ruled Thursday that a screenplay supervisor was once employed for the now-scuttled Western film rust can go after actor with punitive damages claims Alec Baldwin fired a loaded gun at the supervisor last year.

Mom Mitchellthe screenwriter, sued the defendants Rust Movie Productions, LLC, Thomasville Pictures, LLC and individuals RyanSmith, Langley Cheneywrote the Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Michael E Whitaker in a resolution dealing only with these limited defendants. Other defendants, including Baldwin, were also named in Mitchell’s original filing. Prominent Lawyer Gloria Alled is the plaintiff’s lead counsel.

Mitchell’s lawsuit in late November alleged (1) physical harm, (2) intentional infliction of emotional distress, and (3) intentional infliction of harm. The lawsuit alleged on-set filming that took the life of the cameraman Halina Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza left Mitchell with serious physical and mental injuries. It bombasticly claimed that “Baldwin decided to play Russian roulette with a loaded gun without checking it and without the gunsmith doing so.” Various defendants later argued that the claim was a rhetorical phrase used in relation to the facts is completely inaccurate.

The above defendants — not including Baldwin — collectively attempted to have Mitchell’s request for punitive damages struck out by a motion that was unique and independent of attempts by the other myriad defendants to obtain a full parole. However, a judge contradicted the attempt, keeping Mitchell’s “prayer” alive for such damages. Thus, Mitchell’s case will clear further hurdles in litigation.

The judge referred to Smith, Cheney and the rust and the Thomasville Corporate Defendants, as the “moved defendants,” who have filed an immediate motion to have the punitive damages prayer dropped at issue in this particular judgment.

“Here the mobile defendants argue that the plaintiffs’ allegations of their failure to take reasonable precautions to prevent the firing of the gun are conclusive and do not rise to the level of ‘despicable, base, despicable, pathetic, pathetic or loathsome conduct.’ , to establish despicable conduct on their part,” Judge Whitaker wrote.

Mitchell, of course, opposed the defendants’ characterization of her lawsuit as flawed. She said she was pleading “willful acts and/or omissions” that demonstrated the “complete disregard” of the defendants [their] Consequences” in a manner sufficient to support punitive damages, according to Judge Whitaker’s summary of the litigation.

The judge’s decision was based on the briefs and was not a final decision on the matter.

“For plea purposes, the court finds that the first amended complaint alleges facts sufficient to establish despicable conduct by the movable defendants in willful and knowing disregard for the rights or safety of others,” said Justice Whitaker.

The judge found that Mitchell pointed out “the occurrence of previous safety issues” on the set. These issues alerted the defendants to “severe issues related to on-set firearm safety that endangered the cast and crew,” which the defendants “ignored and led to.” [the defendants] Decision not to search for and/or remove live ammunition from weapons used on set.”

The judge continued as follows, but we have omitted the legal citations:

Specifically, Plaintiff alleges: “Prior to the incident, there had been gunshot errors on set, including, but not limited to, by [Baldwin] stunt double and a props master who accidentally shot herself in the foot.” Plaintiff also alleges ammunition, including the gun fired by Baldwin, was regularly left unattended during filming prior to the incident and loaded firearms were used by crew members for Target practice by crew members has been used against safety protocols that the mobile suspects were supposed to have but failed to enforce. Finally, Plaintiff alleges that the Moving Defendants intentionally implemented a low-budget and cost-cutting program known for creating unsafe conditions for film production crews, which resulted in the Moving Defendants enforcing basic safety protocols regarding the dangerous use of firearms not guaranteed.

“Accordingly, the Court finds that the plaintiffs’ allegations in the first amended complaint depict allegedly despicable conduct by the mobile defendants in willful and knowing disregard for the rights or safety of others sufficient to withstand a motion to strike,” the judge essentially concluded a reaffirmation of his previous point.

The judge then ordered the defendants to file a response to the complaint — generally a point-by-point yes or no answer to the plaintiff’s numbered allegations — within 20 days.
