Halyna Hutchins’ Husband to File Wrongful Death Lawsuit as He Hires New Lawyers
Matthew Hutchins, who shares a 9-year-old son named Andros with the late cinematographer, reportedly will name multiple defendants in his wrongful death lawsuit.
AceShowbiz -Hutchins’ husband is seeking justice. A few weeks after the cinematographer was fatally shot by Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust” movie, it was reported that Matthew Hutchins has hired attorneys specializing in wrongful death cases.
TMZ reported that Matthew has hired a Los Angeles-based firm, Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi. According to the firm’s official site, it “has extensive experience with the often complicated lawsuits that arise after an injury or death caused by another’s negligence or misconduct.”
Sources told the outlet that Matthew will file the lawsuit on behalf of himself as well as his and Halyna’s 9-year-old son, Andros. It’s also unveiled that there will be multiple defendants in the suit.
Halyna was accidentally shot by Alec when they were filming at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico on October 21. “The Boss Baby” voice actor also injured the movie director, Joel Souza, who has been discharged from the hospital. The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate Halyna’s death. No criminal charges have yet been filed.
In the wake of the incident, Alec offered his condolences to Halyna’s loved ones via Twitter. The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member also made it clear that he’s “fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred.”
Alec himself has met with Matthew and Andros. In pictures surfacing online, the father of Ireland Baldwin could be seen embracing Matthew and the young boy outside a hotel where they were staying. However, a source claimed that Alec “didn’t look good” during a breakfast with the grieving family.
As for Matthew, he divulged that he had spoken with Alec before they met in person. “I have spoken with Alec Baldwin, and he is being very supportive,” he said one day after the shooting incident. “I don’t think there are words to communicate the situation.”
