The fallout continues for Jussie Smollett and his ally Kim Foxx. The Empire star and Chicago's top prosecutor were both ordered to appear before a retired judge who is pushing for a special prosecutor to investigate Foxx.

Foxx and Smollett, 36, were subpoenaed by retired appellate judge Sheila O'Brien who came out of retirement to push for a special prosecutor to probe Foxx's handling of the case.

Judge O'Brien, who has been a harsh critic of the prosecutor's office, also subpoenaed Foxx's top deputy, Joseph Magats, who exchanged hundreds of text messages with Foxx after she supposedly recused herself from the case.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, O'Brien requested Foxx, Magats and Smollett produce the original documents in the criminal case to "assure" the public "that they have not been altered or destroyed and will not be destroyed throughout this case."

Smollett, who is biracial and same-sex attracted, told police he was beaten by two Trump supporters who yelled racist and homophobic slurs at him outside his Chicago condo in January.

The troubled actor was arrested in February and charged with felony disorderly conduct for lying to police.

A grand jury indicted Smollett on 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct. But on March 26, Foxx persuaded a judge to drop all charges against Smollett and seal all documents in his case.

O'Brien wrote that "Foxx's conflict in this matter is beyond dispute," adding that Foxx should have sought appointment of a special prosecutor. "Instead, Foxx misled the public into believing that Smollett's case was handled ... without influence."

    The first photo look like Kim Foxx was attacked and they throw some liquid on her.

  • ALLMINE?

    His brother looks gayer than him.

  • IAmLegend

    How is a retired judge calling shots?

  • Phillybruh

    All of this for the exact same results, he had no priors he wasn't going to do any jail time and with all the leaks and overcharging he could have actually walked by a jury.

  • Critical Thinker

    Another classic example that we as black folks can’t do what white people do and get away with it easily. Kim was careless and took a risk that is going to destroy her.

    Bff and I met up this weekend to kick it and we touched on this. Sat and talked about all current events bc Extra was on the TV where we were. She said Kim Foxx looks like a Teletubbie in the face and I lost it in the middle of our pre-Cinco de Mayo outing.

  • Vegas1989

    I see that this case is not going to die. Just like Dr. Marlena Evans on The Days of Our Lives. I have watched this lady die 13 times...and she comes back to life and her husband John Black always know where to find her.....LOL

  • Rhyme and Reason

    This is that case won’t end! But, I believe Kim Foxx is going prevail, she will have her “won’t he” moment and say!

    This is so racially charged, and a warning that “you black people can’t do what us whites Do!”

    They already know, if she broke the law or violated her position, this is to tarnish her so badly voters will remember, if they don’t get her fired, make her resign!

    But, Kim has her alliances, a husband, kids, family and friends to support and encourage her, and says her files are open for scrutiny!

  • bemetoo

    He might be, but Jussie is the only out gay in the family

  • Coy little wink

    Say what?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Good for her. This is what you get, Ms. Foxx, trying to do "special favors" for the rich and/or famous.

  • the guest

    So white people are just going to override Ms. Foxx' authority?

    How dare they!

    If she in her power said the charges are dropped, then so it is!

    Black folks really need to stop being so fair with and for white people. They are NEVER fair with and for black people. They HELP each other all the time. So what she helped Jussie, Good she helped Jussie, we need to start wielding power in our favor. They would NEVER override Ms. Foxx power if she were white.

  • the guest

    She does look like a teletubbie,

    But her hair sure is to die for.

    And ONLY naturally extra thick naturally extra long natural black afro textured hair that is then texturized or properly mildly relaxed can achieve her hair. You have to be black, no latin, no white, no asian has hair great like that.

    Not to mention the police sexualizing and objectifying and mocking his sexuality with their salacious inferences, they actually gave Jusse a lawsuit. But good for Jusse to move on and leave it all behind him.

    What?

    I haven't really had much to say about this case. I mean I think he lied, but "they" lie everyday. This is odd. They are really upset that this man lied and they actually had to do their job for once (due to his fame) and investigate a crime. I feel like Keyshia Cole, "I just want it to be over..."

    This Foxx lady is an attorney who seems slick enough to weasel her way out of any serious trouble.

