Jussie Smollett Sued For $130k By The City Of Chicago

Empire actor, Jussie Smollett has been sued by Chicago city who are requesting he pays the sum of $130k which is the amount spent on carrying out investigation to his ‘false report’.

The suit claims:

“For the next two weeks, the CPD expended significant resources investigating [Smollett’s] false report of a high-profile hate crime and physical assault. Over two dozen CPD officers and detectives participated in the investigation, ultimately spending weeks investigating [Smollett’s] false statements,” the suit alleges. “During the course of CPD’s investigation into [Smollett’s] false statements, CPD has incurred 1,836 overtime hours, which resulted in the City paying $130,106.15 in overtime pay as a result of [Smollett’s] false statements.”

This is coming weeks after Smollett was discharged after all charges against him were dropped by a court.

However, the city believes he has to pay for the time and resources it out into work towards the case.

Jussie Smollett was arrested and charged for claiming he was attacked by two white men who hurled homophobic and racial slurs at him.
