I am back after being locked out for a while.

All the files haven't been released yet. Presumably there could be an appeal (some news sources report Smollett's lawyers are saying privately they won't appeal). Presumably there are possibly legitimate reasons to redact some information before release.


And I sincerely hope there won't be illegitimate redactions. I'm expecting that won't happen. Hope I'm right.

Do we have to wait the usual 30 days for them to file/not file an appeal?

I'm not sure about redactions. Isn't it all a matter of public record?

The redactions should be limited to things like health and financial information.

New York Times:

"Cathy McNeil Stein, the lawyer representing the state, said outside the courtroom on Thursday that the state’s attorney’s office planned to review its files and turn over documents that were previously sealed. The office said in a statement that it would release the documents by June 3."

Looks like he's out of Empire for good:
“Jussie [Smollett] will NOT be returning to ‘Empire,'” series co-creator Lee Daniels said Tuesday.

Daniels was responding to a Variety report in which multiple production sources said that “Empire’s” writing staff was breaking ideas for the show’s sixth and final season with the expectation that Smollett would appear in the back half of the 18-episode season.

This is the first public acknowledgment that Smollett will not return for the final season of the Fox drama series. He was written out of the final episodes of the show’s fifth season following severe backlash stemming from accusations the actor and musician faked a hate crime against himself earlier this year in Chicago.
