Blake Drops Civil Right Lawsuit

Perhaps they realized how ridiculous it is? Nah… can’t be that.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Jacob Blake has dropped his federal civil rights lawsuit against the Wisconsin police officer who shot him during a domestic disturbance and left him paralyzed from the waist down.


Neither attorneys for Blake, whose August 2020 shooting sparked the protests in which Kyle Rittenhouse fatally shot two men and wounded a third, nor Kenosha Officer Rusten Sheskey indicated in their court filings why the lawsuit was being dropped, including whether a settlement had been reached.


A man who answered the phone at the office of Blake’s attorney, Patrick Salvi II, hung up when asked about the decision to drop the lawsuit, and Sheskey’s attorney, Kenneth Battle, had no immediate comment.

    My guess: someone reminded the “lawyer” here that frivolous lawsuits will get a lawyer fined and/or suspended from practice.

    If a liberal attorney General and DA can’t get an indictment, there was no way he should have gotten.
    They were hoping for a settlement.
    Apparently, Kenosha has grown a backbone, something that Blake really can’t really say.
