CHICAGO — An attorney for Jussie Smollett has written a letter warning that if Chicago follows through on its vow to sue the ‘‘Empire’’ actor for the cost of the investigation into his claim that he was attacked, he’ll demand sworn testimony from Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the police chief and others.
Geragos also said he will demand sworn depositions from the two brothers who told police that Smollett paid them to stage the attack, as well as their attorney and their attorney’s husband. He said he will also demand all the paperwork generated in the investigation.
Advocacy Group A Just Cause Has Appealed to the California Bar Alleging That Attorney Mark Geragos Violated Rules of Professional Conduct
Now Geragos might need a defense attorney himself after being named in a case accusing lawyer Michael Avenatti of trying to extort Nike. Geragos is not charged with a crime but two people familiar with the investigation confirmed Monday that he is the unidentified co-conspirator in court papers charging Avenatti with attempting to shake down Nike for $25 million by threatening the company with bad publicity. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the information was not made public by prosecutors. Geragos, 61, didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Personally, as brazen as he has been, I believe that he has more than a Kamala card in his back pocket. It was an assistant to Michelle Obama who had contacted the DA.
