Jussie Smollett‘s lawsuit that was filed against the city of Chicago will not be moving forward after it was tossed out by a federal judge.
Deadline reports that US District Court Judge Virginia Kendall ruled that the former Empire actor’s claim of malicious prosecution is kaput, for now.
However, Jussie can refile only if he’s found not guilty in his upcoming trial.
He’s facing charges of lying about a racially charged hate crime that took place in early 2019. Jussie has pleaded not guilty.
