Jussie Smollett is back in court demanding the City of Chicago’s lawsuit be thrown out, saying the $130,000 they spent on investigating isn't his problem.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Smollett is attempting to have the case dismissed immediately.
Smollett introduces a new argument for why he believes the case is nonsense. In the docs, the actor says all he did was file a police report.
The city is seeking the $130,000 to recoup the costs of investigating the alleged attack against him.
Smollett says “the filing of a police report, in and of itself, does not necessitate a sprawling investigation nor does it, as a practical matter, usually result in an investigation as extensive as the one the CPD chose to undertake in this case; rather, the filing of a police report enables the police and prosecutors to decide whther and how to investigate.”
