Rittenhouse Attacker Launches Lawsuit — Gives Ludicrous Reasoning For Damages

The man who chased down then 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse and pointed a gun at him, only to be shot by him in turn during the 2020 Kenosha Riots is now suing the exonerated young man. Gaige Grosskreutz filed a lawsuit on Febuary 14th against Rittenhouse, according to a recent report from Fox News. But not only is Grosskreutz suing Rittenhouse but he’s also suing the city, county, and several law enforcement officials.

In the lawsuit, according to Fox, Grosskreutz is seeking $10 million in, “damages for emotional distress, humiliation, loss of enjoyment of life, and other pain and suffering on all claims.” Of course he’s also seeking punitive damages.

Although Rittenhouse was found not guilty in the shooting of Grosskreutz, and the deaths of Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum, a civil lawsuit has a far lower burden of proof.

In the text of the lawsuit, Grosskreutz’s legal representatives, Ascend Counsel attorneys Kimberley Motley of Motley Legal Services and E. Milo Schwab, claimed,

“Astonishingly, the Kenosha Police Department, Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, their supervising officials and police officers, and law enforcement officers from surrounding communities did not treat Defendant Rittenhouse or any of the other armed individuals patrolling the streets as a threat to the safety of themselves or the citizens they were sworn to protect.”

The lawsuit further presses the claim, “Instead, the law enforcement Defendants deputized these armed individuals, conspired with them, and ratified their actions by letting them patrol the streets, armed with deadly weapons, to mete out justice as they saw fit,'” according to The Post Millennial.

The lawsuit lists “the city of Kenosha, Kenosha County, five other neighboring counties, police officers, former Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth and former Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis” as co-defendants, according to the outlet.

Rittenhouse, whose legal struggle through 2021 has become a landmark for the Second Amendment right to self-defense, told Fox News that he is ready to “prove my innocence again,” even though another extended legal battle may cost him severely. He added that the lawsuit came as “a little bit of a shock.”


“I guess it came as a shock to why he’s filing a lawsuit because he admitted that he pointed a gun in my face and that he chased me down,” Rittenhouse said in an appearance on Fox News.

Rittenhouse has opened a GiveSendGo to fund his legal defense. He tweeted, “Thank you everyone who continues to donate and help me fight this civil lawsuit.
