Sandmann lawyer joins Rittenhouse team, says Zuckerberg a 'top' target of numerous 'solid' lawsuits

I’ve been hired to head the effort to determine whom to sue, when to sue, where to sue,” 托德·麦克默特里, who now represents Rittenhouse, told Fox News Digital in a phone interview Thursday morning. “We’re going to look at everything that’s been said, determine which of those comments are legally actionable and proceed from there.

McMurtry said it’s​​pretty much assured that there’s probably 10 至 15 坚硬的” cases againstlarge defendants.

Rittenhouse was charged with two counts of homicide, one count of attempted homicide, and other charges after fatally shooting two men and injuring another during the Kenosha riots of 2020. He was ultimately acquitted of all charges in November of last year after testifying he acted in self-defense.

Though the legal process for potential defamation cases is just beginning, McMurtry singled out Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook for afactually falsedesignation on the platform that listed the Kenosha shootings as a “大屠杀” 事件. The designation resulted in Rittenhouse’s social media accounts being pulled down and restricting positive comments about the teenager.

Let’s just use for an example what Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg said about [里顿豪斯]. They said that he was involved in a mass murder incident,” McMurtry explained. “This was not a mass murder incident. It was clearly factually false.

To call somebody a mass murderer is seriously defamatory. And then to use the power of social media to basically … censor any views that would take opposition to that mass murderer statement is a serious effort to destroy his character. And it was seriously mistaken and seriously defamatory.
