According to the suit obtained by TMZ, the pregnant actress — who is expecting her first child with boyfriend John Mulaney — and her mother Kim Schmid have had a lawsuit filed against them by the family of Celso Merida.

The suit claims that in May, Merida was replacing the roof during his fourth day of working at the home when he fell and suffered blunt force traumatic injuries that caused his death weeks later.

According to legal documents, the family claimed that the The Predator star and her mother hired an unlicensed contractor named Fernando who brought Merida in to work on the residence.

The family claimed that hiring an unlicensed contractor was "negligent" on Munn and Schmid's part. They also alleged that the women instructed Merida to complete work on the roof, even though the required safety guards and fall protection were not in place, in turn creating an "unreasonable risk of injury."

According to the outlet, in order to speed up the process, Mualney has switched attorneys and is now being represented by John Teitler with the New York City law firm Teitler & Teitler.
