Jussie Smollett's lawyer is saying that he will NOT be intimidated by the City of Chicago trying to to recover $130k in investigative costs.
Jussie's lawyer, Mark Geragos, sent an letter to the city, saying Jussie "will not be intimated," and that the city's claims against his client are "false and defamatory." There's even a chance that Jussie will attempt to sue the city for defamation.
He and his lawyer are still maintaining that the "attack" was 100% real.
Geragos also says the City NEVER goes after individuals under these circumstances, threatening to mount a constitutional attack if the case goes forward.
