Alec Baldwin and his fellow "Rust" producers have filed to dismiss one of the lawsuits taking aim at them. In a motion obtained by Fox News Digital, Baldwin and other producers have requested that the court toss the complaint "without leave to amend." The suit was originally filed in November by script supervisor Mamie Mitchell – who is being represented by famed attorney Gloria Allred following the events that led to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injury of director Joel Souza.
In her suit, Mitchell claimed assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and deliberate infliction of harm.
