Attorneys for Alec Baldwin and other producers of the move Rust are asking a court to dismiss a civil lawsuit that was filed by a script supervisor who was on set when Baldwin fatally shot Halyna Hutchins.

In a filing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, the attorneys said that the claim made by Mamie Mitchell should be thrown out because there was no evidence that Baldwin or any of the producers intended harm.

“Despite Plaintiff’s attempt to label claims as intentional, nothing about Plaintiff’s allegations suggest that any of Defendants intentionally committed harmful conduct,” the filing said.

Mitchell claimed in a lawsuit filed in November that Baldwin should have checked the Colt .45 revolver he was holding to make sure it did not include live ammunition.

Baldwin has said that the assistant director had told him that the gun was safe to use and that he did not pull the trigger. Mitchell, who claims to have been in the line of fire, alleges assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and deliberate infliction of harm and is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
