According to a decision made on Wednesday via a federal judge in Wisconsin, a tragic death lawsuit brought by the dad of a person who was murdered by Kyle Rittenhouse throughout a protest in 2020 can go forward against Rittenhouse, policemen, and other parties.
In 2021, the father of Anthony Huber, 1 of the 2 individuals Rittenhouse murdered and killed, filed a lawsuit against the police, charging them with enabling a dangerous situation to build that broke his son’s fundamental rights and caused his death. John Huber, the father of Anthony Huber, claimed that Rittenhouse, which was 17 at the time of the shootings, planned to attack protesters with the help of the police. John Huber is suing the city, the police, and Rittenhouse for an undefined amount of damages.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman denied motions Rittenhouse and the government defendants made in an attempt to have the civil rights complaint dismissed.
The judge stated that Anthony Huber’s death “may reasonably be viewed as having been roughly caused by the actions of the governmental defendants” in enabling the case against Rittenhouse and the rest to move forward.
It’s essential to demonstrate that the decision simply enables the case to move on to the following stage: it does not consider the case’s merits, according to Shane Martin, a lawyer for Rittenhouse.
