Skip to comments.Jussie Smollett sues city of Chicago for malicious prosecution

says the $10,000 he was mandated to pay after the criminal case against him was closed should prevent the city of Chicago from seeking reimbursement for the police investigation following his claim, back in January 2019, that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack.
Attorneys for the former "Empire" actor filed a response Tuesday to Chicagos lawsuit in federal court. They also filed a counterclaim against the city, saying Smollett was the victim of a malicious prosecution that caused humiliation and extreme distress.

In January, Smollett told police he was attacked by two masked men as he was walking home from a Chicago Subway sandwich shop at approximately 2 a.m. The openly gay actor alleged that the masked men beat him, taunted him with homophobic and racial slurs and yelled, "This is MAGA country."
In February, police determined that Smollett's masked assailants were brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo, who trained Smollett and worked with him on "Empire." Authorities also identified the brothers as those on surveillance video purchasing the rope that was reportedly hung around Jussie's neck during the alleged attack.

After an intense investigation, police determined Smollett staged the entire episode with the help of two brothers, whom he paid to take part in the hoax assault, in an elaborate effort to drum up publicity for his middling career. After prosecutors dropped the case in March, Smollett maintained his innocence but agreed to let authorities keep a $10,000 bail.
He was charged with filing a false police report, but those charges were dropped by Cook County States Attorney Kim Foxx a few weeks later.

I wish this lying faggot would just go away!
He should face federal charges since the city refuses to prosecute. Incitement to race war.
Maybe he should try to raise money by selling freshly re-autographed photos of him with the Obamas.
Juicy and Chitcago Government deserve one another. Juicy lied, Chitcago looked the other way and now he wants to sue them. What a goat cluster.
I predict they’ll quietly settle with Smuttle.
He’s black, “gay” and hates Trump.
And he’ll win too!! Every demonic lying bastard always wins!! We are living in the last days..I’m sure of it!!! Everything good is bad and everything bad is good!! Truth is considered lies and lies are considered truth! Yep, last days! Too many satanic people in control and power in this world! We don’t stand a chance!!
This guy has some brass ones, that’s for sure.
Or they are afraid what they find if they look into it too far (where Harris and Booker involved?)
The little commie fruitcake bastard that cried wolf is really trying to pin his fake assault on Trump and us. May he burn in hell FOREVER.
Chicago has reason to be proud-----it found The Missing Link and made it the State's Attorney.
Damn, she is ugly.
Like a child who murdered his Mother and Father and is now claiming he’s a poor, pitiful orphan.
He is extremely stupid, and his lawyers are sucking him dry of whatever money he has. Discovery will not be kind to Jussie.
Under California (which is all I know) it would have to be shown that the criminal case was started without probable cause, which in the context of this civil action means that the prosecution was started without a good faith belief that smollett had committed a crime. 2. That it was started with malicious intent. 3. That the outcome was favorable to smollett . If Illinois law is anything similar, I see serious problems with him proving all three elements.
This is chutzpah. He’s guilty and wants money for being thought guilty.
The metallic taste must be be awful for his boyfriends.
“After prosecutors dropped the case in March, Smollett maintained his innocence but agreed to let authorities keep a $10,000 bail.”
Correction: $10,000 bribe that got leaked.
Now Lil Jussie needs to be countersued for filing a frivolous lawsuit & abuse of process, in addition to filing a false police report.
...and his lawyers are sucking him dry of whatever money he has.
Somehow I doubt he is the one paying the attorneys?
Brassification may have set in after the paychecks stopped coming in...
A very strong case Mr smollet has there.
