Lawyers for actor Alec Baldwin filed an arbitration demand on Friday arguing that his Rust film contract protects him from financial responsibility for the shooting that led to Halyna Hutchins’ death on the New Mexico set of the film last year.

The documents also make the claim that it was Hutchins herself who directed Baldwin where to aim the gun he held with which he fired the fatal shot.

Laying partial blame for the shooting on Hutchins, the filing says, “She directed Baldwin to hold the gun higher, to a point where it was directed toward her. She was looking carefully at the monitor and then at Baldwin, and then back again, as she gave these instructions.”

Baldwin’s filing adds that by giving the instructions she gave on the set, it was clear that Hutchins also felt the gun was unloaded — or “cold.”

“In giving and following these instructions, Hutchins and Baldwin shared a core, vital belief: that the gun was ‘cold’ and contained no live rounds,” the filing says.

Baldwin’s filing added that Hutchins agreed when Baldwin asked if should pull back the hammer of the firearm, as the script called for.

They may be shyster lawyers, but the prosecution is going to give them a run for their money. Otherwise, they wouldn't be pursuing it.

There's something there to take him down with, or they would not have proceeded, ya know?
