Kyle Rittenhouse, Facebook and militia groups to face lawsuit over fatal shootings at Jacob Blake pr

By Stephanie Gallman, CNN 3 hrs ago

A civil rights lawsuit was filed this week against suspected shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, Facebook and self-styled militia groups the "Kenosha Guard" and "Boogaloo Bois," after two people were killed and a third was seriously wounded during an August protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

The plaintiffs are four Black Lives Matter demonstrators, including the longtime girlfriend of slain protester Anthony Huber. Also killed that night was Joseph Rosenbaum.

The plaintiffs allege militia groups "collaborated, planned, orchestrated" an assault on protesters August 25. The defendants made it hard to "differentiate between the militias and police, who appeared to be working in coordination, the suit said.

Rittenhouse, 17, has been charged with intentionally killing Huber and Rosenbaum and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz. In a statement to NBC News, Rittenhouse's criminal attorney, John Pierce, said his client's actions were "classic self-defense." Rittenhouse has not yet entered a plea.

1. A delicious tidbit later in the article:

"Attorney Lin Wood told CNN he represents Rittenhouse in his civil suits."
I couldn't have wished for a more fitting lawyer for Rittenhouse!
