A CHICAGO JUDGE UNSEALED DOCUMENTS CONNECTED TO EMPIRE STAR…READ HERE
A group of media organizations asked the court to unseal the records regarding the actor’s case, citing a need for more information about the confusing case.
A Chicago judge on Thursday unsealed Jussie Smollett’s court records so that court documents related to the “Empire” actor’s arrest be made publicly accessible.
Mr. Smollett was accused of staging a racist and homophobic assault against himself. After the charges were dropped in March, the court approved a request by Mr. Smollett’s lawyer to seal the case. Too many people weren’t too happy about that decision. Several news organizations asked the judge to reverse that decision, citing a need for more in tell on the strange case.
