Jussie Smollett’s Lawyer Says He Hasn’t Ruled Out Suing The City Of Chicago

Actor Jussie Smollett’s attorney Tina Glandian said her client has yet to decide if he will pursue a lawsuit against the city of Chicago, on “Good Morning America” Wednesday.

“We’re weighing our options now,” Glandian told host George Stephanopoulos. She also called Smollett “a victim” and said he still needs to begin healing from the alleged attack so he can get his life back on course.

“For Jussie what’s really important is, he really just wants his career and his life back,” she continued. “Again, he did not ask for any of this. He was a victim of a crime. This has completely spiraled out of control and become a political event at this point, and his goal and focus right now is just getting his life back on track. He has not even started healing from the initial attack because he’s been dealing with everything that’s happened since then.”

Chicago dropped the 16 felony charges against the “Empire” actor Tuesday after he agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bail back to the city. His record was expunged after performing two days of community service with Rev. Jesse Jackson’s nonprofit group.

Smollett faced backlash on social media for receiving special treatment. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Democrat, said Smollett was let off the hook because of his celebrity status.

“We’re shocked at the mayor and the police superintendent doubling down yesterday when the prosecutor after a dispassioned look at the evidence realized that this does not hold up and chose to voluntarily dismiss all counts and expunge his record,” Glandian said. “So at this point we’re going to weigh our options and see — and see how this develops.”
