CHICAGO (AP) The City of Chicago has sued “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett to recoup the costs of investigating a racist, anti-gay attack that officials say he staged. City lawyers filed a civil lawsuit Thursday in a Cook County court after local prosecutors in March dropped all criminal charges against him. The legal action comes just days after Smollett refused a demand that he pay more than $130,000 to reimburse Chicago. Smollett denies orchestrating the Jan. 29 incident as a publicity stunt.
