Judge Rules Wrongful Death Lawsuit against Kyle Rittenhouse by Father of Anthony Huber Can Proceed

John Huber is the father of Anthony Huber, one of Kyle Rittenhouse’s armed attackers who was killed during the violent Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2020.

Huber was part of the violent mob that attacked then-17-year-old Rittenhouse, forcing the teen to exercise his rights to defend himself.

Rittenhouse, who was armed, managed to defend himself from the attackers by shooting three of them, two fatally.

Huber was one of the men that Rittenhouse was forced to kill.

Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder by a jury of his peers, with the court ruling that he had acted in self-defense.

However, John Huber has sued Rittenhouse, police officers, and others for wrongful death.

Yesterday a federal judge in Wisconsin allowed the lawsuit to proceed.

The lawsuit accuses officers of allowing a dangerous situation to develop that violated his son’s constitutional rights and ended in his death.

John Huber also alleged that Rittenhouse conspired with law enforcement to cause harm to protestors.

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

The judge said Anthony Huber’s death “could plausibly be regarded as having been proximately caused by the actions of the governmental defendants.”

Rittenhouse said: “We still have a long fight ahead of us this ruling was disappointing but expected.

“I respect the judge’s decision but hope that as this lawsuit against me continues that truth will be brought to light.

“I am hopeful and thankful for all of your continuous support as I face this.”

Rittenhouse’s attorney Shane Martin said this is just procedural and expects to win in the end.

He said:

“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 and were undertaken in self-defense.”

Anand Swaminathan, one of the attorneys for John Huber, said:

“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.”
