Baldwin killed a cinematographer when the pistol, loaded with a live bullet, exploded on the set.
The complaint was filed Wednesday in Los Angeles by Mamie Mitchell, who was the script supervisor for the low-budget western made in New Mexico. He names Baldwin and the film producers.
Mitchell claims assault, intentional emotional suffering and deliberate suffering, the Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday, citing a copy of court documents obtained.
Mitchell and his attorney, Gloria Allred, were scheduled to hold a press conference in Los Angeles later Wednesday.
The lawsuit is the second to be filed for the shooting. Santa Fe authorities are still investigating and no criminal charges have been filed.
He said the script provided for three tight camera shots for the scene – one of Baldwin’s eyes, another on a bloodstain, and a third on Baldwin’s chest “as he reached for the holster and removed the weapon. There was nothing in the script about the gun unloaded by the accused Baldwin or any other person, ”the trial said.
Baldwin and the film’s producers could not be reached immediately for comment.
Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on October 21 and director Joel Souza was injured when Baldwin was told a gun was safe with live ammunition, investigators said. Other live tours were also found on the set.
