Greetings ATS readers, writers, lurkers, shills, bots, trolls, and sundry! It seems we may have a new development in the Jussie Smollett circus.

Quick rundown for those of you who may not be familiar with this situation.

Jan 29 - Jussie Smollett claims he was attacked and called racial and homophobic names by unidentified persons who also called at him, "This is MAGA country." Many question certain aspects of the story from the beginning.

By about the 15th-17th of February, the investigation shifts over to Smollett being considered as the possible architect of the event.

March 8 Smollett is indicted on 16 felony counts for filing false police reports.

March 26 all charges are dropped in an emergency unscheduled court appearance, the charges are also expunged, the case sealed, and the case files have been deleted from the Cook County database.

Today, this report was filed:


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.”


Page Six

So, now we have a spokesperson for Jussie Smollett indicating that Smollett might sue the CPD for defamation and claming that Smollett, "was a victim of a crime."

Does Jussie Smollett deserve any remuneration for the negative publicity he received as a result of the event that took place at the end of January 2019?

No he's not, the facts would destroy him. It's a PR stunt, try to sway public opinion with stupid stunts.

He got his cake and wants to eat it too.

I hope he does try to sue Chicago, wouldn't that be interesting?
But instead of rewarding him, the jury decides he owes the city. That would be awesome. Is that even possible?

Oh well.

If he had any sense, he would quit while he's ahead.

I don't know if he's really ahead though, as I don't think the FBI is done with him yet.

I also think the CPD has grounds for a civil case to recoup the $ they spent, investigating a false police report.

This ain't over, IMO.

If he sued it would be unsealed I think. He never will.

I feel like I just woke up in the middle of a Twilight Zone episode.

The blatant, unbridled corruption in this country is surreal.

Our society has a terminal illness.

ETA: Have you seen jussies lawyer? I need a shower after watching that liar.

Any truth to that? It would render my suspicion null indeed.

He can't claim there is no evidence unless the evidence is unsealed I believe.

Any circuit court judge can unseal them with a signature, if there is any future litigation.

This guy is a liar and is now trying to save face and his career. He still claims he's the "victim" and his lawyer is now blaming the Nigerian brothers. How can he sue when the prosecutors said they still believe Smollett concocted the assault? First Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Magats told reporters that he believed Smollett filed a false police report. He was "exonerated" because of outside influence, as well as him forfeiting the $10,000 bond payment and doing community service. A small slap on the wrist, that should outrage any person serving time in Chicago, for having committed lesser crimes. Then, if this wasn't bad enough, his case is suspiciously "sealed." This case will now be the best example of someone using fake oppression to attain publicity in order to further their career. Instead of suing the CPD for defamation, he should disappear for several months....but his HUGE ego won't allow that.

If the records of any evidence is sealed by a judge, then that is all the evidence available. IE none.

So without evidence to the contrary, Smallett could sue for wrongdoing and as the quote states, being a 'victim.'

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.

On the brightside....

We'll wage meme warfare on this asshat.

Just think. If he would just say “I’m sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m getting help for my poor decision making.” Or something similar...it would all go away. Or it would have before he forced people to dig up the corruption going on...

I'm not necessarily disagreeing, just asking for proof.

The would need to address the court to do that. The same court that sealed it so I would imagine appeals would need to be made.
