Kyle Rittenhouse, who skyrocketed to fame in right-wing circles after shooting and killing two protesters during a social rights march in 2020, is now facing a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the victim's father, according to PBS.
The lawsuit was filed by John Huber, the father of one of the two victims, and also includes city officials and police officers. U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman dismissed motions from the city officials, police officers and Rittenhouse to dismiss the civil rights case in its entirety.
Huber's lawsuit states that Rittenhouse conspired with police officers to intentionally cause harm to the protesters who were marching in reaction to the shooting of Jacob Blake, who was injured by a Wisconsin police officer.
Rittenhouse was a minor at age 17 at the time.
In the ruling Adelman said Huber's death "could plausibly be regarded as having been proximately caused by the actions of the government defendants. Huber was killed after Rittenhouse was running after he shot and killed his first victim in the parking lot of a car dealership and Huber hit Rittenhouse with a skateboard to disarm him. After falling to the ground Rittenhouse fatally shot Huber and wounded another protester Gaige Grosskreutz, who also has filed a civil lawsuit against Rittenhouse.
Huber's lawyers and private investigators needed over 100 hours to locate Rittenhouse to serve him with the civil lawsuit paperwork, eventually serving him at his sister's house. Rittenhouse's lawyers tried to argue the case should be dismissed because he was not properly served. The judge dismissed that claim.
Rittenhouse has become a popular Republican right-wing speaker at public events and has nearly 1 million followers on Twitter.
Correction: This story has been updated to reflect that Jacob Blake was shot and injured, but not killed, as originally reported.

Lawfare at its finest
The process is the punishment. So now Kyle will have to spend $100,000 (minimum) on lawyers and live with anxiety for months.
And which bored Democrat fat cats have funded this lawsuit?
Innocent mistake, I'm sure.
“Rittenhouse was running after he shot and killed his first victim”
Victim? The guy was attacking him.
Talk about yellow journalism!
Evidence of actual conspiracy? I don't think so.
Makes it sound like he was evading a manhunt.
No bias there!
Absolutely no bias in this article.
“An Illinois resident, drove to Wisconsin”
Do they not understand it was only a few miles and not hundreds of miles for him to get there. As I recall, his job was in Kenosha.
No, let’s make it seem it was an all day trip to go murder a few people.
I hate the freakin media..
This Huber is the one who chased and then whacked Kyle with a skateboard.
Rittenhouse should countersue the dead punk’s Pop.
The corrupt leftist activist media. The GOP really needs a full time "group" to point out the daily/multiple bad biased activist media reports. Put it up on a youtube channel or something. Ronna McDaniel should finance it instead of doing nothing.
Huber got shot because he was a pedophile thug chasing a kid trying to kill him.
The kid did something the other kids Huber screwed with didnt: he hit back.
The federal “judge” is a moron to let this case proceed.
Judicial Council Rightly Rebukes Judge Lynn Adelman for Law Review DiatribeJul 17, 2020
Federal district court Judge Lynn Adelman had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day late last month when the Judicial Council of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to publicly admonish him for his intemperate 35-page article, “The Roberts Court’s Assault on Democracy,” which personally attacked Chief Justice John Roberts, President Donald Trump, and the Republican Party.
Kudos to the council.
We had previously called for “the 7th Circuit [to] publicly censure Adelman for apparently violating the Code of Conduct [for United States Judges]” and are glad that the court took that appropriate course of action in his case.
Adelman wrote a March law review article for the Harvard Law & Policy Review, the official journal of the left-leaning American Constitution Society, in which he called Roberts’ promise to call “balls and strikes” a “masterpiece of disingenuousness.”
He accused Trump of failing “to enact policies beneficial to the general public,” of behaving like an “autocrat,” and of failing “to buck the wealthy individuals and corporations who control his party.”
If all of that weren’t enough, Adelman, a judge for the Eastern District of Wisconsin since 1997, targeted Republicans for special criticism and went so far as to liken them to pro-slavery “fire-eaters” of the pre-Civil War South.
Given all of that, on March 13, we discussed the arrogance and asininity of Adelman’s article and noted that he had likely violated the Code of Conduct for United States Judges. We made clear that Adelman had “left him[self] vulnerable to well-founded complaints.”
Shortly thereafter, on March 16, March 23, and March 24, four individuals filed those well-founded complaints against Adelman.
As the 10-page opinion of June 22 resolving the complaints says, “The article speaks for itself … .”
The council’s opinion says, “Judges criticize one another’s reasoning, sometimes harshly. … Nothing said in this decision on the complaints should be interpreted as suggesting that judges should be silenced from criticizing court decisions.”
We agree, but Adelman, 80, crossed the line.
Hopefully, Kyle's lawyer will demand and get a change of venue, and a conservative jury will preside over the wrongful, wrongful death suit.
The creepy old Commie stooge is just another attacker who is after Kyle Rittenhouse, and is probably sad that he was too old to riot in the streets of Kenosha during The Commie Days of Rage back then.
Probably a closet pedo.
U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman
a LIBERAL EXTREME PROGRESSIVE EVIL DEMOCRAT
A ludicrous rehash of every smear made against Kyle Rittenhouse, with added dreck about “right wing hero.”
