The man suing Alec Baldwin for alleged assault wants a full list of people who previously accused the actor of battery, along with private messages relating to his sit-down with Ellen DeGeneres.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the man suing Baldwin is pleading with the judge to move his case forward.
Earlier this year, Wojciech Cieszkowski sued Baldwin accusing him of assault, battery and slander. He accused the actor of punching him in the face over a parking spot.
Cieszkowski also took issue with Baldwin appearing on “The Ellen Show” following the incident. He claimed Cieszkowski “was going to run my wife over with his car when he was stealing my parking spot.” He sued seeking unspecified damages.
Baldwin has denied the allegations of assault. He has stated, “Cieszkowski is trying to turn a minor altercation over a parking spot into a multi-million-dollar lottery ticket.”
In newly filed documents, Cieszkowski says he fired off a list of discovery demands in the case. He demanded Baldwin turn over certain documents, evidence, communications in his possession. He says Baldwin has refused to turn over a single document.
Cieszkowski requested Baldwin turn over documents relating to his criminal case , all social media posts he made about the incident “including unpublished drafts of such postings”, all communications between his lawyers and the Manhattan DA, all witnesses, list of people he spoke to in the 48 hours following the incident and even the names of the publicists he hired.
He also wants to know every lawsuit ever filed against Baldwin. Cieszkowski even requested a list of all people who “have ever alleged in any way, formally or informally, that you physically assaulted, battered, or harassed them or otherwise made unwanted physical contact with them.” The man demanded a list of people whom Baldwin may have entered into settlements with too.
The alleged victim is also asking for all documents “concerning your February 4, 2019 interview on The Ellen Show, including any communications with a booker, producer, or other staff person associated with the show concerning the nature, purpose, or anticipated subject matter of the interview.” He wants the same set of documents relating to a sit-down Baldwin did with Howard Stern in March 2019.
Baldwin has objected to turning over the documents in the case. He argues the discovery is improper due to a stay being in place. He also believes the discovery demands are overbroad and seeking too much from him. A judge has yet to rule.
In November 2018, Baldwin was arrested in New York for allegedly punching Cieszkowski over the parking spot. He was booked for assault and harassment.
He would officially be charged with attempted assault in the 3rd degree, a misdemeanor, and harassment in the 2nd degree, a violation.
According to court records, the complaint made by the alleged victim stated, “I observed the defendant push me and then strike me across the left side of my face with his closed right hand, resulting in pain to my face.”
Records also show that Baldwin initially exclaimed to cops about the alleged victim, “He’s an asshole. He stole my spot,” and then admitted, “I did push him.”
Baldwin later pled guilty to a second-degree violation of harassment and the of attempted assault and harassment charges were dropped. He avoided jail time and was sentenced to anger management classes and hit with a small fine.
