EMPIRE Star, JUSSIE SMOLLETT Sued By the City Of Chicago
Jussie Smollett claimed months ago that he was attacked by two white men who chanted homophobic and racial slurs at him.
According to the Chicago Police Department, 1,836 hours of overtime work was done in the search for his attackers, which they say cost taxpayers $130,106.15.
Under city ordinance, the city is entitled to recoup three times its total damages, or about $390,000.
The complaint was filed on Thursday in Cook County Circuit Court where the city will also seek unspecified attorneys’ fees and costs.
