If the possible murder suspect thinks the criminal case is going to go away with his recent settlement, he is wrong.
Also, I hope there was more than just profits coming the way of a family member because there won’t be any from the film.
Alec Baldwin reaches settlement with Halyna Hutchins’ family
The family of Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer killed on the “Rust” movie set in 2021, and Alec Baldwin have reached an undisclosed settlement in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against the actor and others, according to a statement released by the actor’s attorney.
“We have reached a settlement, subject to court approval, for our wrongful death case against the producers of Rust, including Alec Baldwin and Rust Movie Productions, LLC. As part of that settlement, our case will be dismissed. The filming of Rust, which I will now executive produce, will resume with all the original principal players on board in January 2023. I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame (to the producers or Mr. Baldwin). All of us believe Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I am grateful that the producers and the entertainment community have come together to pay tribute to Halyna’s final work,” Hutchins said in a statement.
“Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son. We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation,” Alec Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas of Quinn Emanuel, said in a statement.
A spokesperson for the Santa Fe District Attorney told CNN in a statement that the settlement agreement would not impact the ongoing criminal investigation in the case.
“While civil suits are settled privately and often involve financial awards, criminal cases deal only in facts,” Heather Brewer, spokesperson for the Office of the First Judicial District Attorney of New Mexico, said in a statement. “If the facts and evidence warrant criminal charges under New Mexico law then charges will be brought. No one is above the law.” – Source
