Jussie Smollett Invokes George Floyd’s Death In Legal Battle With City Of Chicago

Former Empire actor Jussie Smollett has used the recent protests over the death of unarmed Black man, George Floyd — when filing his current paperwork in his lawsuit against the city of Chicago.

“As we see millions across the country rise up to protest and expose police misconduct, the city, by its refusal to produce the requested documents, is choosing to actively resist a citizen’s lawful efforts to reveal dishonesty, directly relating to the charges against him, throughout the department, including the police superintendent who oversaw and publicly commented on the investigation of Mr. Smollett’s report of a vicious hate crime and assault,” read the Smollett motion.
