Family of Cinematographer Killed By Alec Baldwin Prepares Lawsuit

Things are about to get even uglier.

Published

on

Hollywood has been described, at times, as a bit of a cesspool, and it’s easy to see why.  Not only is the entire industry plagued with wealth, (a surefire ingredient for connivery and backstabbing), but it also dabbles heavily in power, influence, and fame; similarly addictive and wanton things that can turn even the most well-adjusted person into something else entirely.

And so, as the fallout continues to amass in the case of Alec Baldwin’s fatal shooting of a cinematographer on his latest film project, the news has been filled with headlines where it’s very obviously every man and woman for themselves.  The writing was on the wall:  This was going to get ugly, and it was only a matter of time.

Well, that time has come.

Halyna Hutchins’ husband has retained legal representation and reportedly plans to file a wrongful death suit following the accidental shooting incident on the set of “Rust.”

Hutchins was killed on the set of the indie-western in New Mexico on Oct. 21 after actor Alec Baldwin fired a gun during rehearsal that he was told was “cold.” The cinematographer was killed and director Joel Souza was left wounded. In the wake of the tragedy, authorities are investigating the incident and whether or not criminal charges are in order for any of the parties involved.

Meanwhile, a representative for Hutchins’ family confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday that her husband, Matt, has retained the legal counsel of Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi with Brian Panish acting as lead lawyer.

The statement noted that the lawyers did not plan to issue any official statement at this time regarding what their plans are in terms of any kind of legal case. However, The group’s website notes that they specialize in personal injury and wrongful death suits.

Matt Hutchins is also a lawyer, which certainly seems to promote the prospect that he’ll be bring some serious litigious heat to the proceedings.

Alec Baldwin, who was also acting as a producer and facilitator of the project, may very well find himself with civil culpability in the case, even if Halyna Hutchins’ death is ruled an accident.

SEE IT: Man Arrested After Holiday-Themed Arson at Fox News

Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident. 

Published

To say that Americans are politically agitated would be the understatement of the last 140 years, and the evidence continues to pile up in the latter stages of 2021.

We’re at each other’s throats, to be blunt about it.  Not since the Civil War has the nation so viciously despised itself, and the violence inherent to these sorts of conflicts has just begun.

This week’s flagship fracas comes to us from Fox News, where the network’s beaming bastion of the holiday season was torched overnight.

The massive All-American Christmas Tree outside Fox News’ New York City headquarters was seriously damaged in a fire early Wednesday and police say they arrested the man accused of sparking the flames.

Fox News security spotted the suspect, later identified as Craig Tamanaha, climbing the 50-foot-tall tree at the center of Fox Square just after midnight. The Sixth Avenue and 48th Street location is in the heart of Midtown.

NYPD officers arrived at the scene and saw the suspect running from the location. They took him into custody before filing charges that included criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and arson. City firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze.

Images from the incident were soon blasted all over social media.

Chris Cuomo Preparing Massive Lawsuit Aimed at Former Employer

But CNN INSTANTLY put the kibosh on it!

Published

on

Things over at CNN have been rough in recent days, and they certainly aren’t smoothing out anytime soon.

The infotainment network is facing an onslaught of trouble of late, thanks largely to the actions of Chris Cuomo – formerly the top draw at the station – thanks to his inappropriate actions in regard to his brother’s sexual assault scandal during his time as the Governor of New York.

Cuomo has since been fired, and a war of words has erupted between he and his former employer.  Just yesterday it was reported that CNN was rebuking Cuomo’s claims that they were aware of the poor behavior of their primetime star.

Today, Cuomo is setting himself up to sue CNN.

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday.

Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

The network was not entertained by the idea.

But CNN has “no intention of paying [Chris] Cuomo a penny,” an insider said.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source added.

Cuomo has also left his SiriusXM radio program this week, leaving the longtime anchor with no audience to complain to.
