Gloria Schmidt, a lawyer for Olabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo, who said they helped Jussie Smollett stage a racist and homophobic attack against himself, speaks during a news conference Tuesday, April 23, 2019, in Chicago.

The federal lawsuit names Mark Geragos and his law firm as defendants and that they continued to say publicly that the brothers “led a criminally homophobic, racist and violent attack against Mr. Smollett,” even though they knew it wasn’t true.
