While awaiting trial for manslaughter, the well-known actor has now attempted to begin a new trial in an effort to have charges dropped regarding the fatal shooting that occurred on the set of “Rust. ” Baldwin’s attorneys filed a motion on Monday to vacate charges connected to the shooting in which Hutchins was killed.

This latest move follows a hearing conducted via Zoom last Friday, where Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer only partially rejected Baldwin’s petition, and a final decision had been scheduled for at least Friday this week. Since Baldwin’s scandal, he has tried multiple times to get his case dismissed on the grounds of mismanagement of crucial evidence, which would be useful in his defense.

Defense lawyers argue that adequate disclosure by the state of materials that are essential for preparation for trial undermines him. In this case, prosecutors are trying to engage the defendant in a ‘trial by ambush.’ The fervent motion by the defense counsels: “The State’s approach in handling what it deems as favorable evidence is grossly prejudicial and per se prohibited by the courts.

” Baldwin has had to spend a significant amount of time and money only to uncover a long list of undisclosed discoveries that continue to surface from the shadows, not to mention the time spent reviewing over 150,000 pages of documents and hours of audio and video files Also, the defense council in the case expressed their concern with the manner in which the prosecution dealt with evidence, especially the one that revealed that there were times that live bullets were used on the set of the movie.

The prosecution has not been forth coming with details of the same.
