Disappointment has been expressed over a recent federal judge’s ruling from Wisconsin that allows a wrongful death lawsuit against Kyle Rittenhouse to move forward. The case was brought by Anthony Huber’s father, John Huber, who was shot and killed by Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a riot in 2020.

Huber claims that law enforcement allowed a dangerous situation that violated his son’s constitutional rights and ultimately resulted in his death, despite the fact that Rittenhouse was cleared of all criminal charges in the murder trial of Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum a year and a half ago.

In the riots following the police shooting of a 29-year-old Black man, Jacob Blake, the defense team for Rittenhouse claimed during the trial that the then-17-year-old was acting in self-defense when he shot Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, as well as deceased Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26.

Rittenhouse was ultimately acquitted by the jury on five counts, including two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, and one count each of first-degree reckless homicide and two additional counts related to his weapon that had been previously dismissed by Judge Bruce Schroeder.

Rittenhouse tweeted in response: “We still have a long fight ahead of us this ruling was disappointing but expected. I respect the judges decision,” as Huber’s civil rights lawsuit against him and other defendants including law enforcement, was allowed to proceed by U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman despite Rittenhouse’s acquittal.

A more thorough examination of the legal system is required in cases like these, where choices must be supported by facts and evidence and where the law, not politics, determines the outcome. Now that it seems hard to ignore the way the justice system has been so heavily politicized in this case, aside from that it’s a case with a number of complexities.
