A lawyer for Jussie Smollett on Wednesday left open the possibility that the “Empire” star — who Chicago prosecutors acknowledged had lied about being a hate crime victim — may now sue over the alleged attack.
Tina Glandian appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to address prosecutors’ stunning decision the day before to drop all 16 felony counts against the actor.
“We’re weighing our options now,” Glandian said in response to co-host George Stephanopoulos’ question, “Are you going to sue?”
“For Jussie, what’s really important is he really just wants his career and his life back,” the lawyer continued. “Again, he did not ask for any of this, he was a victim of a crime.”

No he's not, the facts would destroy him. It's a PR stunt, try to sway public opinion with stupid stunts.
False, as soon as he did he would open the door to the CPD getting an order to unseal the documents to be used in their legal defense. I am very confident that is what would happen.
They are sealed because their is no more litigation surrounding them. I would imagine the CPD could also sue him and introduce the evidence again.
