A judge in Chicago has ordered the file in the Jussie Smollett criminal case unsealed.

Cook County Judge Steven Watkins made the decision on Thursday, saying Smollett did not have a right to privacy anymore because both he and his lawyers have spoken in the media about the case.

The article goes on to state the following:

‘These are not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply be let alone,’ he said in his order, referring to Smollett’s lawyers media tour after the charges were dropped.

Cook County State’s Attorney has said it will release them by June 3.

Judge Watkins said in his ruling that Smollett forfeited the right to protect his privacy and keep the criminal case against him sealed by his multiple interviews with the media.
