Judge In Chicago Says Jussie Smollet's Lawyers Aren't Allowed To Practice Law

The actor's high-profiled lawyers may have to hit the road and stop representing the actor.

(AllHipHop News) A retired judge who forced the appointment of a special prosecutor in the ongoing saga of Jussie Smollet is going after the disgraced actor's high-powered legal team.

Retired Judge Sheila O’Brien has been a thorn in Jussie's side since March when the actor was cleared of 16 felony charges for faking his assault back in January.

Judge O'Brien started looking at the case and eventually won a motion calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Jussie as well as Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

Now Judge O'Brien is looking to dismantle Jussie's high-powered lawyers, Mark Geragos, and Tina Glandian.

This could have a huge impact on Jussie's legal strategy since Glandian just filed a motion asking a judge to overturn the appointment of a special prosecutor.

Judge O'Brien says the celebrity lawyers have no business representing Jussie in Chicago since neither of them has licenses to practice law in Illinois.

She is asking a judge to report the lawyers for unlicensed practice of the law, in addition to throwing their motion to dismiss out of court.

A hearing is set for July 31 and that's when Jussie will learn his fate, or whether Judge O'Brien's victory with the appointment of a special prosecutor will stand.

Jussie maintains he was beaten by two white men supporting President Donald Trump. The men supposedly tied a noose around his neck and dosed him with bleach.

But the cops claim the whole thing was just a ruse and that Jussie allegedly paid two Nigerian brothers to orchestrate the attack.

The Attacks on Jussie Smollett are Racist, Homophobic, and frankly Vile. Jussie Smollett is an Exceptioally Talented Black Gay Male Actor, who brought positive awareness and education about the lives of a few million Black Gay Men in America. We are challenged by Racism, Homophobia, and Homo-hatred, as well as Violence in America from both White and Black Americans. His role, superbly acted in Empire made history, by focusing on the lives of Black Gay Men facing HIV/AIDS and Homophibia. The actual Incident Jussie Smollett is accused of having falsely fabricated is frankly, "Irrelevant"! No one was injured, or hurt. The Chicago Police and their Police Chief wasted time accusing Jussie Smollett, which could have been spent preventing Anti-LGBTQ Violence in Chicago. Therir actions against Jussie Smollett are Homophobic and in themselves, Acts of LGBTQ VIolence against a Black Gay Man.

Jussie Smollett should able to contonue his Great Performance on Empire.

Thank you Jussie Smollet for making us visible in America. Many of my friends and I are very proud of you.

Sincerely, Frank Oldham, Jr. (Former Assistant Commissioner for HIV/AIDS/STD Programs and Policy for the Chicago Department of Public Health (1998 -2001).

Having the FBI investigate this case is what Jussie wanted in the first place, so he's not worried about the FBI looking into it! If they do, maybe the real truth will finally come out because they be bought and everyone will see that Jussie was set up. The mayor and the superintendent was very upset when Trump said he was going to have the FBI investigate this case because they know they are lying and will be caught in those lies!

What makes this story really upsetting is the misinformation. Jussie never said two white guys that were Trump supporters beat him up. He said the one guy that he could see appeared to have pale skin around the eye area and he never saw the second guy. Two witnesses said they saw at least one white guy leaving the area of the attack and no one could I.D. the second guy. The CPD said the men were white because Jussie said they yelled out "This is MAGA country!" It was the CPD that assumed they were white, not Jussie! Get your story right. I read the case file in it's entirety! The only culprits are the two brothers. Not Jussie!
