judge stops script supervisor Rust claim

A judge ruled Friday that "Rust" script supervisor Mamie Mitchell can't bring most of her complaint against the film's producers about a fatal shooting on the set.

According to court documents, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael E. Whitaker ruled that two of the three claims that Mitchell

made against the producers could not go forward. These were for assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The decision is the same as one that was made in July. In August, Mitchell filed a second complaint that was changed. Still, the producers could be sued for negligence,

which is a less serious claim that can't lead to punitive damages. People are paying close attention to the lawsuit because it is one of several civil cases

against the producers of the western in which Alec Baldwin accidentally fired a prop gun, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and hurting director Joel Souza.

Gaffer Serge Svetnoy and the Hutchins family in New Mexico have also sued Baldwin and the producers.
