Judge Appoints Special Prosecutor to Investigate Cook County State’s Attorney

The dismissal of charges was a bit strange. Jussie Smollett incident isn’t over: Chicago judge appoints special prosecutor to investigate.

Judge Michael Toomin suggested that State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had mishandled the case by appointing a top aide to handle it after she had purportedly recused herself.

In his ruling,Toomin said that Foxx, having recused herself, did not have legal authority to turn the case to over to another prosecutor in her office.
