PBS NewsHour reports:
A federal judge in Wisconsin on Wednesday ruled that a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the father of a man shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest in 2020 can proceed against Rittenhouse, police officers and others.
The father of Anthony Huber, one of two men shot and killed by Rittenhouse, filed the lawsuit in 2021, accusing officers of allowing for a dangerous situation that violated his son’s constitutional rights and resulted in his death.
Anthony Huber’s father, John Huber, also alleged that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shootings, conspired with law enforcement to cause harm to protestors.
Read the full article. According to Huber’s lawyers, Rittenhouse has evaded service of the suit by refusing to provide a home address.
Rittenhouse had argued that the case against him should be dismissed because he wasn’t properly served with the lawsuit. The judge dismissed that, saying that Rittenhouse “is almost certainly evading service.” https://t.co/wWzPEGThzw
