Though Kyle Rittenhouse was found innocent by a jury of his peers last fall, his travails haven’t ended. Rather, he’s facing a civil lawsuit backed by a leftist firm that threatens to strip what resources he has stripped from him over his use of force to defend himself in Kenosha during the 2020 riots.
Kyle announced that and called for help in mid-September, saying:
I was found innocent, but the fight hasn’t stopped. I am currently being attacked via a civil lawsuit in Wisconsin. I’d like to thank everyone for the ongoing support. Thank you to my dear friends who set this up for me, we won’t stop fighting!

Predictably, the hate-filled leftists started savagely attacking him in the Twitter replies. One, for example, said: “Civil lawsuit?! Wonderful news. Was hoping for Federal charges, but bankrupting you and your family for the rest of your lives is a good start.”
In any case, patriots have been helping out Kyle by helping pay his legal bills as he fights off the civil suit, with that linked GiveSendGo page showing that the fundraiser has so far garnered $10,244 of a $150,000 goal.
The donation page also explains more about what he’s facing in the civil trial, saying (emphasis ours):
Kyle Rittenhouse was found NOT GUILTY by a jury of his peers. The unanimous verdict did not prevent Kyle from being added as a defendant in an erroneous civil lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of Wisconsin against nine Wisconsin police departments, including ten city and county governments. The Plaintiff, John Huber, is represented by a Chicago-based, incredibly well-capitalized, Democrat Party-aligned law firm specializing in police misconduct and civil rights cases.
This civil action is an attack against Kyle Rittenhouse for being acquitted of all charges arising from his justifiable use of deadly force to defend his own life. Moreover, it’s also intended to degrade further the protections afforded to us under the Second Amendment of The United States Constitution and our God-given Right to Self Defense. Lastly, this lawsuit is a broadside against law enforcement and seeks to diminish the heroic and selfless sense of duty displayed by police across the country and their commitment to the rule of law.
The GiveSendGo page also highlights some statements made by the plaintiff in the lawsuit that Kyle and his team argue are “misrepresent[ations of] fundamental facts,” saying:
Shockingly, partisan lawyers continue to misrepresent fundamental facts and purposefully omit details to harass, demean and politicize an innocent young man. Here are a few examples…
“One of these armed individuals was Defendant Kyle Rittenhouse, who was then 17 years old. He crossed into Wisconsin from Illinois, carrying an assault rifle on the streets of Kenosha, in open violation of the law.”
“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.”
“As a result, Defendant Rittenhouse fired his assault rifle indiscriminately multiple times at citizens on the street.”
“Instead, the Law Enforcement Defendants allowed Defendant Rittenhouse to patrol the streets of downtown Kenosha with his deadly assault rifle, they invited him in, deputized him, conspired with him, and ratified his actions.”
The funds garnered by the GiveSendGo fundraiser will be used to help Kyle pay his legal bills as he faces this renewed courtroom assault.
As a reminder of the good news for Kyle, here’s a news report from when he was acquitted:
