Civil rights lawsuit against Kyle Rittenhouse can proceed, judge rules

A civil rights lawsuit against Kyle Rittenhouse and the Wisconsin city and county of Kenosha will be allowed to move forward, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

Anthony Huber was one of three men shot by Rittenhouse during the August 2020 protests that followed the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by a white Kenosha police officer two days earlier.

In November 2021, Rittenhouse was acquitted in a homicide trial in the deaths of Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36. He also was found not guilty of injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, 26.

The lawsuit, filed in August 2021 in federal court by the Huber family, seeks “to hold the municipalities and law enforcement officers involved in the police response to the protests liable for (Huber’s) death,” according to the ruling.
