Judge Rules Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Kyle Rittenhouse In The Kenosha Shooting Of Anthony Huber Can Move Forward

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled Wednesday that a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the father of a man shot & killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest in 2020 can proceed against Rittenhouse, police officers & others.

The father of Anthony Huber, 1 of 2 men shot & killed by Rittenhouse, filed the lawsuit in 2021, accusing officers of allowing for a dangerous situation that violated his son’s constitutional rights & resulted in his death. Anthony Huber’s father, John Huber, also alleged that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shootings, conspired with law enforcement to cause harm to protestors. John Huber is seeking unspecified damages from city officials, officers & Rittenhouse.

“While we respect the judge’s decision, we do not believe there is any evidence of a conspiracy and we are confident, just as a Kenosha jury found, Kyle’s actions that evening were not wrongful & were undertaken in self defense,” Rittenhouse attorney Shane Martin said.

Rittenhouse was charged with homicide, attempted homicide & reckless endangering for killing Anthony Huber & Joseph Rosenbaum & wounding a third person with an AR-style semi-automatic rifle in the summer of 2020 during a tumultuous night of protests over the shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake, by a white Kenosha cop.

Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in November 2021 after testifying he acted in self-defense. 

Rittenhouse went to Kenosha from his home in nearby Antioch, Illinois, after businesses were ransacked & burned in the nights that followed Blake’s shooting. He joined other armed civilians on the streets, carrying a weapon authorities said was illegally purchased for him because he was underage.
