The Smollett case just got more interesting when a retired appellate court judge, who was observing while retired, stated that Foxx’s handling of this was inappropriate and is now pushing for a special prosecutor to investigate this. Foxx recused herself and then jumped back in at a later date and dropped the charges. Judge Leroy Martin is set to relook at this but O’brien suggested he too recuse himself due to his son works for Foxx. The judge has a week to decide what he’ll do.
I’m proud of this Judge O’brien and her good intent to seek equal justice for all. What say you?
