Kyle Rittenhouse Judge MSNBC Jury Ban

Rittenhouse judge bans MSNBC from courthouse over photographing jury allegations

The judge presiding over the Kyle Rittenhouse trial banned MSNBC from the courthouse in Kenosha on Thursday after a person claiming to work for the network was accused of following the jury and attempting to photograph them.

“I have instructed that no one from MSNBC news will be permitted in this building for the duration of this trial. This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is but ultimately, it will go without much thinking that someone who is following the jury bus—that’s an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities,” Kenosha County Judge Bruce Schroeder told the court on Thursday.

Schroeder said police reported that a person, who claimed to work for MSNBC, followed the jury bus on Wednesday evening under the instruction of a supervisor.

The matter is under further investigation at this time, according to the judge.

MSNBC has denied any knowledge of this individual.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