    I’m more interested in the brothers’ lawsuit against Jussie. I think that more than anything will truly tell what happened. Smollett is still just a little too arrogant for my taste. Im ready for him to be exposed unequivocally. He still has the benefit of the gray area right now. I hope the lawsuit makes things more black and white.

  • kboogie

    ?????????? and when he dies, they should not bury him.... Just prop him up on a milk crate with shades on.... In front of a 50 in. Tv, still playing reruns of the God aweful show..... ?

  • QueDawg6

    Yeah you right. Drug dealers like ethically challenged barristers!

  • WhoKnew

    Question. If the court finds that Foxx did something shady or took a bribe to throw out those 16 indictments can those indictments be reinstated? I'm still feeling a certain type of way that he walked. IJS.

  • SeehereSeehere

    Privileged white men attempting to put a black woman “back in her place” when she doesn’t play ball in accordance to their version of justice. In their minds justice is supposed to always give white men and advantage and that advantage should be carried out in a non-verbal, non-verifiable way so as to have everyone think “that’s just the way it is” rather than the truth- inequality within our system of justice the bends towards benefiting white males. If they are to treat her that way then they need to treat every DIstrict Attorney in the country this way. Why are they mad at her anyway? The white male prosecutor cut the deal not her. It’s like they are trying to transfer the blame of the white male onto her.

    Whenever I see Kim Foxx, I wonder if relaxed hair can indeed be healthy, because she looks to have a beautiful head of healthy, natural relaxed hair. I just assumed relaxed could not be healthy. Oh and she’s as corrupt as it gets. I wonder if she was “paid off” or just did favors for powerful people connected to this case.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's not her hair. Her real hair is a short, grey, asymmetrical bob. You can see it if you blow up high res photos of her.

  • Li-Wright

    That prosecutor's office has been a den of mess for years. Before Kim was Prosecutor it was controversial, but she seems to be trying to please the BLACK community and power players (Jesse Jackson, et al) and now the White power players are pushing back.,
    Kim will probably be primaried next year.

  • Li-Wright

    You're right. The prosecutor could throw out 15 of the 16 and keep 1.

  • Li-Wright

    Well, she stepped in it. Also, she's been letting cop killers who had previous convictions and arrests walk out of court on probation, etc. The retail associations are mad because she won't prosecute shop lifters. So the young kids go downtown and just steal from the (high-end) stores knowing they won't get prosecuted. she's been steppling in doo-doo for a long time. I think they will run her out of office.

  • Li-Wright

    Nope this is about Kim Foxx. The white establishment, the white power brokers, the business community (retail) want her out.

  • Li-Wright

    Are you sure that's not her hair?

  • wigmon68

    It all depends. If the charges were dismissed with prejudice, then he cannot be tried for the same crime on the evidence that existed at the time of the dismissal. He could be tried on the same crime, but only if new evidence is found and existing evidence from the dismissed case could not be used.

    another possibility could be if smollett was involved in the bribe or some other extortion to get the case thrown out. If the case was illegally thrown out and he was part of the illegal activity to get the case thrown out, then even if dismissed with prejudice, it could be reopened.

    The dismissed case was sealed, so we do not know the particulars of the dismissal. I am going to guess since the community service and $13k bond was paid that the agreement meant a dismissal with prejudice.

  • wigmon68

    I am not at all shocked that someone would be ignorant enough to make a post like this. I am a bit shocked that anyone would up vote it.

    You don't work so hard on your career then put it on the line as a favor to anyone. Regardless of the merit of this case, she might very well get disbarred here and for what.

  • Evillene

    I don't understand what they believe she did wrong. She recused herself when she didn't have to. Foxxy knew this case was getting an inordinate, unjustified amount of attention and that the rabidly racist and/or homophobic bloodthirsty masses were screaming for a punishment that didn't fit the crime. She did not want to waste Chicago's limited resources on the UNNECESSARY and costly prosecution of a black and gay man. She merely reminded the prosecutor in charge that his duty was to the taxpayers of Illinois. Some of that money needs to be saved to pay off the many victims of the brutally racist Chicago PD.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    She didnt recuse herself. She had her fingers in it the whole time!

  • wigmon68

    She did not recuse herself. IF so, the case would have been a special prosecutor and handled outside her office (required by law). Also, there are those pesky texts between her and the attorney who "took over the case" after she "recused" herself.

  • Guess Who
