Smollett Wants To Move Chicago Lawsuit To Federal Court

Jussie Smollett is requesting that the lawsuit filed against him by the city of Chicago be moved from state to federal court.  In a motion filed Wednesday, the actor’s lawyers argue that federal court is the proper venue for the case because the actor is a California resident.  The city sued Smollett in April for the cost of investigating his allegations that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago in January.  The suit came after prosecutors decided to dismiss charges against the actor related to making a false report.
