State's attorney spokeswoman Keira Ellis said Foxx "informally separated herself from the decision-making over the case...in an abundance of caution".

The city of Chicago sent a letter to Jussie Smollett on Thursday demanding the actor pay $130,000 to the city to offset the costs associated with investigating the alleged hate crime hoax he is accused of concocting.
