The attorneys of shamed actor Jussie Smollett are heading back to court on Wednesday to try and overturn a judge's decision to have a special prosecutor review the case.

They also argue that Judge Michael Toomin is too biased to make the decision and are requesting a new judge.

Smollett was indicted on 16 charges of disorderly conduct after he allegedly staged a hate crime. He allegedly paid two brothers to attack him, pour bleach over him and tie a noose around his neck. At the time, Smollett claimed that his white attackers yelled "MAGA country" during the assault.

The case was abruptly dismissed, as were all of the charges, and fingers were pointed at State's Attorney, Kim Foxx.

A judge has ordered a review into the dismissed charges, and Smollett is not happy. But if he did not stage the hoax, then he should have nothing to worry about, right?
