In an article published by LAW360 on November 22, Partner Jackson “Jad” Dial is quoted discussing the recent filing of two California lawsuits by crew members who witnessed the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the film set of a movie with Hollywood superstar Alec Baldwin.

In the suits, “Rust” chief lighting technician and script supervisor are both seeking emotional damages over the Oct. 21 incident in which actor and producer Alec Baldwin shot Hutchins and the film’s director.
