The Fedril gobmint needs to press charges, Smollett needs to go to jail for pulling that shit.

If the whitefaced attack was caught on camera, like he intended, (but was too stupid to get it right..) ppl would have been killed in the riots.

He's too much of a dumbass to actually get anyone killed. He tried though didn't he? A good effort..

I can't believe this MFer is in Hawaii laughing it up. Oh, he's owed a vacation alright. Not in Hawaii

The Nigerian brothers are now sueing Smollett's lawyers...
Two brothers who say they helped Jussie Smollett stage a racist and homophobic attack against himself filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the Empire actor’s attorneys, alleging that they repeatedly asserted publicly that the brothers carried out a real, bigoted attack on Smollett despite knowing that was not true.

A lawyer for Olabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo filed the federal lawsuit on behalf of the brothers. It names the well-known defense attorney Mark Geragos and his law firm as defendants.

The suit contends that even after police and prosecutors alleged that the 29 January attack in Chicago was staged and after all charges were dropped, controversially, against Smollett, Geragos and his firm continued to say publicly in widely reported statements that the brothers “led a criminally homophobic, racist and violent attack against Mr Smollett”, even though they knew that was not the case.

The lawsuit says that the lawyers’ repeated statements that Smollett told the truth all along and that the brothers were lying caused them “significant emotional distress”, made them feel unsafe and alienated them from the local community.

The brothers did not appear at a news conference their attorneys held on Tuesday, but they issued a statement, saying: “We have sat back and watched lie after lie being fabricated about us in the media, only so one big lie can continue to have life. These lies are destroying our character and reputation in our personal and professional lives.”

The lawsuit does not specify an exact amount of money the brothers are seeking, only that would it be more than $75,000 for “appropriate compensatory damages, punitive damages and costs” stemming from the alleged defamation.

Geragos did not immediately reply to messages seeking comment about the lawsuit.

It also accuses Smollett of taking advantage of the brothers’ own aspirations to establish TV and movie careers by manipulating them into taking part in the alleged hoax.

“In short, Mr Smollett used his clout as a wealthy actor to influence Plaintiffs, who were in a subordinate relationship to him and were aspiring to ‘make it’ in Hollywood,” the lawsuit contends.

Police allege that Smollett paid the brothers to help him stage an attack in which he said two masked men beat him, hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, doused him with a chemical substance and looped a rope around his neck.

Smollett, who is black and gay, maintains that the attack was not staged. In the weeks after the alleged attack police arrested the Osundairo brothers on suspicion of assaulting Smollett but released them without charge. A police spokesman said the two were no longer considered suspects.

About a week after police questioned the brothers, Smollett was charged with felony disorderly conduct and accused of making a false police report about the attack. The Cook county state’s attorney’s office abruptly dropped charges against Smollett in March. The city of Chicago has since sued Smollett seeking repayment for costs of investigating his case.

Judge: Smollett’s PR Antics Justify Unsealing Case File

ED MORRISSEY
Posted at 2:41 pm on May 23, 2019

Everyone will soon be able to see the evidence police put together in accusing Jussie Smollett of a hate-crime hoax — and he only has himself and his legal team to blame. Ruling that the Empire actor actively promoted his arrest and quasi-dismissal, a judge in Chicago ruled in favor of media outlets and ordered the case records unsealed. The city’s state attorney Kim Foxx got them sealed after her highly questionable “alternative prosecution” deal let Smollett entirely off the hook and loudly proclaiming his exoneration.

That’s the problem, Judge Steve Watkins concluded:

Judge Stephen Watkins, who presided over a March hearing where prosecutors abruptly dropped their case against Smollett for allegedly faking a hate crime attack near his Streeterville home, ruled in favor of a request from media groups, including the Chicago Sun-Times, to make public all records in Smollett’s case. …

Watkins said that Smollett’s demand for privacy was contradicted by his media appearances before he was charged and after the case was dropped.

“Smollett voluntarily appeared on national television speaking about the incident in detail,” Watkins said, reading from a written court order. “After the March dismissal, he stood in front of numerous cameras… in the courthouse lobby speaking about the case.”

“These are not the actions of a person seeking simply to maintain his privacy or simply to be let alone.”


Smollett’s attorney had argued that the public didn’t need to see the evidence in order to be kept informed about the “process” of the case. That argument didn’t fly with Watkins:

Smollett’s attorney Brian Watson contended that the “Empire” actor has a right to privacy under various statutes that are afforded to thousands of other people every year, and that the media was allowed to cover the process of the case itself, so the public was not barred from learning any new developments.


The “process” of the case isn’t over yet, NBC’s Chicago affiliate notes. A hearing is scheduled for May 31st to determine whether a special prosecutor is needed to investigate Foxx and her office in their decision to essentially dismiss charges against Smollett.

The state’s attorney office promised to comply with the order promptly:

[video at above linked article]

As well they might, although Smollett’s attorneys could still appeal. It will be an uphill battle, though, as the original decision to seal the case was almost as strange as the decision to let Smollett off the hook. As Watkins points out, records get sealed for acquittals and dismissals with prejudice, not usually for other outcomes. It’s always to serve a privacy interest, however, and it’s clear that Smollett and his legal team had no such interest:

Indeed, Smollett’s clear intent since first filing the police report was to publicize it as much as possible. That’s been true regardless of whether the report was true or a hoax. And with this ruling, assuming a higher court doesn’t overturn it, we’ll all be able to see the entire case that the city of Chicago had for its prosecution of Smollett.

That won’t matter much for Smollett’s legal status, at least in a criminal sense. Jeopardy has attached to the Foxx office’s resolution, so unless Smollett undertook some corrupt act to get to that conclusion, he can’t be prosecuted for the hoax. The city can use the unsealed file for its lawsuit against Smollett, though, and perhaps the producers and cast of Empire might have cause to rethink any plans for bringing Smollett’s character back in the last season of the show.
