Texas Legal Foundation to Defend Kyle Rittenhouse After GoFundMe Ban

(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) A legal team says it will defend Kyle Rittenhouse, charged in the fatal shooting during protests in Kenosha this week, and has set up a fund for the 17-year-old’s legal fees. 

Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois, has been charged with multiple counts, including first-degree intentional homicide, in the shooting that killed two people and injured a third. 

Videos from protests in Kenosha Tuesday night show Rittenhouse armed with an AR-15 and describing himself as part of a militia protecting businesses. 

A legal team from the #FightBack Foundation said it will be part of Rittenhouse’s defense team. #FightBack Foundation Inc. was incorporated in Texas effective Aug. 12, according to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. 

Lawyer L. Lin Wood said he helped form the foundation with “a mission to protect and defend our Constitution on many fronts.” 

“Kyle’s defense is one of those fronts,” Wood said in an email.

Wood is a nationally prominent defamation lawyer who helped a Covington Catholic High School student sue CNN, The Washington Post and other media companies in 2019 over alleged “vicious” and “direct attacks.”

The #FightBack Foundation will take donations for Rittenhouse’s legal defense.
