    City Sues 'Empire' Actor Jussie Smollett Over Costs Of Police Work Despite Dismissal Of Charges I5Bn3

    From The Chicago Tribune

    Megan Crepeau of The Chicago Tribune wrote:
    City Sues 'Empire' Actor Jussie Smollett Over Costs Of Police Work Despite Dismissal Of Charges $

    Outgoing Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration says it has gone to court to try to force Jussie Smollett to pay Chicago back for an alleged hate crime hoax even though Cook County prosecutors dropped all charges against the Empire actor.

    The lawsuit, filed late Thursday in Circuit Court, comes after Smollett failed to pony up $130,106 by a deadline imposed by the city to cover the cost of the police overtime hours expended in the investigation into his allegations.

    The upcoming battle in civil court promises in many ways to mirror the criminal charges against Smollett that were abruptly dismissed by prosecutors last month. Both center on the same question: Did Smollett stage a physical assault on himself, claiming his attackers shouted racial and homophobic slurs?

    The suit did not specify the damages that the city will seek, but the city said that more than two dozen Chicago police officers and detectives worked a combined 1,836 hours of overtime over at least two weeks while investigating Smollett’s claims.

    A defiant letter sent last week by Smollett's lawyer warned the city against suing him, saying the actor "will not be intimidated into paying the demanded sum."

    In a brief statement issued Thursday, the city's Law Department said the lawsuit against Smollett “pursues the full measure of damages allowed under the city’s ordinance forbidding false statements. The city declined further comment.

    It sounds to me that the City of Chicago is a bit salty over this because they didn't do their job in their investigation of Jussie Smollett and his claim of being assualted and men using homophobic slurs.  The smart thing is to seek the truth before jumping to the conclusion that he faked it in order to get more money from the show, Empire.  I still don't know what the truth behind all this is, and I'm waiting to comment further on this, but right now, I see that Chicago is seeking treble damages, meaning that they are seeking three times the amount that they say Smollett owes for the investigation.  This would come out to $390,318 if the courts find in favor of the City.  I will wait on that result too, but for now, I want the thing I wanted since the initial investigation started.  To use my signature line from Bethea's Byte: Fact Check... "The truth will set you free... Anything else will set me off."
