Rittenhouse Judge Criticizes Media Coverage of Trial
The judge at Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial said Wednesday that he will “think long and hard” about allowing live-streamed trials in the future and criticized the media for “grossly irresponsible handling” of the trial.
Judge Bruce Schroeder responded to a report published by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that included questions about why he didn’t take action after Rittenhouse’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the trial with prejudice earlier this week.
“I’m somewhat astounded,” Schroeder said. “It’s just a shame irresponsible statements are being made.”
Noting that the motion was filed Tuesday, the judge said he hasn’t “had a chance” to read it.
