Years before Huber’s father filed a lawsuit, Gaige Grosskreutz, the man who survived Rittenhouse’s shootings, filed a lawsuit in October 2021, accusing Rittenhouse and other law enforcement officials of causing his injuries.

To no surprise, Rittenhouse isn’t too happy about the lawsuits, telling the Texas Scorecard, “These lawsuits are making it harder and harder for me to move on with my life.

No one should have to continue to defend the fact that they acted in self-defense.”

Good luck selling that to the folks who lost their loved ones at his hands.
