“One of the men Kyle Rittenhouse shot during the 2020 riots has sued the teenager, arguing that the shooting caused emotional distress and humiliation.
Rittenhouse shot Gaige Grosskreutz and two others in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during riots that took place after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in 2021.
Grosskreutz was the only one who survived.
“But he must live with the physical and emotional wounds inflicted by Defendant Rittenhouse,” the new suit reads.
The suit also names the City of Kenosha, Kenosha County, and several law enforcement officials.
It alleges that the defendants conspired to deprive Grosskreutz of his constitutional rights and to obstruct justice, as well as inflict retaliation against Grosskreutz for participating in protests.”
“In media interviews after the testimony, Grosskreutz tried to walk back that acknowledgment.
“I do believe that in that photo, given the right narrative, one could suggest that yes, I was pointing my weapon at the defendant. But when you play it as a movie or look at different stills, my arm was being vaporized as I was allegedly pointing my weapon at the defendant,” he told ABC. “It’s completely inconsistent with the physiology of my wound that he would have shot me while my weapon was pointed at his head.”
Second Call Defense, from trigger through trial, and comprehensive civil defense protection.
Civil Lawsuit Defense Protection
You are protected by funds to defend against civil lawsuits!
Many gun owners think that criminal charges are the biggest risk they face in using self defense. And yes, this is a major risk. However if you abide by legal standards for self defense, competent and immediate representation like we provide can generally prevent serious legal peril.
What is always an unknown is whether someone will file a civil suit to punish you financially. The standard of “proof” is low in a civil action and it’s common for wives, children, or other family members to play on the emotions of a jury, even if you have not been charged criminally.
A civil suit has only one purpose: to destroy you financially. You can lose your savings, your home, and your personal property. Your future wages can even be garnished for the rest of your life. Large settlements can haunt you and your family forever.
That’s why your membership includes protection for legal defense against civil suits. This helps you avoid pressure to settle and lets your attorney put up a strong defense without concerns over whether you can pay the legal bills later.
Up to $300,000 Accidental Shooting Protection
An accidental discharge can also trigger a financially devastating civil lawsuit. Depending on your membership level, you get protection against civil liability suits up to $300,000 for bodily injury or property damage you unintentionally cause with a firearm when you become legally obligated for such damages.
Up to Unlimited Civil Suit Defense Protection
After you successfully defend yourself against criminal charges, you can still be sued in civil court. Because the burden of proof in a civil case is much lower than the burden of proof in a criminal case, you could still be found liable for thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. This is the most serious financial threat you face, which is why at every membership level above “Basic,” Second Call Defense will provide for legal defense costs in a civil matter. This helps you protect yourself from a predatory civil case that seeks to destroy you financially, And it helps you standup to an aggressive plaintiff’s attorney who wants to pressure you to settle.
Up to 300,000 Civil Suit Damages Protection
While we provide you with civil suit defense protection, there’s always the chance that you could be found liable by a jury sympathetic to your assailant or the assailant’s family. Depending on your membership level, you’ll have access to as much as $300,000 for damages to help you avoid the devastating consequences.
