Jussie Smollett Lawyers Sued By Attackers In Alleged Hoax

According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, two brothers involved in Jussie Smollett's alleged hate-crime hoax sued the "Empire" actor's lawyers, accusing them of defamation for insisting they had 'criminally attacked' the actor despite police concluding otherwise.

In a lawsuit filed in Chicago federal court, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo charged that Smollett’s attorneys Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian falsely accused them of attacking Smollett, even after the investigation was over.
