The legal team of Jussie Smollett is attempting to release him from his obligation to reimburse the city of Chicago for the cost of investigating his hoax hate crime by blaming policing for investigating in the first place.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Smollett attorney William J. Quinlan said in a motion he filed that asking Smollett to pay those fees was "ridiculous and a stretch."

Quinlan also claimed that Smollett had "no control" over how deep the investigation into his claims would run.

In other words, the fault lies with Chicago police because they did their job.
