JUSSIE SMOLLETT: Chicago Sues for $130k

Written by on April 12, 2019

The city of Chicago followed through on its threat to sue Jussie Smollett.

The Empire actor failed to write a $130,000 check to the city. Two dozen detectives clocked nearly 2,000 overtime hours investigating Smollett’s claims. So late Thursday night, the city filed a lawsuit in Circuit Court to force Jussie Smollett to pay.

A grand jury indicted Jussie Smollett for a false police report. Prosecutors determined he faked a hate crime. Eventually, to the shock of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, those 16 charges were dropped. (Chicago Tribune)
