Federal Judge Allows Lawsuit Against Kyle Rittenhouse To Proceed

On Wednesday, a federal judge in Wisconsin decided that the father of a man who was shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse at a protest in 2020 could pursue his wrongful death claim against Rittenhouse, police, and other parties.

Anthony Huber’s father filed the complaint in 2021, alleging the officers of permitting a dangerous scenario that violated his son’s fundamental rights and ultimately led to his murder. Anthony Huber was one of two men Rittenhouse shot and killed.

John Huber, the father of Anthony Huber, claimed that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shootings, had teamed up with the police to injure protesters. John Huber is suing Rittenhouse, the police, and the city for undisclosed damages.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman dismissed motions filed by Rittenhouse and the government defendants seeking to dismiss the civil rights lawsuit.

The judge stated that Anthony Huber’s death “may conceivably be viewed as having been proximately caused by the actions of the governmental defendants” in permitting the case against Rittenhouse and the others to move forward.

Due to improper service of the complaint, Rittenhouse claimed that the case against him should be dismissed. Rittenhouse “is almost probably dodging service,” according to Adelman, who disputed that.

Before finding Rittenhouse’s mother and sister’s home in Florida, John Huber’s lawyers and private investigators spent over 100 hours looking for Rittenhouse and tracing down addresses in seven states. Rittenhouse’s sister, who claimed he wasn’t at home, received notice of the case. That, according to Adelman, is sufficient to qualify as service.

“Rittenhouse has been deliberately cagey about his whereabouts,” Adelman wrote. “Although he denies living in Florida, he does not identify the place that he deems to be his residence.”

Rittenhouse’s lawyers did not immediately answer requests for comment sent through email. Law enforcement and Kenosha officials’ lawyers also failed to respond to emails sent to them right away.

The decision brings John Huber and Karen Bloom, the parents of Anthony Huber, “one step closer to justice for their son’s terrible death,” according to Anand Swaminathan, one of the attorneys on their behalf.

“The Kenosha officials that created a powder keg situation by their actions tried to claim that they cannot be held accountable for their unconstitutional conduct; that argument was soundly rejected today,” Swaminathan said in a statement.

In the summer of 2020, during a stormy night of protests over the shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake, by a white Kenosha police officer, Rittenhouse used an AR-style semi-automatic rifle to kill Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and injure a third person while also being charged with homicide, attempted homicide, and reckless endangerment.

Rittenhouse said he acted in self-defense and was cleared of all charges in November 2021. Rittenhouse’s acts became a hot topic in the American conversation about firearms, vigilantism, and racial injustice.

After businesses were looted and set on fire in the nights following Blake’s shooting, Rittenhouse traveled to Kenosha from his home in Antioch, Illinois. He joined other armed individuals on the streets while toting a firearm that, according to the authorities, was unlawfully bought for him because he was a minor.

In the parking lot of an auto dealership, Rittenhouse first murdered Rosenbaum, 36; as he fled the scene, Rittenhouse stumbled and fell. 26-year-old Anthony Huber attempted to disarm Rittenhouse by striking him with his skateboard. Rittenhouse shot Gaige Grosskreutz, a 27-year-old protester, and killed Anthony Huber before falling to the ground.

One of several continuing civil cases brought after the shootings is this one. A similar complaint against Rittenhouse was brought by Grosskreutz last year.

Rittenhouse has had a prominent online presence, especially on social media, where he is a vocal supporter of gun rights. He has spoken at conservative events and has around a million Twitter followers.
